      Hi All

      I just thought I'd pass on to the list the following interesting
      discussions of socialism in the c 21st.

      1. There is a new book from ZNet people "Economic Justice and
      Democracy: From Competition to Cooperation" (Routledge 2005.) One of
      the authors is interviewed on ZNet at

      Hahnel's latest book is only one of a number of interesting
      new books about socialism, and there is also what I consider
      an old classic, Paul C. and Allin Cottrell's "Towards a New
      Socialism", which is available on the web at

        Dear comrads
        is it possible to download part or all of thsi book so tha we can analyse its contents in  a critical fashion
        a priori the article does not improve the situation we find ourselves in ie the worsoning of the capitalist world the ecological systems of the world
        it does not seem to be any more optimistic or give any real direction politically or otherwise
        nothign about justice of oppressed people
        where there i sinjustice there is struggle
        its not all economics
        it seems that the book wishes to be seen as a prescription or recipe for solving and explaining why we (progressives) are worst off now than at the beginning o f the century
        it seems to use new vocabulary and I feel it is hiding its impotence
        what about using a dictionary for us old marxists and translating some of th eowrds in classic marxist terminology
        the french have aptly summarised life in saying that struggle is the essence of life adn is what matters l elan c~est tout
        and ce qui est simple est faux ce ui est complique est incomprehensible
        best wishes mr chen
