16 watercolors for 16 years of unjust imprisonment

The jury of millions has spoken! The Cuban Five are free!

By Antonio Guerrero

Bilingual edition: English and Spanish

List Price: $15
This portrait of 16 years of struggle couldn’t be more timely, with the release from US prisons of Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, and Antonio Guerrero, joining Fernando González and René González on Cuban soil. The five revolutionaries were framed up in 1998 on "conspiracy" charges. Their alleged crimes? Gathering information on Cuban American groups that have long carried out murderous attacks on the Cuban Revolution and its supporters.

Guerrero’s 16 watercolors, along with his words and those of his four compañeros, convey the dignity, strength, humanity—and humor—of these unbowed soldiers, who’ve become the face of the Cuban Revolution the world over. Their freedom was won by a hard-fought international campaign. The jury of millions has spoken. The Cuban Five are free

    Cosmetics, Fashions, and the Exploitation of Women
    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. Today that exchange, contained in this book, a Marxist classic, offers an introduction to the origin of women’s oppression and the struggle for liberation.

    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.

    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.
