Many people around the world and in the U.S. itself - including many on the left - consider the U.S. to be one reactionary bloc, devoid of class struggle or revolutionary potential. In Marxism and the U.S.A., Alan Woods attempts to dispel these misconceptions, draw on the marvelous traditions of struggle throughout U.S. history, and inspire those new to the ideas of Marxism to learn more - and get involved.
Providing one example after another, he shows how the ideas of socialism and communism are not recent, "foreign" importations, but have deep roots in the American tradition itself. He also debunks many of the common misconceptions Americans have about socialism, taking up the question of socialism and religion, freedom vs. dictatorship, an explanation of what happened in the Soviet Union and more.
