in Ireland. He was executed after the tragically failed Easter Uprising in 1916.
- The Friends of
Small Nationalities (1914)
A short, ironic piece by the Irish revolutionary
James Connolly, written during World War One, where he denounces the big powers for using
the rights of small nations as a fig leaf for their real imperialist aims.
- Workshop Talks
This marvellous little pamphlet by James Connolly has introduced millions of workers to
the basic ideas of socialism. Workshop Talks remains one of the best simple
rebuttals of all the arguments that come up over and over again against socialism, on
buses, in works canteens, and in pubs and clubs. "Socialism is not practical"...
"Socialism is contrary to religion"... "Socialism will destroy
freedom"... "Socialism means confiscation". Here are the answers!
Also available as a pamphlet along with Leon Trotsky's If America Should Go Communist.
