Socialism (2005) is a whirlwind tour of the phrase after which the book is called. Socialism has played an essential part in human history during the last 200 years, but its basic objective of building an equitable society has been largely lost in recent decades.

Michael Newman is an Emeritus Professor of Politics at London Metropolitan University, where he also held a Jean Monnet Personal Chair in European Studies. He is presently a professor at New York University in London. Newman has written extensively about socialism, Europe, peace, and violence.
