This collection is a valuable reference for workers, youth, and others who want to fight against the ravages capitalism imposes on working people every day. It makes easily accessible the wealth of news and analysis featured in the Militant over the entire last year, so readers can draw lessons from workers' struggles and revolutionary movements worldwide.
Last year Militant correspondents traveled to South Africa before and after the first-ever nonracial, democratic elections there; they wrote about how workers and farmers began seizing the political space they have won to bring down apartheid and advance their interests.
Reporters made several trips to Cuba, providing in-depth coverage on how the working class there is confronting the "special period" of economic challenges. Militant correspondents traveled there immediately after the "rafters crisis" in August, as hundreds of thousands of Cuban workers and youth mobilized against Washington's stepped-up provocations. The socialist weekly also carried extensive coverage of actions in the United States and elsewhere in defense of Cuba's sovereignty and the socialist revolution.
Over the course of the year the Militant ran several speeches by Fidel Castro, Nelson Mandela, and other leaders of the Cuban and South African revolutions.
