The changing face of U.S. politics : working-class politics and the trade unions by Jack Barnes( Book )

10 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in English 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
Malcolm X, Black liberation, and the road to workers' power by Jack Barnes( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 252 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

16 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and French and held by 234 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."--Jacket

Cuba and the coming American Revolution by Jack Barnes( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 172 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."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Are They Rich Because They're Smart' explains the sharpening class inequalities in the United States and the resulting conflicts accelerated by today's slow-burning world depression. It takes apart the self-serving rationalizations of a growing layer of well-paid professionals that their schooling and 'brightness' equip them to 'regulate' the lives of working people, who can't be trusted to know what's in our own interests."--
