The "S" Word: A Short History of an American Tradition... Socialism

£12.99

Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

"During the Cold War it became a dirty word in the United States, but 'socialism' runs like a red thread through the nation's history, an integral part of its political consciousness since the founding of the republic. In this unapologietic corrective to today's collective amnesia, John Nichols calls for the proud return of socialism in American life. He recalls the reforms lauded by Founding Father Tom Paine; the presence of Karl Marx's journalism in American letters; the left leanings of founders of the Republican Party; the socialist politics of Helen Keller; the progressive legacy of figures like Chaplin and Einstein. Now in an updated edition, The "S" Word makes a case for socialist ideas as an indispensable part of American heritage. A new final chapter considers the recent signs of a leftward sea change in American politics in the face of increasing and historic levels of inequality."

John Nichols. Verso, 2015.
