Description

"Democracy is the road to socialism." --Karl Marx

Socialism was one of the formative forces of the modern world, and its complex history stretches back nearly three centuries. But what, exactly, does socialism mean? This informative and impartial guide takes you through socialism's origins to its contemporary interpretations, covering:

  • Socialism's founders, including Sir Thomas More, Karl Marx, and Friedrich Engels
  • Types of socialism, such as Maoism, syndicalism, communism, and green socialism
  • Basic constructs and beliefs, and current misconceptions
  • Socialism's impact on America, including the Red Scare, the Catholic Worker Movement, and the Cold War
Featuring an unbiased but comprehensive view of this controversial theory, The Everything Guide to Understanding Socialism is the ultimate resource if you want to learn more about an age-old concept turned modern-day political firestorm.
