The Historic Breakthrough by Marx, and the Further Breakthrough with the New Communism, A Basic Summary
By Bob Avakian
BREAKTHROUGHS: The Historic Breakthrough by Marx, and the Further Breakthrough with the New Communism, A Basic Summary is “a distilled discussion of the theory, strategic orientation and objectives of the communist movement as this was developed from the time of Marx and with its further development and synthesis with the new communism” (as Bob Avakian, the architect of the new communism, describes this work in its preface).
This work delves into the development of communist political theory with historical sweep and scientific analysis, highlighting what was so radically new and revolutionary about the theories first put forward by Marx and then examining the breakthroughs made by Avakian, whose new communism reflects a continuation of the Marxist tradition but at the same time represents a qualitative leap beyond, and in some important respects a break with, communist theory as it had been previously developed. This has resulted in a whole new framework for human emancipation, one defined by its emphasis on the critical importance of science and the consistent application of a scientific method.
These theoretical breakthroughs are brought to life by Avakian, drawing on his ability to “break down” even very complex ideas and concepts in a popular and colloquial way that is accessible to a wide variety of readers.
For anyone who yearns for a different world, one free of all forms of oppression and exploitation, where all humanity could truly flourish and where the planet could thrive, this thought-provoking work is essential reading.
