I know of two books:

Stefan Meretz
Linux & CO. Freie Software - Ideen für eine andere Gesellschaft.
(Linux & CO. Free Software - Ideas for a Different Society)
Publisher: AG SPAK
ISBN 3-903830-16-7

Annette Schlemm, Jörg Bergstedt, Stefan Meretz
Freie Menschen in freien Vereinbarungen - Gegenbilder zur Expo 
2000 (Free People in Free Arrangements - Counterpictures on the 
Expo 2000)
Publisher: Projektwerkstatt Saasen
(I'm not sure whether this is really a commercial publisher, 
because it wants to spend all the profit made with the printed 
copies on the battle for a world without domination.)
