Marxist Classics Vol. 2
More than twenty five years on, the fall of the Soviet Union can now be seen as the prelude to a far greater drama––an unprecedented crisis on a world scale which shows the capitalist system has exhausted itself is ready to follow Stalinism into the dustbin of history.
But this process will require the conscious action of a revolutionary party. And it is impossible to build a revolutionary party without revolutionary theory. Volume Two of the Classics Series collects five more important works Marxist economics and party building.
Wage Labor and Capital
Karl Marx’s Wage Labor and Capital contains many important insights into the workings of the capitalist system and the way in which labor is exploited. With an excellent introduction by Frederick Engels.
Value, Price and Profit
Value, Price and Profit was first delivered as a speech by Marx in June 1865, while he was working on the first volume of Capital, which was published two years later.
“Left-Wing” Communism: An Infantile Disorder
In “Left-Wing” Communism we have Lenin’s exposition of the necessity to combine theoretical firmness with tactical and organizational flexibility in order to win the masses.
In Defense of October
Leon Trotsky’s work In Defense of October is the title of a speech delivered to a meeting of Social Democratic students in Copenhagen to explain the genesis and importance of the Russian Revolution.
Stalinism and Bolshevism
By contrast, in Stalinism and Bolshevism, Trotsky examines the revolution’s bureaucratic degeneration which finally resulted in the Stalinist antithesis of the democratic workers’ state.
By Karl Marx, Frederick Engels, V.I. Lenin, and Leon Trotsky.
Introduction by Alan Woods.
