Socialist Books at Socialism 2017!

Socialism 2017 will bring together working class fighters, trade unionists and youth and student activists, anti-cuts campaigners, those who want to find out about socialism and Marxism, and people who want to change the world, for a weekend of discussion and debate on the alternative to capitalist crisis.

Rally speakers will include From Militant to the Socialist Party author Peter Taaffe, Labour MP and Corbyn supporter Ian Mearns, US Socialist Alternative councillor Kshama Sawant, Irish TD Paul Murphy and many more throughout the weekend.
You can find out more about Socialism 2017, and book tickets, over on their website.
Socialist Books will have a stall open throughout the Socialism 2017 weekend, and there will be a chance to pick up our publications alongside a wide selection of books available from Left Books.

London launch – From Militant to the Socialist Party

Thursday 25 May – 7pm

From Militant to the Socialist Party
From Militant to the Socialist Party

Just two weeks before the general election a new book, From Militant to the Socialist Party, will be released. It tracks developments from the Blairite takeover of Labour to the first rumblings of the world economic crisis of 2007-08, and is the sequel to The Rise of Militant.
It is an extremely timely release with people heading to the polls in June. Only by clearly putting forward a radical anti-austerity programme will Jeremy Corbyn be able to lead Labour to victory in this election. His clear call for voters to elect a Labour Party that “is standing up for working people to improve the lives of all” was a good start.
Author Peter Taaffe will be speaking, and there will be a chance to ask questions, buy your copy and get it signed.
