Discussion at Revolution Books
special new issue of Revolution on the experience of previous socialist revolutions, and bring your thoughts and questions to this discussion.
The first wave of socialist societies -- beginning with the short-lived Paris Commune in 1871, and then in the Soviet Union from 1917 to the mid-1950s, and in China from 1949 to 1976 -- accomplished great things. They were the rising of the wretched of the earth, involving hundreds of millions in determined struggle to overthrow the old order an build a new world. It is the summing up of these great achievements, as well as their shortcomings, that forms a key part of BA's new synthesis of communism, and the forging of a way forward to emancipate humanity.
