  2. Marxism by V.I. Lenin

    Marxism by V.I. Lenin

    Excellent summary by V.I. Lenin of the historical, philosophical and economic foundations of Marxism. Lenin wrote "The Three Sources and Three Component Parts of Marxism" as a tribute marking the thirtieth anniversary of Marx's death. This short work has become one of the best known introductions to the complex theories of Marxism, precisely explaining how Marx "continued and consummated" classical German philosophy, English political economy and French socialism and revolutionary doctrine. Lenin introduces the reader to the most essential concepts of Marxism an "integral and harmonious" scientific theory based on a dialectical and historical materialist understanding of society and the development of social knowledge. He then provides a brief exposition of Marx's development of the labor theory of value, the theory of the class struggle, and Marx's unique and most significant contribution to political economy, the theory of surplus value.

  3. Why Study the Russia Revolution? Volume I The February Revolution and the Development of Bolshevik Strategy

    Why Study the Russia Revolution? Volume I The February Revolution and the Development of Bolshevik Strategy

    The 1917 Russian Revolution of was the most significant event of the 20th Century. The taking of power by the Russian working class, under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, transformed the course of human history and still reverberates to this day. Between February and October 1917, Russia was shaken by two monumental revolutions. The first overthrew the Romanov aristocracy that had ruled for more than 300 years. The second overthrew the bourgeois Provisional Government and established the first socialist workers state in history. These events continue to generate debate and controversy. The essays in this volume are unique, in that they are written from a Marxist perspective, looking back from the vantage point of 100 years, and putting the events of 1917 in a contemporary perspective, under conditions of a world wracked by immense social and political contradictions.

  4. Science & Socialism

    Science & Socialism

    The progress of science and reason has always depended upon the progress of society and social relations. Capitalism is a social system in which all human activity, including science, is subordinated to private profit. Technology has been used, not to feed the world's population, but to develop ever more destructive weapons of war.

    The Trump administration has threatened funding to all US agencies that have contributed to the advancement of scientific understanding, while increasing the military budget by $54 billion.

  5. The Election of Donald Trump: The Insurrection of the Oligarchy (print)

    The Election of Donald Trump: The Insurrection of the Oligarchy (print)

    The eruption of mass opposition to US President Trump is an event of enormous importance. It poses the question of the program and leadership that will guide the mass social anger at the militaristic and socially reactionary policies of this administration.

    Trump is the true face of the capitalist oligarchy. The coming to power of his administration is not an aberration in an otherwise peaceful and democratic society, but the outcome of decades of social cuts, growing inequality and unending war, under both Democrats and Republicans.

    The series of articles in this pamphlet outline the political foundations for understanding the origin of Trump's victory and advance a socialist strategy for the working class, the only social force that can defeat the drive toward dictatorship and war.

  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 Political Lessons of the Bernie Sanders Campaign: What the World Socialist Web Site said

    The Political Lessons of the Bernie Sanders Campaign: What the World Socialist Web Site said

    The Sanders campaign constitutes a major political experience for the American working class. But it is also an international experience with important lessons for workers and youth around the world. The presidential bid of the so-called “democratic socialist” from Vermont is one of a number of similar political phenomena involving bourgeois politicians and parties that employ radical phrases and posture as left opponents of austerity and war in order to contain rising working class opposition and keep it trapped within the confines of the existing political and economic system. order 5 or more for $3.00/copy Learn More

  8. The Commissar Vanishes (new edition)

    The Commissar Vanishes (new edition)

    "In The Commissar Vanishes (1997), King investigated and exposed the falsification of Soviet history practiced by the Stalinist regime, as inconvenient figures were excised from photographs and art works. King commented: 'The physical eradication of Stalin's political opponents at the hands of the secret police was swiftly followed by their obliteration from all forms of pictorial existence.' "'In one notorious example (which appears on the cover of the book), a photograph of Stalin with three other Communist Party leaders (including Sergey Kirov) taken in the mid-1920s is worked over through the years, with all of the other figures eventually disappearing, finally leaving by 1940, in a painting based on the photo, only the gravedigger of the revolution.'"

  10. The political significance of the US oil workers strike

    The political significance of the US oil workers strike

    This pamphlet contains a selection of articles first published by the World Socialist Web Site on the strike by US oil workers that began in February 1, 2015. They are vital reading for all wishing to gain a deeper understanding of this significant movement of the working class in the heart of world capitalism. The development of this strike, after decades in which the unions have attempted to suppress the class struggle, is a symptom of immense social tensions in the United States. It reflects the deep resentment felt by working people over declining living standards under conditions where the stock market and corporate profits are at record levels. Learn More
