Waters maintains that while a socialist revolution in the United States is possible, it is not inevitable. That future depends on the American people. “Is Socialist Revolution in the US Possible?” is a definitive contribution to the growing discussion among working people everywhere who are looking for a way forward in the face of sharpening capitalist crisis and spreading wars. Fighting for a society only working people can create, it is our own capacities we will discover, not the rulers’ false image of us, an image that reflects their own guilt and fear. A thoughtful and thought-provoking read, “Is Socialist Revolution in the US Possible?” should be a part of every community, college, and university library Contemporary Political Science collection and supplemental studies reading list.
