What you been reading this month?


Reading Revolution! Lenin in 1917 right now, which is a collection of Lenin’s writings throughout the eight months between the two revolutions.



I’m reading Politzer’s Fundamental Principles of Philosophy. Highly accessible and the chapters are very short. I’m at the end of part 1 now, which explains the history of idealism and materialism in a very comprehensive, complete way.

On The Correct Handling of Contradictions Among The People looks interesting. I also saw Mao wrote on the social classes in China (before the revolution) so that’s gonna be on my reading list too.


Yes, it’s an important text of Mao Zedong Thought, from what I understand.

Just finished Accumulation of Capital going to next read Lenin’s take with Imperialism.

Next idk what I’ll read, really, really leaning toward that Parenti Assassination of Caesar book before I look at more old school theory or maybe that How the World Works suggested to me.


How The World Works by Paul Cockshott is a little overrated, but it’s something to get through if you have the time.

For discussing books by socialists or about socialism.


    1. Books from all tendencies are allowed. Please don’t downvote something just because it’s from somebody that you dislike.
    2. However, the general rule against sectarianism still applies here. A writing that takes a potshot at others every now and then is acceptable. Outright polemics dedicated to denouncing other tendencies belong elsewhere.
    3. No linking to online book stores.
    4. No memes or videos.
