Socialist Books presents 'Socialism: Utopian and Scientific'

Socialist Books is very pleased to announce that our next upcoming title will be Socialism: Utopian and Scientific, by Friedrich Engels. It will be out on 11 February 2019, and is available for pre-order here.

Can't wait that long? Good news, our Kindle edition of Socialism: Utopian and Scientific is available now!

Socialism: Utopian and Scientific is an excellent overview of socialist ideas, written by Marx's long-time co-thinker Engels.

It explains how the motor forces of history, above all the class struggle, created the conditions for socialism, and the ideas which underpin it.

Engels looks at the utopian socialist forerunners and the key tenets of scientific socialism. Covering history, economics, philosophy, science and more, Socialism: Utopian and Scientific is an excellent guide to socialist thinking.

This edition contains a new introduction examining the re¨emergence of utopian socialist ideas today. Extensive new footnotes will assist the new reader of Socialism: Utopian and Scientific, making it an essential read for those interested in socialism and Marxism.

Socialist ideas are best when shared and discussed! This is why we're offering a 20% reading group discount on orders of four or more.

To take advantage of this, once you've placed the items in your basket, use the code 'BULK' and the discount will be applied. Get the reading group discount and free postage if you order before 11 February.

Socialist Books is also aiming to produce some notes and questions to encourage discussions - bookmark our website or sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about this and all the latest news from Socialist Books!

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
