This is one of the best introduction books on the topic of socialism. It is comprised of short chapters that answer basic questions. For example, Don’t the rich deserve to keep most of their money? and Doesn’t socialism always end up in dictatorship? Each question is answered by a different writer.
The writers include some of the foremost scholars who write in the radical left tradition, such as NYU professor Vivek Chibber.
The book is easily readable and written in a way that is accessible to non-academic audiences. I have used it many times in my college courses on radical political thought.
