One hundred and fifty years in the past Marx and Engels produced the Communist Manifesto. This ended with the stirring phrases "Workers of all lands unite! you don't have anything to lose yet your chains. you've got an international to win!" even if this slogan encouraged generations of unionists and socialists, the internationalism became nationalism, the worlds received didn't loosen the chains or even the worlds themselves have been lost.
This e-book examines the earlier internationalism of labour and socialists and the current one of many new radical-democratic social routine (such as womens events and feminism). It argues for a brand new international harmony that pertains to a radicalized, globalized, informatized and complicated capitalist modernity. This new internationalism addresses a number of worldwide social difficulties and democratic hobbies. It either learns from the social theories of this day and offers an important supplement to them.

It runs as follows. The widening and deepening of capitalist industrialization in the nineteenth century led to successive waves of labour protest, union and party organization and of internationalism. They were marked by the creation of the First International (1864-72/6), the Second International (1889) and the Third International (1919). Each of these waves expressed a closer approximation to the international theory and internationalist strategy expressed with such prescience by Marx and Engels in 1848.
It provides powerful tools for deconstructing traditional universalistic discourses, as well as for sensitizing us to the multiplicity and plasticity of, for example, worker identities. Postmodernists, however, would tend to be either suspicious of or hostile to any such attempt at rethinking internationalism as it is represented by this work. I see such literature as expressing, rather than comprehending, current experiences or feelings of fragmentation, insecure or multiple identity, suspicion of grand ideological discourses and apocalyptical strategies.
