Socialist World

Socialist Political Journal
The massive interest in socialist ideas has radically changed the political landscape in the U.S. As part of the growth of the left, Socialist Alternative also grew significantly in recent years and achieved national prominence with the election of Kshama Sawant as the first openly socialist councilmember in Seattle in 2013.

Our organization prides itself on the clarity of our analysis and program. But we also feel the need to step up our game. For this reason we present a political journal, Socialist World, initially coming out three times a year.
