  1. A Tribute to Tom Henehan: 1951 to 1977

    A Tribute to Tom Henehan: 1951 to 1977

    On October 19, 1997 the Socialist Equality Party held a public meeting in Michigan to commemorate the twentieth anniversary since the assassination of Tom Henehan. "Of all the words that could be used to describe Tom Henehan, superficial is the last that would come to mind. Tom was drawn to the Workers League by its concern for problems of theory, its study of Marxism as a science, and the profound sense of history that permeated its perspective and program."

  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.

  4. In Defense of Leon Trotsky (second edition)

    In Defense of Leon Trotsky (second edition)

    David North defends Trotsky’s legacy against the campaign of historical falsification begun by Stalin and continuing to this day. While Stalin assassinated Trotsky in 1940, he was unable to silence the Fourth International, founded to embody the revolutionary heritage of 1917. This work contains a devastating refutation of biographies of Trotsky published in recent years by three British historians: Ian Thatcher, Geoffrey Swain and Robert Service. The significantly expanded edition contains a new foreword, four new chapters and two appendices. Learn More

  6. A Quarter Century of War: The US Drive for Global Hegemony 1990 - 2016

    A Quarter Century of War: The US Drive for Global Hegemony 1990 - 2016

    Beginning with the first Persian Gulf conflict of 1990–91, the United States has been at war continuously for a quarter century. While using propaganda catchphrases, such as “defense of human rights” and “War on Terror,” to conceal the real aims of its interventions in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa, as well as its confrontation with Russia and China, the United States has been engaged in a struggle for global hegemony.

    The essays and lectures in this volume, informed by a Marxist understanding of the contradictions of American and world imperialism, analyze the progression of military interventions and geopolitical crises as they have developed over the past quarter century, not as a sequence of isolated episodes, but as moments in the unfolding of an interconnected historical process.

  7. The Economic Crisis and the Return of History (PDF)

    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.

  8. The Crisis of American Democracy

    The Crisis of American Democracy

    This volume of lectures is remarkably prescient and historically relevant in light of the recent revelations of NSA spying, drone assassinations and the suppression of Constitutionally protected rights by the Democratic administration of Barack Obama. David North establishes in a detailed analysis of the 2000 and 2004 US presidential elections that behind the breakdown of democracy in the United States lies the deterioration of its global economic position and the unprecedented growth of social inequality—already apparent at that time.

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

    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.

  10. 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
