Praise for The Socialist Manifesto:
“Accessible, irreverent and entertaining, Bhaskar Sunkara has delivered a razor-sharp guide to socialism’s history, transformative promise, and path to power. This book also serves as an irresistible invitation to join in building that power, and in shaping the radically democratic future that is our best hope in these make-or-break times.”
“Thanks to the dysfunctionality of contemporary capitalism, ‘socialism’ has reentered the American political vocabulary, especially among the young. In The Socialist Manifesto, Bhaskar Sunkara gives us a lively account of socialism’s history and current meanings, and makes the case for a genuine alternative to our deeply unequal social and political order.”
