Toward a New Socialism offers a critical analysis of capitalism's failings and the imminent need for socialism as an alternative form of government. This book demonstrates that capitalism is destructive and limiting to the many ongoing campaigns to increase freedom, equality, and security. Dr. Richard Schmitt joins with Dr. Anatole Anton to compile a volume of essays exploring the benefits and consequences of a socialist system as an avenue of increased human solidarity and ethical principle. The essays offer a new definition of socialism by investigating the theories and principles of socialism, its influence on social institutions, and its role in work dynamics. Raising important and unavoidable questions for contemporary society, Toward a New Socialism is a vital resource for scholars of political theory and the globalization movement, as well as a necessary read for every citizen under capitalism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Intelligent and well-written essays filled with radical visions and sensible, humane policy proposals. This book will be extremely valuable for readers who think we can do better than the present system-and even more important for those who think we can't. -- Roger S. Gottlieb, author of A Greener Faith: Religious Environmentalism and our Planet's Future
Recommended. -- H.G. Reid, University of Kentucky * CHOICE *
...the essays are first class- well written, well argued, and highly engaging....I would certainly recommend the book... * Political Studies Review *
inspiring and hopeful.... It is an important contribution to socialist thought... * Against the Current, March 2009 *
I know of no other work remotely comparable to this anthology. The collection should make a major contribution to public debates regarding the feasibility and desirability of a more democratic alternative to global capitalism. The comprehensiveness of the issues considered also sets it apart. And the authors collected here form a veritable 'who's who' of leading socialist philosophers working in the U.S. today. Without question this is the single best collection of writings by contemporary U.S. socialist philosophers available. -- Tony Smith, Iowa State University
