Overview

This introduction to socialist thought is by two men perhaps better qualified than any other Americans to write it. Leo Huberman and Paul Sweezy, editors and publishers for almost two decades of Monthly Review, their own independent socialist journal, have built an impressive reputation as keen observers, acute analysts, and lucid writers on the world and domestic scenes. In this book, selected from their writings over the past fifteen years, they present in clear and direct language the basic elements of the socialist critique of capitalist society.

On the occasion of their winning the “Cittá di Omegna” award given by an Italian town (an award previously won by Jean-Paul Sartre, Günther Anders, and Frantz Fanon), the award committee had this to say about Huberman and sweezy:

            The fundamental genius of these two writers lies in a Marxist humanism. . . . In the world’s struggle against capitalism and
            imperialism, there has been neither an argument nor an event which has not found in the works of Huberman and Sweezy an
            interpretation of high intellectual caliber and painstaking lucidity.

Leo Huberman was formerly chairman of the Department of Social Science at New College, Columbia, labor editor of the newspaper PM, and an editor with Reynal & Hitchcock.

Paul M Sweezy was a member of the economics department of Harvard University for more that a decade. From 1943 to 1945 he was with the OSS in England, France, and Germany, and more recently he has been visiting professor of economics at several American universities.
