"Accessible, irreverent and entertaining, Bhaskar Sunkara has delivered a razor-sharp guide to socialism's history, transformative promise, and path to power. This book also serves as an irresistible invitation to join in building that power, and in shaping the radically democratic future that is our best hope in these make-or-break times." - Naomi Klein "From one of the brightest stars of the American left, essential reading for anyone who wants to build a new society based on people's needs, not profit for the elite." - Owen Jones, author of Chavs
