In the past, art celebrated the power of nature and the smallness of the human. Then, over time, figures appeared in the landscape, and human beings affirmed their power to reshape it.

Our election campaign in Preston was based on our record over the last four years; a record of combining local issues with national and international issues. We aim to be community shop stewards, dealing with whatever problems people have.

315

315

Chris Harman is right to say that Gordon Brown is very lucky (In Perspective, May Socialist Review).

 

Alan Watts: Feedback: Gallic Explanations

315

8

jun 07

 

Why is it that just before the second round of the French elections Chris Harman tells Socialist Review readers that France's productivity, along with other countries in Europe, is well ahead of Britain's, implying that the French economy is in better shape than that of the British?

Having just read Live Working or Die Fighting I was happy to see the enthusiastic review (Feature, May Socialist Review).

 

Paul O’Keeffe: Feedback: Which Hand?

315

8

jun 07

 

Am I the only one who was disturbed by the penultimate paragraph of Beccy Reese's otherwise excellent review of Joel Kovel's Overcoming Zionism (Books May Socialist Review)?

 

Beccy Reese: Feedback: In Response

315

8

jun 07

 

I wholeheartedly agree with Paul O'Keeffe that criticism of Zionism must be separated from anti-Semitism.

 

Olivier Besancenot: Letter from ...: France

315

9

The severe electoral defeat of the left doesn't automatically mean a social defeat, argues Olivier Besancenot of the Ligue Communiste Révolutionnaire (LCR).

315

10

Billy Hayes: Union-made: "Everybody Out"

315

13

jun 07

 

Wayne Rooney and I share something in common: not the football team he supported as a child (Everton) – and certainly not the one he plays for now – but the school he attended, Gillmoss School in Croxteth, Liverpool.

 

Judith Orr + Michael Bradley: Can Things Only Get Better?

315

14

jun 07

 

The decision by Labour MPs to deny party members the chance to choose their new leader means Gordon Brown will take office at the end of June. Judith Orr looks at the problems he will face and the state of the Labour left, while Michael Bradley examines the response from the unions.

 

Chris Harman: In perspective: Sarkozy – Capital's Latest Helper

315

17

jun 07

 

The three main contenders for France's presidency last month were in agreement over one thing – the need for economic reform and increased accommodation for market forces.
But why are Europe's capitalists so desperate to embrace Nicolas Sarkozy's new vision of France?

 

Judith Orr: Howard Zinn on Making History

315

18

jun 07

 

Pathbreaking historian and political activist Howard Zinn talks to Judith Orr about his life, war, class politics and taking sides.

 

Pat Stack: A to Z of Socialism: B is for Bolshevik

315

22

jun 07

 

When I was a young man way back in the days when Blair was a much loved performer and Brown was noted for his twin ambitions to be leader of the Labour Party and to drink Westminster dry (I speak of course of Lionel and George), the term "Bolshy" was a common one.

 

Matt Foot: Book Review: Clive Stafford Smith: Bad Men

315

23

jun 07

 

When George Bush opened his offshore prison camp of Guantanamo in January 2002, he was proclaiming to the world that he and the US were above the law.
"Bad Men – Guantanamo Bay and the Secret Prisons" by Clife Stafford Smith is published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson, £16.99.

 

Penny Howard: Book Review: Eyal Weizman: Hollow Land

315

24

jun 07

 

Devotees of the latest nuances of postmodernist styles will be disappointed with Weizman's book, for this is not about changing architectural fashions in hot arid climates. Hollow Land – Israel's Architecture of Occupation is the work of an architect chronicling the physical occupation and colonisation of Palestine by Zionism – in all its forms.

 

Anindya Bhattacharyya: Book Review: Andrew Cockburn: Rumsfeld

315

24

jun 07

 

One of the most pleasing aspects of the thrashing the Republicans suffered in last year's elections to the US Congress was seeing Donald Rumsfeld, George Bush's defence secretary and chief architect of the Iraq war, getting unceremoniously dumped.

 

Ingrid Lamprecht: Book Review: Helen Oyeyemi: The Opposite House

315

25

jun 07

 

This novel is like a long poem. It flutters in and out of realism and surrealism, touching on the subjects of religion, belonging, identity, love and politics.

 

Brian Richardson: Book Review: Kester Aspden: Nationality: Wog

315

25

jun 07

 

In the introduction to his book, author Kester Aspden boldly declares his belief that "the hounding of David Oluwale says something about Britain then and now." Initially this appears a brave, but injudicious assertion on a number of counts.

