Publisher info

Wellred Books is the publishing house and worldwide bookshop of the International Marxist Tendency, which is actively building revolutionary forces in over 30 countries around the world.

As Lenin famously decried, "Without revolutionary theory, there can be no revolutionary movement."

A number of Marxist classics have been published by Wellred Books, including our well-known collection of The Classics of Marxism, which includes 'The Communist Manifesto' and Lenin's 'The State and Revolution'. We also publish some works which are not widely available in new print editions, such as Engels' Anti-Duhring. We are looking to publish many more classics as our resources continue to grow.

In addition to Marxist classics, Wellred Books publishes dozens of new Marxist titles, for sale almost exclusively on this site. The most famous of these is Reason in Revolt by Alan Woods and Ted Grant, which was held in high esteem by Venezuela's revolutionary leader Hugo Chavez.

As well as books we publish ourselves, at Wellred Books we offer an array of left literature on all sorts of topics - from Marx's Capital to the speeches of Touissant L'Ouverture to a study of NHS privatisation - at very reasonable prices.
