Fantastic Reality (E-book) By Jack Conrad
eBook (PDF): $9.27
Religion, as defined by Marxism, is fantastic reality. Fantastic, not in the trite sense that the claims religion makes about existence are verifiably untrue, unreal or baseless, but in the sense... More > that nature and society are reflected in exaggerated form, as leaping shadows, as symbols or inversions. So religion should not be dismissed as mere false consciousness. Religion reflects something of the real; but, as Jack Conrad's book shows, there is even more to it than that. Religious ideas are not only determined by reality; they can themselves become materially effective. The ideas people have in their heads - especially when mediated through institutions such as churches, mosques and temples - no matter how wrapped up in the godly and seemingly unrelated to the corporeal world, impact on their surroundings.< Less

No one anticipated in 1958 that in the midst of a remarkable prosperity, Cuba would fall into Communism. It seemed impossible that an island 90 miles from the US, the most powerful Capitalistic... More > country in the planet, could turn Communist. Yet in two years it happened, at the cost of hundreds of lives, thousands of exiles, the eradication of free press, freedom of speech, private education, freedom of worship and private property. Now, everything belonged to the government, all Cubans had to ask permission to travel abroad, if they left, they could not return. The government decided what foods they could eat, where they had to live, what professions they could practice and what jobs were open to them. This book presents the history of how it happened, how it got started and the deceit and the treachery that made it possible. Cuba has not recovered its lost freedoms after 60 plus years of Communism... and probably never will. Great lesson for anyone sympathetic with Marxism or the radical left.< Less

Johannes Wilm, an organizer and activist from Oslo, Norway, goes off to live in and study Douglas, AZ, a border town to Mexico, for half a year. At first sight, Douglas looks like nothing but a run... More > down company town - after the Phelps Dodge smelter left in the 1980s. Interestingly though, Wilm discovers that old modes of social stratification disappeared together with the jobs. This book has to be seen as a tribute to the progressive sides of the lumpenproletariat. "This is a well written, experience-near ethnography of marginality in every sense of the word: Douglas is literally on the margins between the USA and Mexico, it is geographically marginal, economically marginal and culturally marginal in the US context. Wilm weaves a convincing and compelling picture of the precarious, reckless and often paradoxical lives led by people in Douglas." —Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Professor of Social Anthropology (Oslo/Amsterdam)< Less

Capital: A Critique of Political Economy, Vol. II. - The Process of Circulation of Capital By Karl Marx & Frederick Engels
eBook (PDF): $11.79
Capital, Volume II, subtitled The Process of Circulation of Capital, was prepared by Friedrich Engels from notes left by Karl Marx and published in 1885. In Volume II, the main ideas behind the... More > marketplace are to be found: how value and surplus-value are realized. Its dramatis personae are not so much the worker and the industrialist (as in Volume I), but rather the money owner (and money lender), the wholesale merchant, the trader and the entrepreneur or functioning capitalist. Moreover, workers appear in Volume II, essentially as buyers of consumer goods and therefore as sellers of the commodity labour power, rather than producers of value and surplus-value — though this latter quality, established in Volume I, remains the solid foundation on which the whole of the unfolding analysis is based. Reading Volume II is of monumental significance to understanding the theoretical construction of Marx's whole argument.< Less
