200 editions of Socialism Today

This is the 200th issue of Socialism Today, which was launched in 1995 as the monthly magazine of the Socialist Party.

This confirms the analysis of this magazine from the start: that the capitalist powers of Europe would be incapable of overcoming national boundaries and unifying the continent.

BRYAN KOULOURIS edits and updates material produced by Socialist Alternative, the US organisation in political solidarity with the Committee for a Workers International.
