The New Communism
work by Bob Avakian
For anyone who cares about the state of the world and the condition of humanity and agonizes over whether fundamental change is really possible, this landmark work provides a sweeping and comprehensive orientation, foundation, and guide to making the most radical of revolutions: a communist revolution aimed at emancipating humanity – getting beyond all forms of oppression and exploitation on a world scale.
The author, Bob Avakian, is the architect of a new synthesis of communism. This new synthesis is a continuation of, but also represents a qualitative
leap beyond, and in some important ways a break with, communist theory as it had been previously developed. Avakian has written this book in such a way as to make even complex theory accessible to a broad audience. In this book, he draws on his decades of work advancing the science of communism and his experience as a revolutionary communist leader, including leading the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, as its Chairman since its founding in 1975.
This is a pathbreaking work, one that scientifically analyzes the system of capitalism-imperialism and its unresolvable contradictions; confronts the challenges facing the movement for revolution; and forges a way forward to making an actual revolution in this country, as part of contributing to communist revolution internationally.

This book consists of the major opening day presentation
given by Bob Avakian to a conference held in the summer of 2015
which was attended by members and supporters of the Revolutionary
Communist Party. This talk provided the basis for several days of lively
and substantial discussion, informed by “Framework and Guidelines
for Study and Discussion,” which is included as an appendix to this work.
This book is a masterwork and a master class—it is a living laboratory
of the new synthesis of communism developed by Bob Avakian. It is also
striking in its ability to combine high level revolutionary communist theory
and modeling of revolutionary leadership with a visceral, colloquial and
passionate style that will resonate with and be accessible to a wide
variety of readers.
This thought-provoking book is sure to challenge stereotypes and
