Socialism by Michael Harrington( Book )

68 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 3,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this major new work, one of America's leading thinkers of the democratic Left argues convincingly that socialist renewal is the only hope for progress and freedom in the twenty-first century. A new civilization is already in the making, Harrington maintains, one of increasing automation and unprecedented international interdependence. Old frontiers are crumbling around the world as huge multinational companies, often in collaboration with their respective governments, already engage in global planning. The costs of this transformation are borne not only by the Third World but also by the new poor and precarious middle classes of the co-called advanced nations. Tracing two centuries of socialist history, Harrington shows that despite all its flaws and failures, the basic principles are sound. Because it places human values before doctrinaire political or blindly monetary considerations, it may also well be, Harrington says, our only hope for the future. - Jacket flap
