Socialism and Democracy is looking for someone to review:



By Zillah Eisenstein, Monthly Review Press, 2019.


Publisher's Blurb:

In this vibrant,

politically personal essay, Zillah Eisenstein asks us to consider what

it would mean to thread "socialism" to feminism; then, what it would

mean to thread "abolitionism" to socialist feminism. Finally, she asks

all of us to consider what it would mean to

risk everything to abolish white supremacy. 

If we are to create a revolution that is totally liberatory,

we need to pool together in a new working class, building a radical

movement made of movements. Eisenstein gathers almost half a century of

her antiracist socialist feminist work, and asks us not to be limited by

reforms, but to radicalize each other on differing fronts. 

The genius force demanding that we abolish white supremacy can also

create a new "we" for all of us--a humanity universally accepting of our

complexities and differences. We are in uncharted waters, but that is

exactly where we need to be.
