Essays by Chris Harman, Duncan Hallas, Tony Cliff and Leon Trotsky
Socialists aim to change the world and have always sought to organise themselves as effectively as possible in order to achieve this goal. But what sort of organisation do we need? These essays show why we need something very different from reformist organisations like the Labor Party if we are to get real change. They also dispel the myths about democratic centralism and demonstrate there is an unbridgeable gap between the kind of socialist party Lenin built and the Stalinist despotism that replaced it.
