The Cuban Five

I Will Die the Way I’ve Lived

By Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Rafael Cancel Miranda

The unbending dignity, truthfulness, and integrity of the five Cubans framed up by the US government and today serving draconian sentences in federal prisons has won them the admiration and respect of prominent figures around the world and thousands of their fellow prisoners as well. Here two who have known them in prison speak out. Also includes accounts of prison life and resistance by Gerardo Hernández and Ramón Labañino, and Elizabeth Palmeiro.

Fifteen paintings that graphically portray the 17 months Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Fernando González, and René González spent in the “hole” at the Miami Federal Detention Center after their 1998 arrests on trumped-up charges including espionage conspiracy. The integrity, creativity, and humor displayed by the Five strike a deep chord with working people in the US and elsewhere determined to resist the system of capitalist “justice.”

Speeches from the Burkina Faso Revolution 1983–87

Cosmetics, Fashions, and the Exploitation of Women

By Joseph Hansen, Evelyn Reed and Mary-Alice Waters

Sixty years ago, an article published in the socialist weekly the Militant sparked a lively debate on how the cosmetics and “fashion” industries play on the economic and emotional insecurities of women and youth to rake in profits.

Within the Revolution

From Santiago de Cuba and the Rebel Army to the Birth of the Federation of Cuban Women

By Vilma Espín, Asela de los Santos, and Yolanda Ferrer

Price: $20
Also available in Spanish

As working people in Cuba fought to bring down a bloody tyranny in the 1950s, the unprecedented integration of women in the ranks and leadership of the struggle was not an aberration. It was inseparably intertwined with the proletarian course of the leadership of the Cuban Revolution from the start.

Women in Cuba: The Making of a Revolution Within the Revolution is the story of that revolution and how it transformed the women and men who made it. The book was introduced at the 2012 Havana International Book Fair by a panel of speakers from Cuba and the US. Women and Revolution: The Living Example of the Cuban Revolution contains the presentations from that event.

U.S. Imperialism Has Lost the Cold War

By Jack Barnes

Price: $20
Also available in Spanish and Greek

In 1922 and 1923, V.I. Lenin, central leader of the world’s first socialist revolution, waged what was to be his last political battle. At stake was whether that revolution, and the international movement it led, would remain on the proletarian course that had brought workers and peasants to power in October 1917. Indispensable to understanding how the privileged caste led by Stalin arose and the consequences for the class struggle in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Price: $16
Also available in French, Spanish, Farsi, Swedish, Greek, Icelandic

U.S. Imperialism Has Lost the Cold War…. That’s what the Socialist Workers Party concluded in the wake of the collapse of regimes and parties across Eastern Europe and in the USSR that claimed to be Communist. Contrary to imperialism’s hopes, the working class in those countries has not been crushed. It remains an intractable obstacle to reimposing and stabilizing capitalist relations, one that will have to be confronted by the exploiters in class battles in a hot war.
