Book of the Week!


This week's Book of the Week is Baldwin's Harlem by Herb Boyd, published by Atria Books.

Baldwin's Harlem is an intimate portrait of the life and genius of one of our most brilliant literary minds: James Baldwin. It illuminates the writer's diverse views and impressions of the community that would remain a consistent presence in virtually all of his writing.

"Herb Boyd's study of Baldwin and Harlem features vivid literary portraits of a powerful writer in sometimes controversial dialogue with other major figures of his era. It also centers Baldwin's Harlem in a memorable, necessary way. Boyd's book is fascinating and authoritative on a subject that he knows well and writes about with insight and sympathy."
-- Arnold Rampersad, author of Ralph Ellison: A Biography

Baldwin's Harlem is a 272-page paperback $17.99 value for only$12 at Revolution Books this week only.



Phoneme Publishers of Delhi, India has republished Democracy: Can't We Do Better Than That? by Bob Avakian. This is a welcome event. It brings Avakian's text—the most comprehensive Marxist treatment of democracy—to a much wider audience in India and elsewhere. For this new printing, Raymond Lotta has written a special introduction.

Is democracy, or "true" democracy, the pinnacle of human social organization? Is the fundamental goal of socialist revolution the broadening and deepening of democratic institutions? Bob Avakian argues that there is something far more subversive of the status quo, something far more liberating, than democracy. Avakian's landmark work, originally published in 1986, takes on heightened relevance in today's world.

Revolution Books has a limited number of copies available for $20.
