  • Stalin and Stalinism - The lie that the former USSR was “really existing socialism” remains a potent weapon against the working class. This pamphlet not only examines the origins of the regime that emerged from the defeat of the October Revolution but also explains the motivations of Stalinism. - £1
  • Spain 1934-9: From Working Class Struggle to Imperialist War - Reprint of key CWO articles long out of print and translations of contemporary documents from the Italian Left in exile - £3
  • Sylvia Pankhurst's Revolutionary Years - Pankhurst’s time in the East End (1912-24) spanned some of the most traumatic years of capitalism’s existence - 50p
  • South Africa's New Turmoil - Marikana and the ANC's Century of Service to Capitalism - £2
  • Holocaust and Hiroshima - Examines how the nature of imperialist warfare comes to inflict mass murder on the world through an examination of these seminal events - 50p
  • Capitalism and the Environment - Translated from Prometeo, these articles by Mauro Stefanini were written some time ago but show that our late comrade was ahead of his time in analysing the unsustainability of capitalist production - £1
  • 1921: Beginning of the Counter-Revolution? - Kronstadt, adoption of the NEP, banning of factions, the failure of the March Action in Germany and the adoption of the united front policy, made 1921 a highly significant year in the degeneration of both the Russian and international revolution - £1
  • Bordiga Beyond the Myth - The originality and importance of this volume – in a expanded edition including new documents and editorial notes, from the two previous editions: 1971 and 1977 – mainly lies in the documents that throw permanent light on the distinctive development and perspectives of the “Italian Left” over decades (among the most tragic in modern history) in the history of international communism - £9
  • Gramsci between Marxism and Idealism - The present volume is the product of Damen’s considerations on Gramsci’s shortcomings as an analytical and practical Marxist which he evidently wrote over a period of years. The structure is loose because he died before he completed it and the draft chapters were only discovered posthumously and eventually published in 1982 - £7.50

Out of Print

  • Socialism or Barbarism - An Introduction to the Politics of the Communist Workers’ Organisation
  • Platform of Factory Groups - In the 1980s the CWO intended to create factory groups which would carry the lessons of past struggles into future ones, oppose the unions, as well as propagandise for communism. Today, adapting to the new composition of the proletariat, it makes more sense to talk of workplace and territorial groups
  • South Africa: Class War not Race War - Selection of articles written over 15 years starting in 1980. These years saw the growth of the political fight against the apartheid regime
  • 1917: Party, Class and Soviets in the October Revolution - The Russian Revolution of October 1917 was unique. It was the only time in history when workers themselves took over the running of the state in a conscious attempt to build socialism. The fact that it eventually failed does not diminish its power to inspire
  • The Year 1956 - Articles which our comrades in the Internationalist Communist Party (Battaglia Comunista) published during and after the events in Hungary and Poland in 1956
  • Onorato Damen - A collection of articles by and about Onorato Damen
