On August 23rd, J. Moufawad-Paul will be in Ottawa to attend the launch of his book, The Communist Necessity. A sleek and punchy treatise about the problems of social movementism and the need for a “new return” to a revolutionary communist tradition, The Communist Necessity is a philosophical intervention that forces the reader to think through the problems presented by contemporary capitalism that are not answered by mainstream left-wing theories of organization and strategy inherited from the anti-globalization movement.

According to Robert Biel, author of The Entropy of Capitalism, Moufawad-Paul’s book is “important and timely” and “profoundly reconnects with the histories and tradition of communism and places today’s struggles within that context.”

Join Ottawa supporters of the Revolutionary Communist Party of Canada at the Avant Garde (135 1/2 Besserer St.) on August 23rd at 5:30 pm as they launch The Communist Necessity and host the author. Following a presentation and discussion of the book, there will be a meet-and-greet where the author will be present to answer any further questions.

The Communist Necessity is published by Kersplebedeb. To order it online: www.leftwingbooks.net. In Montréal, pick up your copy at the Maison Norman Bethune bookstore.
