India: New Bengali language edition of Marxism in Today’s World

We publish below a new introduction by Peter Taaffe to his book ‘Marxism in Today’s World’ which will be published in Bengali, this year. This book gives explanations of some of the basic ideas of the Committee for a Workers’ International. It was originally the product of an interview with an Italian socialist in 2003. First published in English, Marxism in Today’s World has since been translated into many languages. An edition was published in India in 2007 but this is the first time it has been translated into Bengali. It will allow our ideas to be outlined to workers and youth in West Bengal in India and Bangladesh.
