An Independent Socialist Magazine and Press

Announcing this online discussion group from our friends at essential discussions:

Essential reading from MR Press author Michael A. Lebowitz, Professor Emeritus of Economics at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada

Beyond CAPITAL: Marx’s Political Economy of the Working Class (2003 Palgrave Macmillan)
Winner of the Isaac and Tamara Deutscher Memorial Prize 2004

Few authors provide the clarity of vision and practical lessons offered by Michael A. Lebowitz. His writings give us both strategic and tactical applications that will be of value to everyone interested in building a viable alternative to the dangerous and destructive capital system. Lebowitz demonstrates the forms of struggle that allow the reader to understand the importance of moving beyond capital with clarity and practicality. The development of worker control, community control, and self-management by the 99% will strengthen the necessary subjective and objective power of the people and start the process of building socialism in our time.

In mid-January 2012 essential discussions will start on-line discussions of this important work by Michael A. Lebowitz. There will also be a discussion group meeting in the Boston area. If you are interested in participating in these discussions, contact essential discussions at 617-731-8725 or
