Revolutionary reading guide - Chris Wright

Book in a fist

A massive reading guide divided up by topic and geographical area compiled by Chris Wright.

When I first began this list, I simply hoped to compile a useful guide to readings that would offer revolutionaries a broad range of materials. I also hoped that I could publish it in a way that other revolutionaries could contribute to, if they so chose. However, little did I suspect the changes I would go through politically in those years. I have since taken a critical approach to my past politics and while I consider myself a communist now, I cannot say that I am even vaguely the same kind of communist. I have since drawn the conclusion that Leninism and Trotskyism are bankrupt politically and philosophically and that they represent departures from Marx, not extensions. However, ignorance of their politics and ideas is nothing to be proud of, so I include a variety of classical Engelsian/Lasallean Marxists, from Kautsky to Lenin to Trotsky, for the sake of argument.

As such, my latest version of this guide has a distinctly different structure and includes many different types of Marxism and finally accords Anarchism its rightful place as a revolutionary tradition, rather than just another utopianism or "petty bourgeois individualism". I have also tried to help resurrect a subterranean tradition within Marxism that gets obscured by the power and prominence of Leninist organizations (whether Stalinist, Trotskyist, Maoist or others). This tradition includes people who may be more or less faithful, who may or may not have been activists, and whose ideas need not have been consistent. Just to give some sense, I include in this list Bloch, Adorno, Dunayevskaya, CLR James, Selma James, Luxemburg, Agnoli, Tronti, Debord, the early Lukacs, Korsch, Castoriadas, Pannekoek, Mattick, Gorter, Rubin, Serge, early Negri, and Pashukanis, to name some of the most prominent names. This tradition has its continuators today in people such as Werner Bonefeld, John Holloway, Sergio Bologna, Richard Gunn, Loren Goldner, the journal Capital & Class, Harry Cleaver, Kosmas Psykopedis, Mariarosa dalla Costa, Sylvia Federicci, and George Caffentzis among others, and so on. Such a listing necessarily has limits, as each person, publication and group makes necessarily partial contributions to the revolutionary future. However, this ‘tradition’ provides alternatives, reaching back into Marx, to the stultification of Leninism, Trotskyism, and academic Structuralist Marxism (cf. Althusser, Poulantzas), much less those lifeboats of capital in a sea of revolt: Stalinism, Maoism, Social Democracy. While I believe there is a discussion to be had with Lenin and Trotsky, if not necessarily post-Lenin Leninism and post-Trotsky Trotskyism, Stalinism, Maoism and Social Democracy deserve no such leniency. Gravediggers, maybe even grave-robbers, of the revolution, these ideologies may have sprung from the workers' movement, but only as internal counterrevolution, as the outcomes of the defeat of revolutions and revolutionary impulses. As such, you will not see Stalin gracing these pages because all you have to do is take Social Democracy's right-wing and mix it with Fascism's methods in power and you have all of Stalinism's intellectual capacities neatly bundled. Maoism is nothing other than a type of bourgeois nationalism, however radical, and I place it under that heading at the end of this guide for those who wish to read the writings of the enemy within.

Having said all of that, I still made this list as a resource for communists, whether Marxist or anarchist. Like all such attempts, my list does not cover everything of interest. Not by half. However, I think you will be hard-pressed to find a better compilation. Anyone interested in anarchism, Marx, Leninism, Trotskyism, libertarian or "Open" Marxism, the history of the international workers' movement, radical science and culture, a fairly comprehensive revolutionary approach to the history of the United States and more, will find this a useful guide. I have read much of what is on here, which is to say upwards of 15% of it. Much of it comes based on recommendations from people I respect, as well as simple use of bibliographies and footnotes from books. I hope you find my selection broad enough to engage your interests.

Now for some notes and provisos:

While this list is quite long, there are few primary sources outside of the working class movement. This list is necessarily incomplete and only meant to provide pro-revolutionaries with a guide to the knowledge necessary to function more effectively as pro-revolutionaries. This is not a guidebook for academics looking to finish that Doctorate. However, this does not mean that the list is not extensive; we simply were not interested in all of the academic works available. This list should also be useful as a reference guide when comrades are searching through libraries and bookstores, offering a wide selection of works to look for on many topics.

There are many works here that are not by Marxist writers or revolutionaries. This is partially the result of the limited knowledge of the people involved in the creation of this list. More importantly, it is the recognition of the fact that many of the best works available and useful to revolutionaries are not always written by Marxists. This is as it should be, since communists have always been and always should be primarily concerned with the practical and theoretical problems of the working class' struggle for emancipation. Therefore, many valuable works in science and history are the products of thorough and able non-Marxist authors. I listed some of the non-Marxist works presented here because sometimes we must engage and criticize our opponents, especially revolutionaries and "radicals" from anti- or quasi-Marxist backgrounds. We can also learn a lot from our opponents, who often focus on areas where we do not. I think this especially applies to Black Nationalism, Feminism and Third World Nationalism.

I hope that this list helps and I look forward to further contributions that will develop and round out this list. Many areas I have not touched upon (or, at best, very inadequately). There might also be those people who would disagree with some of the ways I have organized this list. I welcome criticism and suggestions.

I have also left out many individual articles of great importance, both from the great revolutionaries of the past and from present organizations and people (who have made many good and useful contributions). In light of this, I would like to recommend a few journals and newspapers and web sites whose articles are provocative and useful for maintaining a close watch on the world working class. These are:

News and Letters, Marxist-Humanism

Capital and Class (Conference of Socialist Economists)

Revolutionary History

Midnight Notes

Common Sense (Edinburgh Conference of Socialist Economists)


Radical Chains

Historical Materialism

Hegel by HyperText Home Page (Alan Freeman’s Homepage, excellent resource on value theory.) (Vast resources on the Majority world.)

As for the list, there are a few things to explain:

1. Any book marked by an asterisk (*) is one we consider essential reading on the topic and/or a good starter piece for new militants.

2. Where feasible, we have listed the works in some kind of an order of difficulty and political development.

3. In the U.S. History section, there is a breakdown of several categories: General, Class and Power, Labor, Native American, Women, African-American, and Chicano/Latino. I divided them between General books on a time period or topic, and books with a more narrow focus. The reason for the division of working class history into the labor movement and oppressed peoples is actually simple. The labor movement has largely denied entry to these groups, staying mostly white and male. But, because the bulk of specially oppressed people are working class, we have referred to "Labor History", as in the organized labor movement, not "Working Class History". Unlike some people, we don't see there being a "working class" that one can read as equal to "white males" necessitating a “labor-black alliance”.

4. Africa is the only continent or section broken down by regions, not by country. I simply did not have enough titles or knowledge of the continent to do a better job. As the section expands, that will change.

5. The section on the sciences is in many ways the most difficult to use. Where there are clear debates in a field on a particular topic (Creationism, Sociobiology, the politics of science, etc.), the books included should serve well. It is impossible, however, to provide a listing that will replace formal training in the sciences.

6. At the end of some titles there are abbreviations in parentheses, such as (CP). These are abbreviations of the names of organizations. (CP) - The Communist Party, usually from the country under which the title appears.

Thank you, enjoy and good reading, Comrades.
