jun 09

 

The European elections look set to throw into sharp relief the shape of British politics. The fusion of the economic crisis with the political crisis over MPs' expenses is toxic. New Labour has been the main casualty. But fundamental assumptions about the legitimacy of Britain's parliamentary system have also been shaken to the core.

With politicians jumping over one another to claim that they are steering the world back to economic recovery, there are still few indicators that this is actually the case. Or are there?

 

Patrick Ward: Pots and kettles

337

7

jun 09

 

Voters in the European elections were urged to punish the "greedy Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem MPs" by UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage. Perhaps they will. But Farage's message might have come across a little better had he not admitted during his election campaign that he was claiming vast sums of money himself.

337

8

Pete Jackson: Letters: Fight against the fascists goes on

337

8

jun 09

 

In light of the current economic crisis and the political situation, it would appear that the fascist British National Party (BNP) are gaining popularity in a big way (Feature, Socialist Review, May 2009). However, our experiences of campaigning against them in the Midlands have been very positive.

When we finally won the redundancy money we fought for we called off our 24-hour picket. Our last day was good, but sad at the same time. There'll be no more going to work.

337

337

12

337

Christian Hogsbjerg: A to Z of Socialism: X is for Xenophobia

337

21

Xenophobia – literally fear and loathing of "the alien", "the stranger", "the foreigner" – has enjoyed a long if inglorious past, not least in Britain.

 

Dave Crouch: Media: When no news is bad news

337

22

jun 09

 

The rise of blogging, "citizen journalism" and free online content has been held as partly responsible for the demise of the newspaper industry. Dave Crouch argues the media corporations' greed is to blame for the thousands of journalists losing their jobs.

Neil Davidson: Book Review: Terry Eagleton: Reason, Faith and Revolution

337

25

jun 09

 

In this very welcome contribution to the current debate on religion, Terry Eagleton has two central objectives. One is to dismantle the pretensions of leading figures among the New Atheists, above all Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, whom he conflates into a single entity called "Ditchkins".
His other objective is likely to be more controversial with readers of Socialist Review. Eagleton, rightly focusing on Christianity rather than Islam, argues that the genuine radicalism of original religion was abandoned (the relevant chapter is actually called "The Revolution Betrayed") following its institutionalisation and subsequent accommodation to power

 

Andrew Stone: Book Review: Bertrand M Patenaude: Stalin's Nemesis

337

26

jun 09

 

Leon Trotsky spent the last four years of his life in a prison-like exile in Mexico. Pursued by Stalinist enemies, he survived an armed assault on his home before succumbing to the blows of Ramon Mercader, a GPU agent posing as a political sympathiser.
Stalin's Nemesis is a very readable account of these years, which despite Trotsky's enforced isolation were very eventful.

 

John Parrington: Book Review: André Pichot: The Pure Society

337

27

jun 09

 

Charles Darwin's legacy has been much celebrated recently, this year being the bicentenary of his birth. However, according to this book, there is a much darker side of evolutionary thought that should not be forgotten. Pichot shows how Darwin's name has been invoked in support of the reactionary theory of "eugenics".

 

Rachel Eborall: Book Review: Kevin Doogan: New Capitalism?

337

27

jun 09

 

For years we have been told that through neoliberalism the global economy has changed fundamentally and in turn the labour market has been transformed. We are told that there is no such thing as a job for life any more; that because of technological advances capital can easily move from country to country looking for the cheapest labour; that because of open markets multinationals can move to countries like India and China at the drop of a hat. It is claimed that these changes have led to a more precarious world where workers' lives have become more unstable.

 

Pat Stack: Book Review: Richard Vinen: Thatcher's Britain

337

28

jun 09

 

This book attempts to do the almost impossible: to take a dispassionate look at Margaret Thatcher and Thatcherism. I say almost impossible because just reading the chapters on the Miners' Strike, the Falklands War and the Hunger Strike brought back much of the rage and hatred I felt at the time.

 

Simon Basketter: Book Review: Clair Wills: Dublin 1916

jun 09

 

At just after noon on Easter Monday 1916 Irish Republican leader Padraig Pearse stood on the steps of the General Post Office in Dublin and read out a proclamation announcing the birth of the Irish Republic.

 

Viv Smith: Book Review: China Miéville: The City and The City

337

29

jun 09

 

China Miéville's new offering is a brave crossover from his usual "weird fiction" genre into the world of crime.

 

Sasha Simic: Book Review: Hilary Mantel: Wolf Hall

337

29

jun 09

 

This is the story of how, between the years 1525 and 1533, Henry VIII secured a divorce from his wife, Catherine of Aragon, in order to marry his lover, Anne Boleyn.

 

Colin Wilson: Book Review: Alex Ross: The Rest is Noise

337

30

jun 09

 

You might think that a history of 20th century classical music wouldn't include much of interest to socialists. But, as Alex Ross makes clear, this music was closely connected to social and political events and often written by those on the left.

 

Louis Bayman: Book Review: Nathan Gardels and Mike Medavoy: American Idol after Iraq

337

30

jun 09

 

This book attempts some academic weight but offers a very sketchy and confused account of the relationship between Hollywood, capital and politics.

Blackest Streets – Most Wanted Man – We saw Spain die – Underpants

32

Poland's leading post-war director, Andrzej Wajda, now 83, has made a stunning film about a defining moment in modern Polish society – the massacre of Polish army officers in the Katyn forest in the early years of the Second World War.

 

Peter Segal: Film Review: Lance Daly: Kisses

Christophe Chataigné: Music Review: Kronos Quartet: Floodplain

337

 

jun 09

 

The Kronos Quartet is probably one of the most prolific string quartets around. Over the past 30 years it has released more than 40 recordings and performed live countless times (it spends at least five months touring every year). But what's most impressive with the quartet is its thirst to commission original works (more than 600 of them) and the number of artists it works with.
