Understanding Marxism- 2021 Hardcover Edition by Richard D. Wolff
We published this introductory book on Marx’s ideas because of the power and usefulness today of Marx’s criticism of the capitalist economic system. The 2021 hardcover edition features a new introduction by author Richard D. Wolff, which strengthens the case for why Marxism is worth understanding in context of our modern crisis and pandemic. 

The 2018 version is also available in paperback, ebook, or audiobook.


Stuck Nation: Can the United States Change Course on Our History of Choosing Profits Over People? By Robert Hennelly
In this book, award-winning print and broadcast journalist Robert "Bob" Hennelly bears witness to the ongoing assault of systemic racism, the toll from the World Trade Center toxic exposures, the attacks on our civil service by our own government, the breathtaking concentration of corporate media, the power of our collective agency and more. Stuck Nation lifts up the stories of those whom our capitalist system would otherwise see ‘disappeared’ and offers analysis as to how America can begin putting the wellbeing of its people ahead of its profits.

This book is only available on paperback this season.


The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself by Richard D. Wolff
The coronavirus pandemic, the deepening economic crash, dangerously divisive political responses, and exploding social tensions have thrown an already declining American capitalist system into a tailspin. In this unique collection of over 50 essays, Richard D. Wolff argues clearly that "returning to normal" no longer responds adequately to the accumulated problems of US capitalism. What is necessary, instead, is transition toward a new economic system that works for all of us.

This book is available on paperback, eBook or audiobook.


Understanding Socialism by Richard D. Wolff
Understanding Socialism tackles the taboos and unveils the often hidden histories of socialism, but most importantly it offers a way forward: a socialism built on democracy in the workplace. A blend of history, analysis and opinion, Understanding Socialism is an honest and approachable text that knocks down false narratives, confronts failures, and offers a path to a new socialism based on workplace democracy.

This book is available on paperback, eBook or audiobook.
