Can socialism make sense?

Submitted by martin on 25 April, 2016 - 5:03

A book from Workers’ Liberty which makes the case for socialism. In a time when socialism is the most searched word on the Merriam-Webster dictionary website, more and more people call themselves socialists, and a self-confessed socialist is leader of the Labour Party, this book explores what socialism means, whether it can rise again, how, and why.

It answers questions such as: What about Stalin? Are revolutions democratic? How can we have a planned economy? and is socialism still relevant?

Read a review of the book here by Paul Hampton, and another here by Jill Mountford.

400 pages: cover price £12. £14.80 including postage.
