  1. New Immigrants and the Radicalization of American Labor 1914-1924

    New Immigrants and the Radicalization of American Labor 1914-1924

    Thomas Mackaman calls “the phenomenon of mass international immigration” the “most consciously-experienced element” of the contradiction between the growth in the productive forces and capitalist social relations based in the nation-state system. He has done what historians must strive to do: hold a lantern to those overlooked but decisive moments in history the lessons of which must be assimilated to combat political reaction today. New Immigrants and the Radicalization of American Labor is not a general labor history of the 1914-24 period. Instead, the book is centered on three specific sections of the working class in the US: coal miners in Illinois, steelworkers in the 1919 national steel strike, and miners in Northern Minnesota’s iron range. The three industries were constituent parts of the emerging national steel industry and were linked by the Great Lakes as an internal waterway. Learn More

    Desert Slaughter: The Imperialist War Against Iraq (Statements of the Workers League, 1991)

    The 1991 Persian Gulf War heralded the beginning of a new imperialist re-division of the world, with US capitalism attempting to use its military power to offset its declining position in the world economy vis-à-vis its major rivals. This contemporaneous analysis of the 1991 Persian Gulf War is essential reading for a historical understanding of the driving forces behind the 2003 US invasion and ongoing occupation of Iraq.

  10. Marxism and the Trade Unions

    Marxism and the Trade Unions

    In In this lecture, originally presented on January 10, 1998, David North, chairman of the international editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site, reviews the history of the relationship between the socialist movement internationally and the trade unions. He traces the protracted process of degeneration that has transformed the unions into organizations utterly hostile to the working class. North refutes modern pseudo-lefts who continue to champion the trade unions as “mass working class organizations.” He stresses the necessity for the working class to build new forms of organization, indepenent of and in opposition to the unions.
