Overview

Intellectually and politically engaging, Renewing Socialism examines the failures of socialism in the twentieth century and explores the nature of global capitalism, offering a vision of a reinvigorated socialism to ambitiously counter the current debilitating pessimism.

While democracy and equality remain the goals of socialism, new conditions require imaginative new strategies. Panitch stresses the need for re-founding, reorganizing and re-democratizing labour movements and calls for a change of focus from the accumulation of capital to the accumulation of capacities: political, economic, social, environmental and human.

This new edition includes an interview with the author in which he discusses:

  • the impact of American imperialism on left strategies worldwide;
  • what common interests work for solidarity and against divisions of race, gender and class;
  • whether, as green parties turn towards market socialism, there is space left for a red-green anti-capitalist coalition;
  • if new socialist parties can avoid the mistakes of communist and social democratic parties in the twentieth century.
