The Crisis of American Democracy (PDF)
$7.99
Add to Cart
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. North analyzes the extreme social and class tensions within American society underlying the bi-partisan “war on terror” initiated under George W. Bush, which ushered in a period of aggressive militarism abroad and the threat of police state rule in the US that has deepened under the Obama administration. Learn More
In Defense of Leon Trotsky (Second Edition) EPub
$9.99
Add to Cart
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. Through a marshaling of facts and detailed analysis, North explains that these works continue the campaign of historical falsification against Trotsky first initiated by the Stalinist bureaucracy in the 1920s. In particular, North’s refutation of Service’s biography has, in the words of Germany historian Hermann Weber, exposed Service as a one who “deals in lies, falsifications of history, dubious references and even anti-semitic prejudices.”

The significantly expanded edition contains a new foreword, four new chapters and two appendices. The additional material includes three lectures for German audiences in Berlin, Leipzig and Mainz, written as answers to apologists for Service’s biography. The fourth chapter, an essay on the 70th anniversary of the assassination of Trotsky, is a paper that was delivered at the 2010 conference of the Association of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies.

The Economic Crisis and the Return of History (PDF)
$2.99
Add to Cart
David North, in three lectures delivered within a few months of the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers, 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 crisis of 2008 represented a turning point in American and world capitalism. Published in 2012, and drawing attention to the mass upsurges of 2011, the themes in these lectures are indispensible for workers and youth currently entering onto the stage of history.
