About the Book: The World after the Collapse of the Soviet Union From the highly acclaimed novelist, script editor, journalist and writer William Ash, a clear, rooted, account of the importance of socialist ideas within the Marxist tradition. Ash, a decorated war hero and leading trade unionist and thinker, has written something of great importance to a new generation of those fighting for peace and progress. Anti globalization protesters, trade unionists and genuinely worried workers will find this book a major wake up call to the simple, yet increasingly relevant concepts that underpin socialism. The author considers values, rights, obligations and alienation and social change and shows how the modern ideas of workers, concentrated into Marxism, have enhanced the best thought of the past and offer us something powerful today About the Author: Randhir Singh Randhir Singh, a distinguished teacher and former Professor of Political Theory, University of Delhi, is the author of Reason, Revolution and Political Theory; Five Lectures in Marxist Mode; Marxism, Socialism, Indian Politics-A View from the Left; Contemporary Ecological Crisis-A Marxist View; Indian Politics Today-An Argument for Socialism-Oriented Path of Development and Struggle for Socialism-Some Issues.
