GUIDE TO INTRODUCTORY READINGS FOR NEW MEMBERS

If you are new to Marxism and the communist party this page aims to give you a political introduction and a chance to set yourself some longer term goals, to develop your understanding of capitalism and socialism. Take all the time you need. It may help though if you go through each section one by one.  Don’t feel you have to read everything. Make brief notes of key points – including questions. You can go over these later – preferably in group discussion in your branch.
