Andrew Laties wrote the first edition of REBEL BOOKSELLER in 2005, in the hopes it would spark a movement. Now, with this fully updated second edition, Laties’s book can be a rallying cry for everyone who wants to better understand how the rise of the big bookstore chains led irrevocably to their decline, and how, even in the face of electronic reading platforms from some of the world’s largest corporations, the movement to support locally owned independent stores, especially bookstores, is on the rise. The book asks readers to recognize their roles in their communities and to take action in the essential work of fostering the creative, locally autonomous citizenry needed by American culture to thrive in the future.
