WEDNESDAY JANUARY 20, 7 PM
Revolution Books invites you to a celebration of the on-line release of the major new work--
"The Science, the Strategy, the Leadership for an Actual Revolution, and a Radically New Society on the Road to Real Emancipation"
by Bob Avakian,
Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA

In summer 2015, Bob Avakian (BA) gave a presentation to a gathering of some members and supporters of the RCP, including some people in the Revolution Clubs. The text of that presentation is now available online.  

"Because of Bob Avakian and the work he has done over several decades, summing up the positive and negative experience of the communist revolution so far, and drawing from a broad range of human experience, there is a new synthesis of communism that has been brought forward--there really is a viable vision and strategy for a radically new, and much better, society and world, and there is the crucial leadership that is needed to carry forward the struggle toward that goal."  --revcom.us

This new work--and the new synthesis of communism brought forward by BA overall--is crucial to human emancipation. The title of the new work gives a sense of its range and sweep. This work is for everyone who has big questions about the way the world is now and whether there can be a radically new, much better, world... whose heart aches at the violence and degradation women suffer everywhere, the wanton police murders of Black and Brown people, the suffering of millions of refugees driven from their homes, and all the other horrors... who is part of, or just getting into, the movement for revolution.

My Life, My Body, a collection of essays by Marge Piercy. In the title essay, "My Life, My Body," poet and novelist Marge Piercy vividly recounts the perils (personal and public) of a woman's life before Roe v Wade. The book includes other essays, poems, memoirs, reviews, and rants. An early anti-war activist in the 1960s, Piercy expanded her vision to feminism, then literature, becoming a best-selling novelist without abandoning the radical politics that set her on her path.
