Marxism and the U.S.A.
In his new book, Alan Woods examines the broad sweep of American history from a Marxist perspective.
Many Americans view the ideas of socialism and Marxism with suspicion and distrust. InMarxism and the U.S.A., the author shows that these ideas are not at all foreign to the history and traditions of the American people. There are many inspiring examples throughout U.S. history which graphically illustrate this. From the revolutionary struggle of the colonists against British rule to the war against slavery, Americans can be proud of their militant and democratic traditions. The heroic struggles of working people for the eight-hour day and the great wave of sit-down strikes in the 1930s offer many lessons for today’s workers and youth.
Marxism and the U.S.A.will serve as an introduction to the rich revolutionary history of the United States.
