"There will be a victorious revolution in the United States before there will be a victorious counterrevolution in Cuba." That 1961 statement by Fidel Castro remains as true today as when it was spoken. This is a book about the class struggle in the U.S., where the revolutionary capacities of workers and farmers are today as utterly discounted by the ruling powers as were those of the Cuban toilers. And just as wrongly. It is about the example set by the people of Cuba that revolution is not only necessary--it can be made.

Mary Ritter Beard was the single most important advocate and practioner of women’s history…She virtually invented the field, said historian and professor Barbara Sicherman of this visionary and ground-breaking historian who devoted her life to reconstructing women’s past—a past that had remained largely unstudied, undocumented, and unacknowledged. Beard held a firm conviction that women had a far greater impact on history than male historians had ever recognized and she believed that a knowledge of their own history would enable women to realize their full potential as active members of society. With this essential—and accessible—selection from her writings and speeches, Ann J. Lane restores Beard to her well-deserved place at the core of early-twentieth-century feminist history and theory.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was more than the civil rights movement's most visible figure, he was its voice. This book describes what went into the creation of that voice. It explores how King used words to define a movement. From a place situated between two cultures of American society, King shaped the language that gave the movement its identity and meaning. Fredrik Sunnemark shows how materialistic, idealistic, and religious ways of explaining the world coexisted in King's speeches and writings. He points out the roles of God, Jesus, the church, and "the Beloved Community" in King's rhetoric. Sunnemark examines King's use of allusions, his strategy of employing different meanings of key ideas to speak to different members of his audience, and the way he put into play international ideas and events to achieve certain rhetorical goals. The book concludes with an analysis of King's development after 1965, examining the roots, content, and consequences of his so-called radicalization.

U.S. Imperialism Has Lost the Cold War ...That's what the Socialist Workers Party concluded in the wake of the collapse of regimes and parties across Eastern Europe and in the USSR that claimed to be Communist. Contrary to imperialism's hopes, the working class in those countries has not been crushed. It remains an intractable obstacle to reimposing and stabilizing capitalist relations, one that will have to be confronted by the exploiters in class battlesin a hot war. Issue no. 11 of the Marxist magazine New International analyzes the propertied rulers' failed expectations and charts a course for revolutionaries in response to the renewed rise of worker and farmer resistance to the economic and social instability, spreading wars, and rightist currents bred by the world market system. It explains why the historic odds in favor of the working class have increased, not diminished, at the opening of the 21st century. Also includes: The Communist Strategy of Party Building Today by Mary-Alice Waters Socialism
