World, Incorporated: The History of the Supra-National Corporation and its Global Stranglehold on Freedom and Democracy

by Lenny Flank. ISBN: 978-1-61001-011-5. Paperback 6x9, 276pp, List Price $14.99.

It has become a truism in politics that "corporations have become too powerful". Few people understand, however, that there has been a vast shift in global power between 1990 and 2010; corporate power has now exceeded national power and global economic structures now have unchecked control over democratic governments. Power has passed to multi-national corporations who have no country, owe allegiance to no government, and answer to no nation. They have become supra-national. This book is a history of corporations, as they grew from small tightly-controlled public works to huge quasi-governmental behemoths who now have literal veto power over elected national governments.

Non-Leninist Marxism: Writings on the Workers Councils

by Gorter, Pannekoek, Pankhurst and Ruhle.  ISBN 978-0-979-1813-6-8.  Paperback 6x9, 174pp.  List price $11.99.

The recent collapse of the Soviet Union made clear the weaknesses and deficiencies in Leninist theory and practice. In the period between the World Wars, however, an entirely different trend of socialist thought had briefly flowered in Europe, a trend which rejected the Leninist model of centralized party and state, and instead affirmed the democratic self-emancipation of the working class. This movement was "council communism". "Non-Leninist Marxism" presents a selection of the most influential writings from the council communists, including Hermann Gorter, Anton Pannekoek, Sylvia Pankhurst, and Otto Ruhl.

 

"This is an important and well selected of writings by some of the leading figures in the Council Communist tendency of revolutionary Marxism. Most of the writings included in this volume have been largely unavailable in print for some time and their return to publication is an extremely welcome development."

Writings of Big Bill Haywood: Speeches and Pamphlets on Unions, Socialism, Syndicalism, and Revolution

by William Haywood. ISBN: 978-1-61001-010-8. Paperback 6x9, 96pp, List Price $10.99.

William D "Big Bill" Haywood was one of the most colorful figures in American labor history. While working in an Idaho silver mine as a young man, he joined the Western Federation of Miners, and quickly became a member of its Executive Board and then its Secretary-Treasurer. Haywood preached a militant brand of unionism which advocated the overthrow of capitalism by a mass general strike and the use of sabotage. In 1905, a former Governor of Idaho was killed by a bomb; Haywood and two other WFM leaders were tried and acquitted of planning the murder. In 1905, Haywood was a founding member of the revolutionary labor union Industrial Workers of the World (IWW--the "Wobblies") and soon became its Secretary-Treasurer and best-known member. In 1917, 165 IWW members, including Haywood, were arrested and charged with violating the Sedition and Espionage Acts by opposing the First World War. Sentenced to 20 years in jail, Haywood skipped bail and fled the country in 1921.

Jailed in 1919 for an antiwar speech in Ohio, Debs ran for President from his jail cell in 1920, polling almost a million votes -- 3.4 percent of the total votes cast.

"Debs' skills were legendary, and with good reason. As you examine these writings the power of his language is evident. The speeches are well crafted, full of familiar ideas and images, and most of all, clearly spell out what Debs was trying to do." --from Amazon.Com review

Hegemony and Counter-Hegemony: Marxism, Capitalism And Their Relation to Sexism, Racism, Nationalism, and Authoritarianism

by Lenny Flank, ISBN 978-0-979-1813-7-5.  Paperback 6x9, 176pp.  List price $11.99

A critical examination of the relationship between Marxism and other social justice movements, including feminism, anti-racism, gay liberation, environmentalism, anarchism and Native activism. The capitalist social order is like a Hydra, a many-headed dragon. Try to cut off one head, and the others will kill you. The only way to kill the beast is to cut off all its heads at once. The social revolution must grow to encompass not merely the economic means of production, but the entire mode of social life, including its familial, sexual, racial, national, gender and authority roles. The tactics of the traditional Leninists are entirely unsuited for that task. Only a wider-ranging social movement can hope to defeat capitalist hegemony.

"I was very pleased with this book. In particular, the book contains a very good discussion of the elusive concepts of hegemony, counter-hegemony, false consciousness and ideology." --from Amazon.Com Review

History of the Paris Commune of 1871

By Prosper Olivier Lissagaray, Translated by Eleanor Marx.  ISBN  978-0-979-1813-4-4.  Paperback 6x9, 364pp. List price $14.99.

The Paris Commune was a pivotal event in the history of socialist thought. It had such a profound effect on Karl Marx that he amended a portion of his "Communist Manifesto" in response to it. "History of the Paris Commune" is an eyewitness account of the Commune, written in its immediate aftermath by a French worker who participated in the events he describes. Illustrated with 8 pages of photographs.

 

"This is not a light read, but for the historically minded willing to put in the effort to engage it, it will yield a wonderful treasure of knowledge that will take the reader directly into the meetings of the Communard government and also right into the thick of the street fighting. It is hard to find a more detailed work on the Paris Commune, and Lissagaray even goes so far as to explore in detail the short lived Communard uprising that rose up in French provinces at the same time, a subject usually neglected by contemporary histories."

A critique of authoritarian Leninism from the viewpoint of "council communism". Social revolutionaries must reject the failed leninist model as being unsuited to the social conditions existing in the industrialized nations.

The Great French Revolution 1789-1793

by Peter Kropotkin. ISBN: 978-1-934941-90-4. Paperback 6x9, 366pp, List Price $16.99.

The Great French Revolution is Peter Kropotkin's classic account of the history of the upheavels from 1789 to 1793. Although Kropotkin is best known as the chief theorist for the political theory of anarchism, he was also a highly educated man (a member of the Russian nobility), a skilled historian, and a compelling and powerful writer. This sweeping account is written not from the point of view of great leaders, politicians or speechmakers, but from the great mass of ordinary French people, who began the Revolution on their own and who, at every crucial stage, took to the streets on their own initiative to carry the Revolution forward, to end autocracy and introduce democracy.
