The Socialist Manifesto: the Case for Radical Politics in an Era of Extreme Inequality

Author(s): Bhaskar Sunkara

Philosophy, Politics & Current Affairs

The success of Jeremy Corbyn' s left-led Labour Party and Bernie Sander' s 2016 presidential campaign revived a political idea many had thought dead. But what, exactly, is socialism? And what would a socialist system look like today?
In The Socialist Manifesto, Bhaskar Sunkara, editor of Jacobin magazine, argues that socialism offers the means to achieve economic equality, and also to fight other forms of oppression, including racism and sexism. The ultimate goal is not Soviet-style planning, but to win rights to healthcare, education, and housing and to create new democratic institutions in workplaces and communities. The book both explores socialis' s history and presents a realistic vision for its future. A primer on socialism for the 21st century, this is a book for anyone seeking an end to the vast inequities of our age.
