Zer0 Books

Culture, society & politics

The modern world is at an impasse. Disasters scroll across our smartphone screens and we’re invited to like, follow or upvote, but critical thinking is harder and harder to find. Rather than connecting us in common struggle and debate, the internet has sped up and deepened a long-standing process of alienation and atomization. Zer0 Books wants to work against this trend.

John Hunt Publishing, the owner of Zer0 Books, has been purchased. The new owner, Etan Ilfeld, is one of the co-founders of Repeater Books and we currently have a moratorium on acquisitions at Zer0 while we look at how these imprints work in parallel. But Zer0 will continue and all books currently in print or production will be published and promoted by a dedicated and active team.
