Book Launch “The New Communism” By Bob Avakian In Harlem

October 4, 2016

bob-avakian-and-cornel-west-in-harlemHarlem has a long history of Communism from W. A. DomingoMarcus Garvey, Humbert Harris to Williana “Liane” Jones Burroughs,  and many more. So its no surprise that On October 8, 2016, a major book launch of THE NEW COMMUNISM by Bob Avakian will take place at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Harlem, NY. Bob Avakian has been the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party since its founding in 1975, and is the architect of a new synthesis of communism.

The event will feature:

  • Cornel West. Dr. Cornel West stands out among intellectuals for his principle, as well as his work, and stands out as well for having engaged Bob Avakian in the historic 2014 Dialogue on Revolution and Religion.

Moderator Andy Zee

Calling the book “thought-provoking” and “sure to challenge stereotypes and conventional thinking,” publisher Insight Press says, “This new synthesis is a continuation of, but also represents a qualitative leap beyond, and in some important ways a break with, communist theory as it had been previously developed. Avakian has written this book in such a way as to make even complex theory accessible to a broad audience. In this book, he draws on his decades of work advancing the science of communism and his experience as a revolutionary communist leader.”


“This book is a masterwork and a master class—it is a living laboratory of the new synthesis of communism developed by Bob Avakian. It is also striking in its ability to combine high level revolutionary communist theory and modeling of revolutionary leadership with a visceral, colloquial and passionate style that will resonate with and be accessible to a wide variety of readers.”

Organizers of the event say, “This work is being released at a time of unspeakable and unnecessary suffering from one corner of the globe to the other—millions driven from their homes by unjust wars and environmental destruction, rampant violence and hatred against women, relentless murder and brutality against Black and Brown people by police in the U.S., vicious attacks on immigrants, and much more. It comes as well at a time of tremendous upheaval, with powerful resistance breaking out and people taking bold stands, and with many more being shaken into political life—and deeply disgusted—not only by the fascism of Trump but also the war crimes and lies of Clinton and the Democrats.”
