More About the Author

Bob Avakian has dedicated his life since the 1960's to the cause of revolution and communism. While providing practical leadership to the revolutionary movement as Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, he has deeply studied and summed up the world historical experience of the communist revolution and the socialist societies it has brought into being---the great achievements and the serious problems and errors---and has studied many other fields of human experience and knowledge. He has advanced the science of communism and made decisive breakthroughs in the theory, method, and strategy of revolution and the final goal of communism throughout the world.

Cornel West describes Avakian as someone who "is a long distance runner in the freedom struggle against imperialism, racism and capitalism" in his comment about Avakian's memoir, From Ike to Mao and Beyond, My Journey from Mainstream America to Revolutionary Communist.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Virasana on December 20, 2004
Format: Hardcover
To me this is sort of a history book, a history of very deep questions going on during the 80s, that people active in that time might remember, and that people active now should know. For instance, I knew very little of the Overtown Rebellion that took place in Miami, that is a very big deal but you won't learn about it from most sources. Also an essay on what was then the emerging rap music scene is really interesting. A lot about what was then an impending WW3 also colors this book, along with the contradictions giving rise to this potential war like globalization (which at that point was still emerging), and Russia and other wars goin on. The short and sharp essays make it easy to get into this stuff and retain it, so I think its a valuable book.

Format: Hardcover
A "best of" of sorts from the terribly important thinker Bob Avakian. It spans 1981 to 1987 but all these articles (taken from the Revolutionary Worker) are still as fresh and brilliant as they were back then. Easier than trying to find back issues
