Please see my review essay of this book, together with Robinson's 'Why You Should Be A Socialist,' here:

If you only read one of these books, make it Robinson's. Despite a horrific introduction, this is a nice book. The best thing in Sunkara's book, on the contrary, is the excellent introduction.

Part I is a history of socialism and took some work to get through. There are a lot of factions that are all interrelated, which makes it somewhat complicated and difficult to follow.

Part II is about what has happened since 2000 and the possibilities for the future. A much easier read and very hopeful.
