Read this 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.
