  1. The Frankfurt School, Postmodernism and the Politics of the Pseudo-Left: A Marxist Critique

    The Frankfurt School, Postmodernism and the Politics of the Pseudo-Left: A Marxist Critique

    The polemical essays in this volume examine the complex interaction between history, philosophy and politics. The author defends historical materialism against contemporary anti-Marxist philosophical tendencies related to the Frankfurt School and postmodernism.

    Among the topics covered are the irrationalist assault on the traditions of the Enlightenment, the reactionary character of modern utopianism, and the importance of a historically-directed consciousness in the understanding of objective political reality. The book evaluates the work of such neo-utopian theoreticians as Hendrik de Man, Ernst Bloch, Wilhelm Reich, and Herbert Marcuse.

  2. The Economic Crisis & the Return of History

    The Economic Crisis & the Return of History

    The economic crash of 2008, starting with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, set off the deepest world recession since the 1930s, and led to the destruction of tens of millions of jobs internationally. World governments, led by the newly-elected Obama administration, handed out trillions of dollars to ensure the bad debts of the banks and of financial speculators, even while imposing 50% wage cuts on US autoworkers and impoverishment of the broad population.

    David North, chairman of the International Editorial Board of the World Socialist Web Site, argues that the rapid growth of social inequality, rooted in the historic crisis of the capitalist system, will bring on titanic class struggles internationally. The complete breakdown of democratic forms of government, the turn to the far-right by today's ruling elites, the mad pursuit of escalating wars, and the emergence of working class struggle, all provide further confirmation that far from being at an end, "History" is very much with us.

  3. Défense de Léon Trotsky

    Défense de Léon Trotsky

    Léon Trotsky (1879-1940) compte parmi les figures les plus grandes et les plus controversées de l’histoire politique du vingtième siècle. De son vivant, il fut la cible d’une odieuse campagne de mensonges et d’accusations de la part du régime stalinien en URSS, qui culmina par l’assassinat du chef révolutionnaire exilé. Soixante-dix ans après le meurtre de Trotsky, les distortions et falsifications historiques staliniennes, depuis longtemps discréditées, se retrouvent dans le courant dominant de la pensée universitaire.

    The Economic Crisis and the Return of History (PDF)

    David North, in three lectures delivered within a few months of the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers, argues that the rapid growth of social inequality rooted in the historic crisis of the capitalist system, will bring on titanic class struggles internationally. The crisis of 2008 represented a turning point in American and world capitalism.

    Published in 2012, and drawing attention to the mass upsurges of 2011, the themes in these lectures are indispensable for workers and youth currently entering onto the stage of history.

    The Crisis of the World Capitalist System: The Perspectives and Tasks of the Socialist Equality Party 2008- 2010 (PDF)

    The Socialist Equality Party was incomparable in its ability to predict and assess the global financial collapse of September 2008. In the three years following the collapse of the housing bubble, the SEP laid out its perspectives for the resurgence of working class struggle.

    The three reports in this pamphlet track the development of the most profound economic crisis since the Great Depression, and outline the urgent tasks facing the international working class—more relevant today than ever.

  7. Into the Maelstrom: The Invasion of Iraq and the Crisis of American Imperialism (PDF)

    Into the Maelstrom: The Invasion of Iraq and the Crisis of American Imperialism (PDF)

    March 19, 2013 marked the 10th anniversary of the invasion, a criminal act taken in defiance of mass protests all over the world. Over the past decade, the American government has engaged in one military intervention after the next. Meanwhile, the former leaders of anti-war protests have integrated themselves into the imperialist framework through their support for the Obama administration.

    The articles in this pamphlet provide a revolutionary socialist program and perspective for the resurgence of mass opposition to war, and its connection to the growth of working class struggles all over the world. (PDF) Learn More
