"These lively conversations between Bob Avakian and Bill Martin probe a wide range of issues: the place of ethics in politics; the Maoist experience in China; sustainable agriculture and today's lopsided economic development; the post-9/11 agenda of the U.S. ruling class; Marxism and homosexuality; secularism and religion; and animal rights. A major theme running through this dialogue is the relationship between materialism and ethics."--Jacket

4 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bringing a revolutionary communist voice to the current discourse about god, atheism, and morality, this treatise demystifies religious belief and examines how, even in its most progressive interpretations, religion stands in the way of the emancipation of humanity. Addressing numerous questions—such as Is believing in gods actually harmful? How has Christianity served for centuries as an ideology of conquest and subjugation? Why is the "Bible Belt" in the U.S. also the "lynching belt?" and Why is patriarchy and the oppression of women foundational to so many religions?—this critique takes issue with long-established traditions and suggests the necessity to fully rupture with all forms of superstition and embrace a truly scientific approach to understanding and transforming reality. Bringing a unique revolutinary communist voice to the current discourse about god, atheism and morality, Avakian demystifies religious belief and examines how, even in his most progressive interpretations, religion stands in teh way fo the emancipation of humanity"--from publisher's description

From Ike to Mao and beyond : my journey from mainstream America to revolutionary communist : a memoir by Bob Avakian( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bob Avakian has written a memoir containing three unique but interwoven stories. The first tells of a white middle-class kid growing up in 1950s America who goes to an integrated high school and has his world turned around; the second of a young man who overcomes a near-fatal disease and jumps with both feet into the heady swirl of Berkeley in the sixties; and the third of a radical activist who matures into a tempered revolutionary communist leader. If you think about the past or if you urgently care about the future ... if you want to hear a unique voice of utter realism and deep humanity ... and if you dare to have your assumptions challenged and your stereotypes overturned ... then take a look at this book.--From publisher description
Birds Cannot Give Birth to Crocodiles, But Humanity Can Soar Beyond the Horizon by Bob Avakian( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes the case for why humanity needs a communist revolution and deeply explores the means for actually bringing about such a liberating revolution. In this two-part work (Part 1 Revolution and the State" and Part 2 Building the Movement for Revolution"), Bob Avakian examines the contradictory dynamics of historical development in human society and the possible pathways of change and discusses the scientific methods and means for realizing the "Impossible Dream" of a viable and radically different world, one where humanity can soar beyond social relations characterized by domination
