We are continuing a study group on The Democrats: A Critical History by Lance Selfa. The book takes a detailed look at the history of the Democratic Party, including its role in carrying out imperialism and sustaining capitalism in the U.S. It also examines the history of efforts to “take over” the party and the prospects for a left that wants to build an independent alternative. This is a must-read for the election season!
This session of the study group will cover Chapters 7, 8, and the Conclusion of the updated edition, titled “Can the Left Take Over the Democratic Party?”, “Why is There No Alternative?” and “Is the Lesser Evil Good Enough?”
Copies of the book will be available at our meetings or they can be purchased from Haymarket Books online.
