New from Wellred USA Reformism or Revolution: Marxism and Socialism of the 21st Century. A Reply to Heinz Dieterich. By Alan Woods. (463 pages)

However, some have concluded that the "old" ideas of Marxism are no longer valid and that it is necessary to invent a completely new and original theory of "Socialism of the 21st Century." This book is a reply to that view - expressed by Heinz Dieterich among others - and a defense of the fundamental ideas of Marxism and scientific socialism against these revisionist arguments.
