Discussion Circle – Democracy and Revolution by George Novack

Where did democracy come from, and where is it going? Is today’s U.S. electoral system the best we can expect? This insightful book traces democracy’s development through 2,500 years of class struggle in which democracy ”was everywhere the offspring of revolution.” It concludes with a vision of the vastly broader democracy that will be one of the most profound benefits of the achievement of socialism.

This discussion group will be held at FSP National Office, address and travel information are above.
