Narrating this enlightening look at socialism's history and modern-day relevance, narrator Benjamin Isaac is easy to hear and understand. Some listeners will wish for a more colorful performance; his pleasing voice and faithful interpretations make the sentences clear, but his vocal style lacks the subtle emotional variations necessary to signal the thematic shifts and surprises in this enlightening work. Nonetheless, Isaac's otherwise clean performance does succeed in making clear the author's belief in socialism's potential to remedy today's increasingly unequal social and political order. Sunkara says that when socialism is not corrupted by regimes that exercise rigid central control, as China and Russia do, it can bolster democratic participation and ensure that citizens have access to health care, housing, education, and other opportunities for improving their lives.
