El Caso por Socialismo
Something different—an alternative to capitalism—is desperately needed. But what should replace it?

"Is socialism an impossible, discredited dream or the only realistic path for human survival? If you're not sure of the answer, or are just curious about what the Left really believes in, you need to read Maass. He's the Tom Paine of the contemporary American left."—Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums

Global capitalism is in its worst crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Unemployment is growing. America's imperial wars rage on. In this brilliant polemic, translated to Spanish, Alan Maass argues that the alternative is a democratically planned economy based on workers' control.

Alan Maass is the editor of socialistworker.org, a daily website of left news and opinion, and the Socialist Worker newspaper.
