A Nightmarish Dynamic That Imprisons Humanity...And the Real Alternative—
From the Writings and Talks of Bob Avakian:

Throughout the world, two forces contend--imperialism and Islamic fundamentalism. Neither has an emancipatory answer to the agonizing, killing, and planet-destroying problems confronting humanity. In this collection, find essential and crucial understanding of why the interests of humanity lie completely outside of and opposed to these "alternatives" and how humanity can break the vise-grip of this vicious dynamic...and break through to a whole new world.
