First words
Intro:
Compiling this Anthology has proven to be a far more difficult task than I had at first supposed it would be, far more difficult than merely bringing together authoritative texts of socialism and then appending other writings which, if less authoritative than controversial, would yield a contemporary socialist perspective.

Book description
    ESSENTIAL WORKS OF SOCIALISM


is the most authoritative one-volume collection of major socialist writings to appear in English. Edited by Irving Howe, the well-known social historian and literary critic, it includes not only classic statements by Marx, Engels, Bukharin, Plekhanov, Lenin, Luxemburg, and Trotsky, but also analysis, polemic, and re-evalutations from such vaired figures as Djilas, Silone, Ricouer, Lichthelm, Orwell, Bubuer, Hilakowski, Cole and Harrington.

Howe's introduction emphasizes that this is an anthology of socialist thought, not of Marxism.
Marxism has, of course, been the most influential strand of thought in the development of modern socialism, but non-Marxist socialism is also well-represented in this volume.

This work has been edited out of a conviction that no compromise is possible between democratic socialists and totalitarian despotism, who have appropriated the name of socialism.
