THURSDAY EVENINGS AT REV BOOKS

October 2, Thursday, 7pmrnl
Discussions of sections from
BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS!

This week we will be screening and discussing the section of the talk entitled "We Need a Revolution to Overcome All Oppressive Divisions." This system cannot be reformed. The democracy that exists works exactly as it is supposed to work--as a cover and a form through which the capitalist system is maintained and enforced.


October 5, Sunday, 2:30-4pm
Got a Question?
Got an Observation?

Every Sunday 2:30 to 4pm, someone associated with the Revolutionary Communist Party USA will be at Revolution Books to answer your questions, learn from your experience, listen to your observations about revolution -- so we can be struggling and learning together.


October 9, Thursday, 7pmsassen
Saskia Sassen Discusses Her New Book

Expulsions: Brutality and Complexity in the Global Economy

Soaring income inequality and unemployment, expanding populations of the displaced and imprisoned, accelerating destruction of land and water bodies. According to Saskia Sassen, socioeconomic and environmental dislocations cannot be fully understood in the usual terms of poverty and injustice. They are more accurately understood as a type of "expulsion"--from professional livelihood, from living space, even from the very biosphere that makes life possible.

Saskia Sassen is Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology and co-chair of the Committee on Global Thought at Columbia University. Her book The Global City is widely acknowledged to be a landmark study of the political economy of cities in the age of globalization. Join us for this special author program.

Raymond Lotta, writer for Revolution newspaper-revcom.us, will host.

Book of the Week

otb

This week's Book of the Week is On the Brink: Israel and Palestine on the Eve of the 2014 Gaza Invasion by Alice Rothchild, published by Just World Books.

"In the chapter 'Walking with Ghosts' we visit the ruins of Lifta -- a thriving center of Palestinian commerce, community and culture, until it was one of the 650 or so Palestinian cities and towns wiped out by Zionist ethnic cleansing. We brave virulent Israeli tear gas and rubber bullets with Palestinians and their allies who attempt to wage peaceful protests. We experience the incessant humiliation of the most overt and obscene Apartheid-style humiliation to which Palestinians are subjected not only every waking hour, but even in late night and early morning raids on their communities and homes. And we confront the genocidal terminology ubiquitous in Israeli culture. (E.g., A 'clean area' is a term used by the Israeli military to describe areas where no Palestinians live.)"

"She insists on challenging readers to confront the reality that 'the ethnic cleansing of Palestine is an integral part of the history of the creation of the State of Israel, just as much as the history of Native Americans or African slaves is part of US history. There is no "dual narrative" here. The Nakba is not an alternative history.... It is a story that must be heard.' "
--from Alan Goodman's review in Revolution

On the Brink is a 168-page paperback $18.00 value available for only $12 at Revolution Books this week only.
