The New Communism
The science, the strategy, the leadership for an actual revolution, and a radically new society on the road to real emancipation
This book is for anyone who cares about the state of the world and the condition of humanity and agonizes over whether fundamental change is really possible. It 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.
