More than thirty years of experience in the labour, radical, and black movements in the United States and distilled by the authors in these pages. This book provides a concise and instructive review of the revolutions of the twentieth century, with separate chapters on the Russian, Chinese, Guinea-Bissau, and Vietnamese revolutions, and examines the various currents of Marxism active in the revolutions of our times. A second section is devoted to the United States, and provides a survey of the class forces in American history as well as the authors' ideas on the objects and means of an American revolution. This edition includes a new introduction by Grace Lee Boggs that puts the book in its historical context and argues for the continuing imperative of revolution.
