Book Launch: Socialist Register 2020: Beyond Market Dystopia, New Ways of Living

Wednesday, January 22 / 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm EST

We warmly welcome you to join us for the Toronto book launch of Socialist Register 2020 – Beyond Market Dystopia: New Ways of Living (edited by Leo Panitch and Greg Albo).

Connecting with and going beyond classical socialist themes, this volume of the Socialist Register combines analysis of the severe contradictions of neoliberal capitalism with plans for new strategic, programmatic, manifesto-oriented directions for alternative ways of living. Fourteen original essays locate such utopian visions and struggles in the dystopian present.

Doors open for food and drink at 6:30pm, and presentations begin at 7:30pm, with:

Amy Bartholomew: Beyond the ‘barbed-wire labyrinth’: migrant spaces of radical democracy

Michelle Chen: A new world of workers: confronting the gig economy

Stephen Maher and Sam Gindin: Class politics, socialist policies, capitalist constraints

Chaired by Leo Panitch and Greg Albo.
