Andrej Grubacic is a radical historian -- or, more accurately, an anarchist historian -- from the Balkans. Formerly based in Belgrade, post-Yugoslavia, after many adventures and misadventures he found himself in Fernand Braudel Center at SUNY Binghamton. Andrej teaches at ZMedia Institute and most recently at the University of San Francisco. He has been part of many networks as an anarchist organizer (DSM!, Peoples Global Action, WSF, Freedom Fight, and many others). He is one of the founding members of the Global Balkans, a network of Balkan anti-capitalists in diaspora, and the ZBalkans, a Balkan edition of Z Magazine. Most recently he co-authored the book Wobblies and Zapatistas (PM Press, 2008) with Staughton Lynd.
