The ABCs of Socialism has just been reprinted. Get a copy for only $5.

Packed with great essays and dozens of illustrations by Phil Wrigglesworth, The ABCs of Socialism is a perfect primer on socialist thought.

Over the past year, we’ve had more conversations about socialism with friends and strangers alike than in the last decade. Jacobin’s subscriber rolls have increased by hundreds every week, and our inbox is flooded with emails asking basic definitional questions about socialism.

We don’t have all the answers, but this book was made to help tackle some of them.
