On October 23, the Political Revolution Reading Group will discuss Samir Aminís 2016 assessment of the impact of the 1917 Soviet revolution, Russia and the Long Transition from Capitalism to Socialism . Amin chronicles the economic, geographic, and political conditions that created the revolution, and discusses its historic successes, fatal shortcomings, and the prospects for moving forward from here. Revolutionaries cannot claim to be leaders if we fail to study the past, and learn the lessons that those who came before us gave their lives to learn. Join us!
Russia and the Long Transition to Socialism is published by Monthly Review Press and is 134 pages long. The group will meet from 7 to 9 pm Monday, October 23 at the San Jose Peace and Justice Center.
