For an introduction to our understanding of socialist politics, read Alan Sears's article Notes Towards a Socialism for the Times

That article first appeared in Socialism for Our Times (NS 63 2008-1) (issue 63 of New Socialist, from 2008), a collection of articles on different aspects of our kind of socialist politics. It's free to download.
