  1. 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.

  4. Globalization and the International Working Class: A Marxist Assement (ePub)

    Globalization and the International Working Class: A Marxist Assement (ePub)

    Globalization and the International Working Class is a polemic that stands the test of time. Mehring Books is pleased to now offer this out-of-print title, first published in 1998 as a reply to the Spartacist League’s attack against the International Committee of the Fourth International (ICFI), in ePub and Kindle formats.

    This work analyzes the transformation of multi-national corporations into massive transnational entities, facilitated by the development of computer technology and telecommunications. Assessing the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the ICFI statement examines the role of the international labor movement, including the trade unions in the capitalist countries, under these changed conditions. The statement points out that the left petty-bourgeois tendencies (the “pseudo-left”) adopted a nationalist standpoint, adapting “to the Stalinist and social democratic bureaucracies in the advanced capitalist countries.”

  5. 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. The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished Twentieth Century

    The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished Twentieth Century

    One hundred years after the outbreak of World War I and the Russian Revolution, none of the problems of the twentieth century—devastating wars, economic crises, social inequality, and the threat of dictatorship—have been solved. In fact, they are posed even more sharply today. David North argues against contemporary historians who maintain that the dissolution of the USSR signaled the “end of history” (Fukuyama), or the “short twentieth century”(Hobsbawm). Learn More

  7. 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.

  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.
