The Challenge and Burden of Historical Time: Socialism in the Twenty-First Century


A wonderfully cogent and highly readable account of the structural crisis faced by Capital and the urgent necessity of developing the emerging socialist alternatives to its rule.

In a chapter titled "Socialism or Barbarism" Mészáros points out that if we fail it will be barbarism if we are lucky.

“István Mészáros illuminates the path ahead. He points to the central argument we must make in order… to take to the offensive throughout the world in moving toward socialism.”

— Hugo Chávez, President of Venezuela
