THE GROWING WRATH
What is going wrong? Why are things getting worse? Why can we afford less? Why are we producing less? Are we living beyond our means?
CAPITALISM – CLASS AND CRISIS
Who has to make sacrifices and why? Why are there people unemployed? Who causes economic crisis? Can we afford rich people?
WHAT WOULD YOU PUT IN ITS PLACE?
What is socialism? Will it work? What about human nature? Will we all be like battery hens?

On how the Labour Party set out on the parliamentary road to socialism – and found it led in the opposite direction.
KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS: THE TRADE UNION LEADERS
Can our trade union leaders lead us to a better world? Why are they always so distant from us? Why do they support wage freezes and cuts?
WHAT ABOUT RUSSIA?
Is Russia socialist? Was the Russian revolution socialist? How was the revolution lost? Can you have socialism in one country? Is the Communist Party travelling towards socialism?
THE CHALLENGE OF THE RANK AND FILE
Can the workers make a revolution? Aren’t they backward and apathetic?
WANTED – A NEW SOCIALIST PARTY
Why is it wanted? What does it do? Doesn’t it lead to more bureaucracy? What socialist grouping can build a real socialist party? Where and how do you join?
