Toward a Democratic Left: A Radical Program for a New Majority, Volume 10
"This book examines the political, social, and economic problems of our times and poses the urgent need for new political alliances in the United States that will cause the government to take constructive action on the many domestic and international crises that face us. He argues that liberalism cannot respond to the problems of America today unless it moves sharply to the democratic left. By "left" he means "a program and movement which socialists and radicals can support, but which appeals to the most traditional American aspirations for reform as well." He proposes formation of a political party built by the new Leftists, labor unions, white collar workers, youth groups, and black power advocates, which would work to change government policies through democratic means"--Back cover.
