Marxist Education

Socialist Appeal and the International Marxist Tendency (IMT) take great pride in dedicating our time, energy, and resources to the cause of defending and developing the ideas of genuine Marxism.

Marxist theory is our guide to action. Lenin famously remarked that "without revolutionary theory, there can be no revolutionary action". It is what provides us with, in the words of Leon Trotsky, "the advantage of foresight over astonishment".

The purpose of Revolution Festival is to equip socialist activists with the clear ideas needed to overthrow capitalism and transform society.

And if the festival whets your appetite for Marxist theory, we recommend heading to the following places to delve further into the revolutionary ideas of Marxism:

  • Wellred Books - publishing house of Socialist Appeal and the IMT. Here you can purchase a full range of Marxist books, magazines, pamphlets, and other literature - all now available in both digital or physical versions.
  • Socialist Appeal - visit the education section of our website to find a one-stop shop for Marxist theory, including: introductory articles, classic texts, reading guides, videos, and audio talks for a variety of different topics. Everything you need to help focus your studies of Marxist theory and practice!
  • Marxist University -  the ultimate source of Marxist theory and analysis online, brought to you by In Defence of Marxism, the website of the IMT. Here you can find structured courses with recommended articles and videos on a range of topics on theory and history.

If you prefer watching and listening, head over and subscribe to our YouTube channel and Marxist Voice podcast.
