Why pamphlets?

Pamphleteering has a rich and radical history. Pamphlets were among the first printed forms, and their low cost and ephemeral nature lent them to polemical and propogandist works on topical subjects, a use that came to define them. Pamphlets are (or should be) immediate, accessible and provocative. In a world overflowing with information, they invite us to focus on the importance of ideas, debate, and the possibilities of political and social transformation.
