  1. A Quarter Century of War: The US Drive for Global Hegemony 1990 - 2016 (.mobi)

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

    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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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

  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

  7. 1905 By Leon Trotsky

    1905 By Leon Trotsky

    1905 is an account by Trotsky of the events surrounding the great revolutionary uprising in Russia that year. Long out of print, this book is crucial reading for those seeking an understanding of these great events which served as a "dress rehearsal" for the 1917 Russian Revolution. In his introduction Trotsky notes that the experiences of the 1905 revolution laid his basis for the theory of Permanent Revolution, which formed the theoretical framework for the seizure of power by the Bolsheviks in 1917. The essays by Trotsky are written from the unique vantage point of a participant of the tumultuous events themselves. Learn More

Among the topics covered by Trotsky is the use of the united front and the arming of the working class for self defense. In all his writings he stresses the need for a revolutionary orientation by the working class as the basis for winning vacillating elements of the middle class to the side of socialism.
