Party and Class
Socialists aim to change the world and have always sought to organize themselves as effectively as possible in order to achieve this goal.
But what sort of organization do we need? These essays show why we need something more than single-issue organizations, movement coalitions, or reformist organizations if we are to achieve real change.
They also dispel the myths about “democratic centralism” and demonstrate that the kind of socialist party that Lenin built had nothing in common with the Stalinist despotism that replaced it.
Includes essays by Tony Cliff, Duncan Hallas, Chris Harman, and Leon Trotsky.
