“The charm of stylish dissent: less Chomsky, more poetry. Empires may come and go but Tariq Ali, the rebel who has lost the streets but gained the ghettos, is here to stay, to fight on ... Buy his spirit.” —India Today
Marx once wrote that 'history weighs like a nightmare on the brain of the living,' and even twenty years after the Soviet Union's collapse activists are still confronted by the legacy of Stalinism. At the same time, capitalism has failed millions of working people and poor around the world.
Please join Haymarket books and Tariq Ali for a global perspective on Capitalism and Socialism in the 21st Century, at the NYC launch of "The Stalinist Legacy: Its Impact on Twentieth Century World Politics".
Ali will be introduced by Anthony Arnove.
This volume, edited by Tariq Ali, aims to deepen our understanding of the origins, impacts, and enduring prominence of Stalinism, so as to help exorcise these ghosts of the past.
