Politics of Britain's Economic Crisis

by John Foster, published by the Economic Committee of the Communist Party. Third edition.

This pamphlet was first published in May 2008—nine months after the onset of the financial problems sparked by the US subprime crisis and the failure of Northern Rock but four months before the crisis had reached its acute stage with the failure of Lehman Brothers and the threat of bankruptcy across the entire sector. The consequent financial earthquake had twin epicentres in New York and London and triggered smaller but dramatic collapses in Ireland, Iceland, Belgium and the Netherlands. A serious and deepening world recession resulted.

The EU: For the Monopolies, Against the People

The EU: for the monopolies against the peopleby John Foster, published by the EU & Popular Sovereignty Advisory of the Communist Party. Second Edition ISBN 978-1-908315-00-7 

John Foster charts the formation and development of the European Union into its present day incarnation as a body which entrenches the interests of monopoly capital and pursues unparalleled assaults on workers' rights, wages and conditions; the privatisation and marketisation of public services; and rides roughshod over hard fought for democratic rights. The Labour movement has for too long ignored the EU. In the interests of our democratic rights, and of working people across Europe and beyond, it must now face up to the reality that the EU is anti-democratic and anti-working class. Our future depends on it.

The CP 1920-2010 - 90 years in struggle

Robert Griffiths and Ben Stevenson pack 90 years of rich history into this commemorative pamphlet. From the General Strike to the People's March for Jobs; the fight against fascism in the 1930s & 40s to the creation of CND and the struggle for peace; the 1926 general strike to the 84-85 miners' strike.

This commemorative pamphlet not only charts the trial and tribulations of the Communist Party but demonstrates how integral the Party is to any serious understanding of class struggle in the 20th and 21st Centuries. This pamphlet does not shirk its responsibility in providing a critical analysis to the role of the Communist Party but unlike others it also celebrates and acknowledges the contribution that Communists have made to British working class politics.

Women & Class - Third Edition

Women   Class    49103d48ab7eaby Mary Davis, published by the Political Committee of the Communist Party

THE OPPRESSION of women is consistently denied or trivialised by the mass media and institutions of the state. On the left, there is a tendency to subsume women’s issues within the general class struggle, or to relegate them to a secondary position. The attitude is too often one of ‘socialism will sort it all out’. In the meantime, any specific concentration on women’s issues is seen as diversionary – a deviation from the site of the real struggle.

Mary Davis charts the origin and history of women's oppression, puts forward the marxist analysis, debunks 'rival' theories and puts forward the case for placing the liberation of women at the heart of the class struggle for socialism.
