Title should be "The Case for Change"
I was expecting (finally) some theoretical description of functioning socialism. Or perhaps a detailed comparison of socialism to capitalism ( in particular "state capitalism"). Within that context, find out exactly how socialism MIGHT avoid the pitfalls that capitalism has exhibited.
This expectation was unfounded and unfulfilled. Instead , the reader is presented with a rather thin recap of the current and historical class struggles anyone except the novice would already be familiar with. We are given only examples where socialism has failed with some debatable offerings as to why.
Anyone purchasing this book surely knows that change is needed and why. The author could have advised simply to (re)read Marx.
