Socialism . . . Seriously: A Brief Guide to Surviving the 21st Century (Revised & Updated Edition) By Danny Katch Cover Image


A sharp, funny, and engaging introduction to socialist ideas, movements, and solutions for a world in crisis.

Now with 50% more socialism

is a warm and witty introduction to the radical traditions of protest and politics that stretch from Karl Marx through today's movements for democracy, equality, and a livable planet. In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition, Danny Katch uses humor and imagination to take an unflinching look at the rising threats posed by climate change, billionaire oligarchs, and the far right--and makes a compelling case that a socialist world is both necessary and possible.

Katch separates the lies spun by capitalism's defenders from the system's brutal realities, and is candid about debates and challenges facing the socialist movement today. This book is for people who want to take a deeper look at what socialism is... but maybe not that deep.

Sincere, irreverent, informative, and playful, Socialism... Seriously is a unique and timely contribution to our movements for justice.
