A Memoir by Bob Avakian

Preaching from a Pulpit of Bones
(We Need Morality But Not Traditional Morality)
by Bob Avakian
"What is ethical thinking in a time of social fragmentation
and imperialist globalization? Bob Avakian convincingly argues that moriality
has to be tied to a vision of a good society, a society free of exploitation
and every form of domination. Even more does morality have to do with the
struggle to create such a society. Avakian points the way toward what some
doubt is possible, a materialist ethics. Like Mao's, this is a Marxism that
aims at a social analysis that is clear and systematic but not 'cold' –
a Marxism with heart."
— Bill Martin, Associate Professor of Philosophy,
DePaul University, Chicago
