Mehring Books is pleased to announce the publication of the new pamphlet Into the Maelstrom: The Invasion of Iraq and the Crisis of American Imperialism by David North, chairman of the International Editorial Board of the World Socialist Web Site.
The pamphlet contains two essays written by North immediately after the US invasion, analyzing its social and political causes and consequences. Also included as an introduction is the WSWS perspective by North and Bill Van Auken, “The Iraq War ten years on: A turning point for US imperialism.”
March 19, 2013 marked the 10th anniversary of the invasion, a criminal act taken in defiance of mass protests all over the world. Over the past decade, the American government has engaged in one military intervention after the next. Meanwhile, the former leaders of anti-war protests have integrated themselves into the imperialist framework through their support for the Obama administration.
The articles in this pamphlet provide a revolutionary socialist program and perspective for the resurgence of mass opposition to war, and its connection to the growth of working class struggles all over the world.
As a special promotion we are offering a sale bundle including Into the Maelstrom: The Invasion of Iraq and the Crisis of American Imperialism and Desert Slaughter: The Imperialist War Against Iraq (Statements of the Workers League, 1991), which assesses the lessons of the first Gulf War. Price $8.00 plus shipping and handling.
