9780850365917: Renewing Socialism: Transforming Democracy, Strategy and Imagination

Intellectual and engaging, this collection of political essays examines the failures of socialism in the 20th century with candor, vigorously exploring the nature of global capitalism and offering a vision of a reinvigorated socialism that ambitiously counters weakening pessimism. An outspoken perspective on modern political systems, this book revitalizes socialist thought and rethinks the socialist practice toward a realistic utopia.
