Workers' Liberty Bookshop
Welcome to the bookshop page for the Alliance for Workers' Liberty website.
In association with amazon.co.uk, we are seeking out books we think that socialists should read, and, thanks to amazon, we're selling almost all of them at a discount. What's more, if you buy your books through this facility you'll be helping to raise funds for the AWL too.
On these pages you can find:
Socialism can only triumph when the working class engages with the ideas of revolution, broadens them, develops them and implements them.
A socialist movement which does not treasure ideas, encourage debate and foster discussion is worthless to the working class. There's a huge heritage of writings, videos and music which can play a part developing our understanding about the world, and the task we set ourselves in seeking to change it.
The books we recommend here are not all by socialists, they do not all claim to be about socialism, and some may be avowedly anti-socialist. But we can use them to challenge our own ideas and through that process develop our ability to argue for socialism.
We are very keen to receive suggestions for books, music or films which visitors to the site think should be included in our selections. If there's a film , recording or a book which you found particularly inspiring, or educational, or otherwise useful in the struggle for socialism, please let us know. We'll share it with our other visitors.
As this part of the Workers' Liberty website develops, we will include a section for readers' comments on the various items we recommend, to encourage discussion about the ideas that are raised.
All the items listed on these pages are being sold by amazon.co.uk, and not by us. This includes items such as The Fate of the Russian Revolution, which are produced by the AWL. If you want to purchase these items directly from the AWL, which may be cheaper, and certainly results in more of your money going to the AWL, you have two choices: if you can pay in US$ then you can buy them online from our publications page. If you cannot pay in US$ then we can only take payment by post. See the publications page for more details.
