Capitalism on a Ventilator
The Impact of COVID-19 in China & the U.S.
Lee Siu Hin, Sara Flounders, Carlos Martinez, Monica Moorehead, Kevin Zeese, Ajamu Baraka, Deirdre Griswold, Mumia Abu Jamal, Vijay Prashad, Margaret Kimberley - 2020-09-24
Goodreads Rating
Capitalism on a Ventilator sheds light on the dangers of relying on profits and competition in the face of a global pandemic. Instead of heeding warnings and promoting cooperation, the U.S. focused on racist propaganda, resulting in tens of thousands of COVID-19 deaths - the highest in the world. Socialist countries, Cuba and Vietnam, using people's mobilizations, were better prepared and have some of the lowest death rates. This anthology by social justice activists explores how we can learn from their successes.

Washington Bullets is a book that dives into the history of US imperialism and the countless ways it has shattered hope around the world. Written in the best traditions of Marxist journalism and history-writing, it tells fluid and readable stories that never lose sight of the larger political point. Despite focusing on the assassinations of socialists and Marxists throughout the Third World, the book is ultimately about possibilities and hope, highlighting heroes such as Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso who dared to invent the future.