 

Ghassan Makarem: Book Review: Fawwaz Traboulsi: A History of Modern Lebanon

315

26

jun 07

 

As Lebanese historian Fawwaz Traboulsi writes in the introduction to his book, traditional accounts of Lebanon reduce the identity of the Lebanese to one unique form – their sectarian affiliation. Mainstream resources treat the struggles in the country as a series of tribal conflicts or as an earthly paradise for the extremely wealthy interrupted by "external intervention" and "fanatics".

 

Tony Staunton: Book Review: Michael Lavalette and Iain Ferguson (eds.): International Social Work and the Radical Tradition

315

26

jun 07

 

Free market globalisation has brought not only increased poverty, inequality, social and personal problems, but also a consequential growth in social work. Most who seek to practise social work do so from a desire to help address the problems that affect people's lives.

 

Ken Muller: Book Review: Francis Beckett: The Great City Academy Fraud

315

27

jun 07

 

This devastating new book has done a great service to all of us who are intent on defending and extending comprehensive state education, by exposing the right wing pedigree, corruption and educational vandalism of one central aspect of the drive by Tony Blair and Gordon Brown to force schools to prepare children more closely for their economic roles under capitalism: city academies.

 

Beth Stone: Book Review: Alice McDermott: After This

315

28

jun 07

 

The narrative is set against the background of the tumultuous changes of the 1960s, played out by the experiences of a fairly ordinary middle class suburban family and their friends and neighbours. Over everything looms the shadow of the Vietnam War.

 

Simon Basketter: Book Review: David Kynaston: Austerity Britain, 1945-1951

315

28

jun 07

 

"Dreariness is everywhere," wrote one schoolteacher in 1948. "Streets are deserted, lighting is dim, people's clothes are shabby and their tables bare." David Kynaston's history of the period from 1945 to 1951 is full of anecdotes recorded in diaries and letters, and from the Mass Observation archive. It is both the book's strength and its weakness. He says he aims to tell "the story of ordinary citizens as well as ministers and mandarins".

 

Patrick Ward: Book Review: Bernard Mandel: Labor, Free and Slave

315

29

jun 07

 

Bernard Mandel was part of a response to a school of thought best summarised in the words of scholar William E Woodward: "American Negroes [were] the only people in the history of the world... that ever became free without any effort of their own."

 

Judith Orr: Book Review: Sara Paretsky: Writing in an Age of Silence

315

29

jun 07

 

Sara Paretsky's fictional private eye, VI Warshawski, is from a different mould to most. She is a woman, for a start, and she sides with the poor and vulnerable against the rich and corrupt corporate powers of Chicago.

 

Book Review: New in Paperback and Children's Books

jun 07

 

Good books at affordable prices.

 

Martin Smith: Music Review: Ain't Music to Nazis' Ears

315

30

jun 07

 

Just 30 years ago this August the Nazi National Front organised an "anti-mugging" march in Lewisham, south London. Confronting them was a sea of opposition. Those protesters fought the police and Nazis to a standstill. In the middle of the melee a black woman set up a sound system in her flat window and blasted out Bob Marley's Get Up, Stand Up. For many, a new record was going to be added to their collection.

 

Esme Choonara: Film Review: Water (Director: Deepa Mehta)

315

31

jun 07

 

It is a triumph that this film was made at all. When filming for Water started in India seven years ago, Hindu chauvinist mobs destroyed the set and threw it into the Ganges. Due to the sheer determination of director Deepa Mehta, the film was eventually completed. It was worth her perseverance because she has made an absorbing, visually stunning and emotionally gripping film.

 

Katya Nasim: Film Review: Taking Liberties (Director: Chris Atkins)

315

31

jun 07

 

Chris Atkins has teamed up with the producers behind Michael Moore's blockbuster documentaries to take their battle against the erosion of civil liberties to Britain. In the film dubbed "Blair: The Movie" by some, Atkins sets out to illustrate one of the better remembered aspects of Tony Blair's legacy.

 

Louis Bayman: Film Review: Pasolini DVD Box Set Volumes 1 & 2 (Director: Pier Paolo Pasolini)

315

32

jun 07

 

No Italian film director excites the attention of socialists as much as Pier Paolo Pasolini. Born in Bologna in 1922 to a lieutenant who saved Mussolini's life, he joined the Italian Communist Party in Friuli only to be expelled for being gay. A poet, philosopher and linguist, Pasolini became the epitome of the 1960s public intellectual, his detached critique of Italy's Catholic and consumerist society the height of cultured chic.

Sirens – One Man Revolution – Renaissance and Revolution Season – As Used on the Famous Nelson Mandela – Marjetica Potrc

 

Mike Wayne: Film Review: The War on Democracy (Director: John Pilger)

315

34

jun 07

 

John Pilger has made more than 55 documentaries for television over a period of almost 40 years. They have taken viewers to people and places that are often far away, connecting them to British audiences, often via critical scrutiny of British foreign policy or that of its allies.
