Accessible, irreverent and entertaining. Bhaskar Sunkara has delivered a razor-sharp
guide to socialisms history, transformative promise, and path to power. This book also serves as an irresistible invitation to join in building that power, and in shaping the radically democratic future that is our best hope in these make-or-break times.
NAOMI KLEIN

The success of Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign revived a political idea many had thought dead. But what, exactly, is socialism? What would a socialist system in America look
like?

In The Socialist Manifesto Bhaskar Sunkara explores socialisms history since the mid-1800s,
And presents a realistic vision for the future. The editor of Jacobin magazine, Sunkara shows that socialism, though often seen primarily as an economic system, in fact offers the means to fight all forms of oppression, including racism and sexism. The ultimate goal is not Soviet-style planning, but to win rights to health care, education, and housing, and to create new democratic institutions in workplaces and communities. A primer on socialism for the twenty-first century, this book is for anyone seeking an end to the grotesque inequities of our age.

Bhaskar Sunkara is the founder and editor of Jacobin, which he launched in 2010. He has written for The New York Times, LeMonde, Vice, and The Washington Post.
