Socialism

We have an extensive stock of socialist titles, please come by the shop and see for yourself!

"Modern Socialism is, in its essence, the direct product of the recognition, on the one hand, of the class antagonisms existing in the society of today between proprietors and non-proprietors, between capitalists and wage-workers; on the other hand, of the anarchy existing in production"

Frederick Engels Socialism: Utopian and Scientific (1880)
