Recommended: Ernest Mandel's "From class society to Communism"

Just finished Ernest Mandel's 1977 book From class society to Communism: an introduction to Marxism last night.

No time do full review at the moment, but it's a wonderfully clear introduction that bears a refresher reading again every so often to keep the big picture of scientific socialism in mind.

It's out of print.

A Farewell to Grant Dunne – Worker-Warrior: speech by Farrell Dobbs

From this issue:

Grant Dunne 1894-1941

I was listening to some audio recordings today of Farrell Dobbs. They covered the 1934-1941 Minneapolis Teamster struggles.  He mentioned this article specifically when talking about the 1941 Smith Act case, and recommended his audience look it up.
