“Leo Panitch wanted people to deeply understand the capitalism system – because building socialism was difficult.”
This week, in a special episode of A World to Win, we remember the brilliant Marxist thinker, writer and public intellectual Leo Panitch.
Grace talks to Max Shanly, Labour Party activist and long-time friend of Leo, and Sam Gindin, former director of research for the Canadian Auto Workers’ Union and Leo’s collaborator, including on his magnum opus The Making of Global Capitalism.
Several of Leo Panitch’s books and many of his essays are available for free through the Socialist Register. He was also a member of Tribune‘s advisory board – read his writings for us and our obituary for him here.
