by Jacobin editor Bhaskar Sunkara

is now in paperback. Get your copy here, and other books, for just $10.

In recent years, more and more Americans are comfortable with the language of democratic socialism. But what, exactly, is socialism? And what would a socialist system in America look like?

Bhaskar Sunkara explores socialism’s history since the mid-1800s and presents a vision for its future. The Socialist Manifesto is now out in a 288-page paperback edition.

“Thanks to the dysfunctionality of contemporary capitalism, ’socialism’ has reentered the American political vocabulary, especially among the young. In The Socialist Manifesto, Bhaskar Sunkara gives us a lively account of socialism’s history and current meanings, and makes the case for a genuine alternative to our deeply unequal social and political order.”

—Eric Foner, Columbia University
