Which Road? (1991)
Without a Communist Party the working class can never liberate itself. And without a communist programme there can be no genuine Communist Party. The roots of the collapse of the bureaucratic socialist states of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union can be seen in those parties' abandonment of Marxism. This was not the fault of one person, or the break-down in collective intellect. The programmes of 'official communism' reflected - were designed to serve - those in the workers' movement who had no interest in revolution. In this book Jack Conrad deals with the reformist programmes of various strands of opportunism in Britain.
