The New Communism

From the Publisher:

...This book is a masterwork and a master class—it is a living laboratory  of the new synthesis of communism developed by Bob Avakian. It is also  striking in its ability to combine high level revolutionary communist theory  and modeling of revolutionary leadership with a visceral, colloquial and  passionate style that will resonate with and be accessible  to a wide  variety of readers. 

This thought-provoking book is sure to challenge stereotypes and  conventional thinking.
