The New Communism

A Pathbreaking new

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.

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 conventional thinking.
