This pamphlet outlines the development and rightward political trajectory of the tendencies collectively referred to as the pseudo-left—forces that today function as apologists for imperialism while claiming the mantle of “socialism.” In this report, delivered to the Second National Congress of the Socialist Equality Party in 2012, David North discusses the struggle to resolve the crisis of working class revolutionary leadership based on the lessons of the history of the Trotskyist movement.

Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation (PDF)
$1.99
Add to Cart
Marx aptly called the Emancipation Proclamation “the most important document in American history since the establishment of the Union.” The executive order issued by President Lincoln in the midst of the Civil War freed some four million slaves in rebel-held areas of the South, one of the largest property transfers in history.

While in official circles the anniversary of the proclamation has received little notice, its implications continue to reverberate to this day. This bold, revolutionary action serves as an inspiration to oppressed masses all over the world in the struggle against class exploitation. Meanwhile, the American ruling class, resembling more and more the old slavocracy of the South, rejects the democratic principles of the American Revolution and Civil War.

This pamphlet brings together five essays by WSWS writers on the Emancipation Proclamation and issues related to the struggle against slavery, including an interview with American Civil War historian James McPherson. It will appeal to both students of American history and those new to the subject. (PDF version)

The Defense of Culture and the Crisis in Detroit_PDF
$1.99
Add to Cart
The fight to defend the artwork at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is of the highest importance to young people and workers in Detroit, across the United States and internationally. In threatening the collection of one of the premier art museums the ruling elite is demonstrating its antagonism to everything of value in the development of human thought and culture.

This pamphlet contains two important statements growing out of the fight to mobilize the working class against the sale of the DIA artworks by Detroit’s unelected emergency manager. They examine the historical background of the current crisis in the city and demonstrate that the defense of art and culture requires a struggle against a social system, capitalism, that is run entirely in the interests of a handful of very wealthy people.

As Kishore writes, "Art cannot save itself, the nourishment of art and artists must come from the working class, which emerges as the defender of all that is progressive in human history, and the socialist perspective."

Hegel, Marx, Engels & the Origins of Marxism(PDF)
$1.99
Add to Cart
In this review of Duquesne University professor Tom Rockmore’s book, Marx after Marxism, David North answers Rockmore’s distortions and falsifications of the relationship between Marx and the German idealist philosopher, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

In particular, North takes issue with the claim by Rockmore that Marx’s lifelong collaborator Friedrich Engels distorted Marx’s views and falsely presented him as a materialist. Behind Rockmore’s distortion of the positions of Marx and Engels is an attempt to remove the revolutionary essence of Marxism and recast Marx as an advocate of reformist politics.

In the course of this polemic, North sets out in a positive manner Marx’s materialist reworking of the Hegelian dialectic. Among the works North discusses are Marx’s Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right, Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844, and The Holy Family.

The essay in this pamphlet was originally published in 2006. 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.
