Pamphlets

From each according to their means

taxation pamphlet The economics commission of the CP has produced this hard hitting discussion pmaphlet on the esssential tax reforms which should be featured in a left progressive programme, including: radical proposals to tackle tax evasion; restoring fair rates of corporation tax; introducing an innovative alternative to existing property and council taxes with one based on the actual value of land; and the introduction of an annual wealth tax aimed at the super-rich. It's a critical and comprehensive contribution to an often neglected incredibly topical issue, a must buy for any labour movement activist.

New Scramble for Africa

Africa scramble

ISBN 978-1-908315-07-6. International Commission of the CP. £2/£3 plus p&p

This pamphlet outlines and anlyses the accelerating scramble by major imperialist countries for control of natural resources and markets across the African continent. Much broader and more contemporary in scope than the previous pamphlet published by the CP in 2009 which dealt with the legacy and current role of British imperialism on the continent, it looks in detail at EU, US, French and British investment; the role of AfriCom and US & NATO's military objectives; the role of China; and contemporary political developments and movements of resistance in Southern and Central Africa.

OH13: World War 1

Our History 13: WW1

ISBN 978-1-908315-25-0 £1.50 (+ p&p)

John Ellison outlines the causes, consequences and the struggles against the unprecedented level of human slaughter in the trenches of the First World War. It serves as a welcome antidote to the triumphalism or consternation expressed by commemorative events thus far. 

UKIP and the EU

UKiPThe United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) grew out of the all-party Anti-Federalist League in 1993. Its founding leader, academic Alan Sked, resigned from UKIP after the 1997 General Election because, he claimed, others in the leadership were 'racist and have been infected by the far right'.

Here, Robert Griffiths, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Britain, provides a critical analysis of UKIPs role, policies and rising popularity.
