LeftWord Books is a publishing venture that seeks to reflect the views of the left in India and South Asia. We publish critical and analytical works on a range of subjects, and pay special attention to works on Marxist theory. We project the interests of the working people and movements for social transformation. 

LeftWord Books was set up in 1999 and their first release was A World to Win: Essays on the Communist Manifesto by Aijaz Ahmad, Prabhat Patnaik and Irfan Habib, edited by Prakash Karat. Since then, we have published a number of titles on globalization and the world economy, Indian politics and international affairs, imperialism, development issues, and so on. They count among our authors Naomi Klein, A.G. Noorani, N. Ram, Vijay Prashad, Ellen Meiksins Wood, John Harriss, Tanya Reinhart, C.P. Chandrasekhar, Jayati Ghosh, Ninan Koshy, Prabir Purkayastha, Praveen Swami, Richard W. Franke, T.M. Thomas Isaac, and others. They  have published some of the texts of Karl Marx, Frederick Engels and Lenin, and more classics from the Marxist tradition are envisaged. 

Apart from our general list, they run two series - Signpost: Issues that Matter and LeftWord Classics.
