This book steps into this moment to offer a clear, accessible, informative, and irreverent guide to socialism for the uninitiated. Written by young writers from the dynamic magazine Jacobin, alongside several distinguished scholars, The ABCs of Socialism answers basic questions, including ones that many want to know but might be afraid to ask (“Doesn’t socialism always end up in dictatorship?”, “Will socialists take my Kenny Loggins records?”). Disarming and pitched to a general readership without sacrificing intellectual depth, this will be the best introduction an idea whose time seems to have come again. (Description from Google Books).

The MADSA Office is located a short walk from the Five Points MARTA Station. Parking is on the street and in the lot nearby. Street parking is free after 7pm.

The venue is on the fifth floor with an accessible entrance. Call this number if no one is at the door.
