Praise and Reviews

"... so important that it should stand on the shelf of everyone who cares about the destiny of the political Left ... marks the beginning of a new approach."
— from the Foreword by Slavoj Žižek

"At this dark time in the history of our country and of the world, we need some new conversations about Marx and the socialist tradition—conversations free of dogmatism, open to ideas from all sides, but oriented in a progressive direction and eager to learn from thinking critically within the Marxist tradition. This book provides us with one model of what those kinds of conversations can be like."
 Allen Wood, author of Karl Marx and Kant's Ethical Thought

"This brilliant, lively, and scholarly attempt to define communism's present role in addressing the need to remake our world is especially timely in the face of the policies and actions of the Bush administration. Bob Avakian and Bill Martin are to be commended for their steadfast endeavors to bring about a new society. We owe them both our gratitude for this monumental effort to move our world toward justice and righteousness."
 Rev. George W. Webber, President Emeritus, New York Theological Seminary
