This centenary year has seen a resurgence in publishing of books and pamphlets by the Communist Party. 📚
It has been a year where we discovered much about our history and the members who contributed so much to the shaping of the modern union, women's, anti-racist anti fascist, anti-imperialist and peace movements.
A year in which the Party talked for itself rather than let others define our history, or describe our policy.
A vibrant struggle of ideas; communists as builders of peoples movements and of struggle for improvement in the daily lives of workers, their families and communities.
It is the Communist Party that, for 100 years, has never lowered the Red Flag of socialism. There have been some high points in the year, not least a requirement to go for a fourth pressing of our programme, the Britain's Road to Socialism, since March.
And of course there was the Centenary for Socialism launched at a 'Making History' live event.

We are proud that the following publications, in addition to clearly setting out our line of march, are of a high standard of research and are well-written and designed.
They have been deliberately released at a reasonable price to make them available to those who want to find out more about the class struggle in Britain and the struggle of the communists home and internationally.
We thank Manifesto Press for joining with the Party to publish some of the key volumes.

If you have not read them, I urge you to do so, confident in the belief that you will find them thought-provoking. They make a powerful case for socialism.
The publications would make an excellent gift and each copy sold, helps the Party fund its future.

Please do not leave your decision too long as postal delays are having an effect on delivery times.

Communist Party general secretary Robert Griffiths issued the following statement today (November 25) in response to Chancellor Rishi Sunak's one-year Spending Review:
Ten years of austerity cuts instead of massive investment in public services and productive industry has hugely increased the human and financial toll of the Covid crisis.
Now the economic recession which began early this year is going to bite deeper at a time when unemployment and government debt are already rocketing as a result of the pandemic.
