Overview

Waters is a life-long Socialist activist and president of Pathfinder Press, a Socialist publishing company. This book is made up of two lectures that she gave in 2007 and 2009 in Caracas, Venezuela, at its international book fair. There is additional text by Norton Sandler, an activist and colleague of Waters, and Olympia Newton, who covered both speeches for the Militant, a Socialist newspaper based in New York. Inspired by Cuba's revolutionary past and persistence, Waters argues that not only can the United States experience a Socialist revolution but that it may simply be inevitable, given what she views as the country's unsustainable growth and the mounting level of discontent among the working class. Her 2007 speech is occasionally eerily prescient, given the current economic climate. In addition to addressing economics, she also speaks at length about the growing U.S. immigrant population and its relevance to the Socialist movement. Recommended for public libraries and for academic libraries as primary source material on U.S. Socialist movements.—Laura Torres, Arlington, MA
