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
The Crisis of the World Capitalist System: The Perspectives and Tasks of the Socialist Equality Party 2008- 2010 (PDF)
$2.99
Add to Cart
The Socialist Equality Party was incomparable in its ability to predict and assess the global financial collapse of September 2008. In the three years following the collapse of the housing bubble, the SEP laid out its perspectives for the resurgence of working class struggle. The three reports in this pamphlet track the development of the most profound economic crisis since the Great Depression, and outline the urgent tasks facing the international working class—more relevant today than ever.

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."

The Detroit Symphony Strike and the Defense of Culture in the US (PDF)
$1.99
Add to Cart
Since April 2011 when the musicians of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra reluctantly returned to work after a bitter six-month strike, orchestras in more than a dozen American cities have faced lockouts and threats of bankruptcy.

Calling for the re-emergence of the “socially engaged artist,” Arts Editor of the World Socialist Web Site, David Walsh, places the Detroit Symphony musicians’ strike in its historical and cultural context. He addresses how the place of culture has changed in the past half century, and on what basis art and culture should be defended.

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.

The Theoretical and Historical Origins of the Pseudo-Left (PDF)
$1.99
Add to Cart
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.

Thirty Years Since the PATCO Strike (PDF)
$1.99
Add to Cart
In this essay WSWS writer Tom Mackaman examines the significance for the working class of the 1981 strike by PATCO air traffic controllers in the US.

The mass firing of the PATCO strikers by US President Ronald Reagan marked the definitive end of the period of relative class compromise and social reform that had prevailed in the US and other advanced industrial countries since the end of World War II. From that moment on, the capitalist class has carried out a relentless offensive to roll back the gains the working class realized over decades of struggle.
