The changing face of U.S. politics : working-class politics and the trade unions by Jack Barnes ( Book )
7 editions published between 1981 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a Handbook for the generations of workers coming into the factories, mines, and mills - workers who will react to the uncertain life, ceaseless turmoil, and brutality that will accompany the arrival of the twenty-first century. It is a handbook for young people who, in growing numbers, are repelled by the racism, women's inequality, and other intolerable social relations reproduced daily by capitalism on a world scale. It is a book for fighters who sense that this social system, if not replaced, will lead to economic devastation, fascist tyranny, and world war. Above all, it aims to show why only the working class can lead humanity out of the social crisis endemic to capitalism in its decline. It shows how millions of workers, as political resistance grows, will revolutionize themselves, their unions, and all of society

10 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and French and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Capitalism's World Disorder: Working-Class Politics at the Millennium may be the only millennium title on bookstore shelves today whose purpose is not to mystify and obscure but to reveal and clarify. The social devastation, financial panics, political turmoil, police brutality, and military assaults accelerating all around us are not chaos. They are the inevitable product of lawful and understandable forces unleashed by capitalism."--BOOK JACKET. "But the future capitalism has in store for us is not inevitable. It can be changed by the timely solidarity, courageous action, and united struggle of workers and farmers conscious of their power to transform the world. This book has been written to bring closer that future."--BOOK JACKET

Cuba and the coming American Revolution by Jack Barnes ( Book )
17 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cuba and the Coming American Revolution is about the struggles of working people in the imperialist heartland, the youth who are attracted to them, and the example set by the people of Cuba that revolution is not only necessary - it can be made. It is about the class struggle in the United States, where the revolutionary capacities of workers and farmers are today as utterly discounted by the ruling powers as were those of the Cuban toilers. And just as wrongly."--BOOK JACKET

Malcolm X, Black liberation & the road to workers power by Jack Barnes ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The foundations for the explosive rise of the Black liberation struggle in the U.S. beginning in the mid-1950s were laid by the massive migration of Blacks from the rural South to cities and factories across the continent, drawn by capital's insatiable need for labor powerand cannon fodder for its wars. Malcolm X emerged from this rising struggle as its outstanding single leader. He insisted that colossal movement was part of a worldwide revolutionary battle for human rights. A clash between those who want freedom, justice, and equality and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation. Drawing lessons from a century and a half of struggle, this book helps us understand why it is the revolutionary conquest of power by the working class that will make possible the final battle for Black freedomand open the way to a world based not on exploitation, violence, and racism, but human solidarity. A socialist world
