Revolution Books lost its lease and closed last November.  Humanity Needs Revolution and Revolution Books Needs YOU to re-open the bookstore as the bookstore about the world and for a radically different world.

What will people find at Revolution Books? Books. Films. Talks. Dialogue. An ethos of cooperative relations and community. A movement for revolution and theory that guides it. But more, what makes Revolution Books unique? Nothing less than revolution-and a scientific way to know and change the whole world, an approach that goes hand in hand with a poetic spirit; a critical spirit of inquiry and debate - of going for the truth; the liberating joy of struggle and the seriousness of a movement for an actual revolution that could at long last put an end to all forms of oppression and exploitation throughout the world.

At the heart of Revolution Books is the leadership of Bob Avakian, concentrated in the new synthesis of communism, a breakthrough in the science of revolution. In a world crying out for fundamental change, this is a game changer for a new stage of revolution and communism.

Humanity is up against horrific and complex problems. To act on and change this world requires revolutionary theory to comprehend this, to find and see the patterns and pathways to change, and most of all to guide an actual revolution. It requires knowing quite a bit about the world.

Thus, the mission of Revolution Books.  RB is a place of revolution with the wide arms and critical spirit and method to embrace the great breadth of human experience found in the thousands of titles that the store will house.  

These contributions take on even deeper meaning through the scientific method and approach of Bob Avakian's new synthesis of communism, and in the context of a movement whose goal is nothing short of the emancipation of all humanity, and a radically different and far better world.
