  1. Why Study the Russian Revolution Vol II: Towards Workers Power and World Socialist Revolution

    Why Study the Russian Revolution Vol II: Towards Workers Power and World Socialist Revolution

    The 1917 Russian Revolution was the most significant event of the 20th century. The taking of power by the Russian working class under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky transformed the course of human history and reverberates to this day. Between February and October 1917 Russia was shaken by two monumental revolutions. The first overthrew the Romanov aristocracy that had ruled for more than 300 years. The second overthrew the bourgeois Provisional Government and established the first socialist workers state in history. These events continue to generate debate and controversy. The essays in this volume, the second of two, are unique in that they are written from a Marxist perspective looking back from the vantage point of 100 years and putting the events of 1917 in a contemporary perspective under conditions of a world wracked by immense social and political contradictions.

  3. John Heartfield - Laughter is a Devastating Weapon

    John Heartfield - Laughter is a Devastating Weapon

    Laughter is a Devastating Weapon (Tate Publishing, October 2015) is an exciting publication devoted to the work of German artist John Heartfield (1891-1968), known for his incomparably dark, mocking, politically pointed photocollages. The title aptly refers to the satirical power of Heartfield’s artistic efforts, which earned him one of the top positions on the Nazis’ “most wanted list” when they came to power in 1933 and nearly cost him his life. Authors David King and Ernst Volland present a fascinating group of Heartfield images from King’s own collection. Volland is a German artist, whose work includes photomontages, as well as efforts in other media. Also an author and curator, Volland has brought to light overlooked figures such as Yevgeni Khaldei, the Soviet photographer best known for the iconic image of a Soviet soldier raising a flag over the Reichstag in Berlin in May 1945.

  10. The Historical & International Foundations of the SEP, Sri Lanka

    The Historical & International Foundations of the SEP, Sri Lanka

    Adopted by the Socialist Equality Party (Sri Lanka) at its 2011 founding congress in Colombo, this document depicts the 75-year struggle of the Fourth International in South Asia for Trotsky’s theory of Permanent Revolution. The founding in 1942 of the Bolshevik Leninist Party of India (BLPI), by leaders of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP) who had escaped British jails in Ceylon, marked a decisive advance for the Fourth International in Asia. The document traces the rise, decline and ultimate betrayal of the LSSP, which joined the 1964 coalition government of Madame Sirima Bandaranaike, abandoning the struggle to unify the Tamil and Sinhalese working class, and opening the road to the bloody 25-year civil war from 1983 to 2009.
