A freedom budget for all Americans : recapturing the promise of the civil rights movement in the struggle for economic justice today by Paul Le Blanc( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the Civil Rights Movement is remembered for efforts to end segregation and secure the rights of African Americans, the larger economic vision that animated much of the movement is often overlooked today. That vision sought economic justice for every person in the United States, regardless of race. It favored production for social use instead of profit; social ownership; and democratic control over major economic decisions. The document that best captured this vision was the Freedom Budget for All Americans: Budgeting Our Resources, 1966-1975, To Achieve Freedom from Want published by the A. Philip Randolph Institute and endorsed by a virtual?who?s who? of U.S. left liberalism and radicalism. Now, two of today?s leading socialist thinkers return to the Freedom Budget and its program for economic justice. Paul Le Blanc and Michael D. Yates explain the origins of the Freedom Budget, how it sought to achieve?freedom from want? for all people, and how it might be reimagined for our current moment. Combining historical perspective with clear-sighted economic proposals, the authors make a concrete case for reviving the spirit of the Civil Rights Movement and building the society of economic security and democratic control envisioned by the movement?s leaders?a struggle that continues to this day
Leon Trotsky by Paul Le Blanc( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The name 'Leon Trotsky' is a controversial one. For some, he was a betrayer or a totalitarian. For others, he was a revolutionary knight battling an oppressive system. However you view him, Trotsky was a one of the most important figures of twentieth-century Communism. A leader of the 1917 Bolshevik insurrection in Russia, he organized and led the Red Army to victory in the Russian Civil War - but was challenged and eventually defeated by his rival Joseph Stalin. Trotsky lived the rest of his life in exile until Stalin finally had him killed. In Leon Trotsky, Paul Le Blanc delves deep to understand Trotsky's complex character, relationships, actions and ideas. Interweaving dramatic historical events with Trotsky's multi-faceted personality, this book explores his involvement with and opposition to the Soviet bureaucracy, and his efforts to revitalize the revolutionary wing of the labour movement. Revealed here are his urgent warnings of Hitler's rise and the spread of fascism, his penetrating understanding of the French Popular Front and the Spanish Civil War, and his analysis of the ominous beginnings of the Second World War. Throughout, Trotsky remained animated by the early ideals of the Communist tradition. Drawing from a rich array of sources, Le Blanc offers a balanced portrait of Trotsky in a historical context that will be invaluable for students, scholars or anyone with an interest in political history and extraordinary lives

Studying the past to grapple with issues of war and terrorism, exploitation, hunger, ecological crisis, and trends toward deadening "de-spiritualization", the book shows how the revolutionaries of the past are still relevant to today's struggles.

Wells, Booker T. Washington, Marcus Garvey, W.E.B. Du Bois, Paul Robeson, C.L.R. James, A. Philip Randolph, Martin Luther King Jr., Bayard Rustin, Malcolm X, Ella Baker, and others. This combination of a rich analytical understanding with key primary texts makes Black Liberation and the American Dream a unique and invaluable resource for those engaged in contemporary struggles. It is a crucial text for activists and scholars alike."
Trotskyism in the United States : historical essays and reconsiderations by George Breitman( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume deal with various aspects of the history of the revolutionary socialist current in United States that came to be identified as "American Trotskyism." One of the most dynamic currents in the U.S. Left from the late 1920s to the 1980s, deeply committed to working-class democracy and internationalism, it had an intellectual and political impact well beyond the number of its members. The essays offer the most definitive history of that movement to be produced so far, giving a sense of some of its most colorful personalities and outstanding achievements - as well as it serious limitations. This work is an essential starting point, offering an ample bibliography for those who wish to carry out further research. More than this, the authors develop interpretations that confront the meaning of revolutionary politics in the United States, as they relate the efforts of the Trotskyists to the broader developments of the twentieth century
C.L.R. James and revolutionary Marxism : selected writings of C.L.R. James 1939-1949 by C. L. R James( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C.L.R. James (1901-1989), a prominent black Trinidadian intellectual, has been increasingly recognized as a social critic, historian, and cultural commentator of central importance. During the late 1930s and 1940s, James played a key role in the revolutionary socialist current associated with Leon Trotsky. This volume provides an in-depth look at James's "Trotskyist years," presenting writings by James on Trotsky's life and work that are unavailable in other collections. The volume also includes essays by James on the work of Edmund Wilson and Richard Wright, on the impact of European colonialism on Africa, on the interrelationship between U.S. and international labor history, and on African-American history. Substantial essays by the editors, as well as by Paul Buhle, John Bracey, Martin Glaberman, and Charles van Gelderen, contextualize the actual contributions by James himself, which form the heart of the book
From Marx to Gramsci : a reader in revolutionary Marxist politics by Paul Le Blanc( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The readings collected here - of Karl Marx, Frederick Engels, Rosa Luxemburg, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, Leon Trotsky, and Antonio Gramsci - reflect the experience of the labor, socialist, and communist movements that did so much to shape modern history. A dedication only working-class revolution gives coherence to the influential, philosophical, economic, sociological, and historical works of these writers. Key political concepts emerge from the vibrant selections offered in this reader: working-class independence, class consciousness, trade unionism, a labor party, international solidarity, revolution vs. reformism, the relation of democracy to socialism, the vanguard party, permanent revolution, the working-class struggle for cultural hegemony, and more. Never before have substantial political works by these authors been brought together a single volume." "Paul Le Blanc's introductory essay probes the structure and dynamics of Marxism as a political orientation, tracing connections among components that can be found in the readings: the theory of capitalist development, the theory of the labor movement, the strategy of revolution, the conception of the transition to socialism. Others identified with the Marxist tradition - such as Plekhanov, Kautsky, Stalin, Mao - are also discussed, and attention is given to perspectives of such varied critics of Marxism as Sidney Hook, Bertram D. Wolfe, James Burnham, Daniel Bell, Robert Heilbroner, and C. Wright Mills. Historical reflections are blended with discussion of the durability of capitalism, the disappointment of hopes for workers' revolution, the "collapse of communism," issues of race and gender, the environment, and challenges of the twenty-first century."--Jacket

Writings in exile by Lev Davidovič Trockij( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leon Trotsky was a key political figure of the twentieth century - a leader of the Russian Revolution, founder of the Red Army, author of books on literature, history, morality and politics. Leon Trotsky: Writings in Exile contains some of his most insightful and penetrating works. Exiled and isolated by Stalin, Trotsky used the only weapon he had left - words. In these writings he defends the 1917 revolution, warns prophetically of fascism and analyses anti-colonial movements in the global south. This collection gives a sense of the real Trotsky - passionate, humanist, Marxist. It will introduce the writings of one of history's great revolutionaries to a new generation."--Publisher's website
