  1. 1818 - 2018 The Bicenenary of Marx's birth socialism and the resurgence of the international class struggle

    1818 - 2018 The Bicenenary of Marx's birth socialism and the resurgence of the international class struggle

    2018 marks the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx, the founder of scientific socialism and the author of Das Kapital. World Socialist Web Site international Editorial Board Chairman David North argues that far from being outmoded, Marx's teachings have burning relevance for today. Based on a review of the historical experiences of the Twentieth Century including the Russian Revolution, the rise of Stalinism and victory of fascism in Germany he insists, as Trotsky emphasized, that the greatest challenge is the resolution of the crisis of revolutionary leadership of the working class. This pamphlet also contains the text of the statement Final reflections on the centennial year of the Russian Revoltuion in which he notes the worried tones of bourgeois commentators on the precarious state of world capitalism and the danger that the October Revolution remains a beacon to the working class all over the world.

  6. 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
