Chris Harman: Analysis: the faultlines grow deeper

110

3

mar 06

 

We have analysed three faultlines in the world system in recent issues of this journal—the morass in which the US finds itself in Iraq, the wave of insurgency sweeping South America and the resistance to attempts to push through neo-liberal policies in Europe. All three are deepening.

 

Yuri Prasad: Nepal on the brink

110

20

mar 06

 

For the last ten years the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal has been in the grip of a civil war, with the king and his Royal Nepalese Army (RNA) on one side, and the Communist Party of Nepal—Maoist (CPN-M) and their People’s Liberation Army (PLA) on the other.

 

Roland Denis: Venezuela: the popular movement and the government

110

29

mar 06

 

Roland Denis is active in the Venezuelan Movement of 13 April. Chris Harman and Maina van der Zwan interviewed him in Caracas at the end of January 2006.1 We began by asking him about the development of the movement at the base of society.

 

Dave Crouch: The Bolsheviks and Islam

110

37

mar 06

 

Missing from much of the discussion about socialists and Islam is an appreciation of how Lenin’s Bolsheviks made their revolution after 1917 among the peoples of the former Russian Empire, where 10 percent of the population—some 16 million people—were Muslims.

 

Gareth Jenkins: Marxism and terrorism

110

61

mar 06

 

‘Terrorism’ is the new global threat against which global war must now be fought, according to ruling class politicians and the media. This affects sections of the left. Those who showed sympathy to organisations (such as the Provisional IRA) using ‘terrorist’ methods in the 1970s now all too often take a completely opposite view of today’s ‘terrorism’.

 

Neil Davidson: Enlightenment and anti-capitalism

110

85

mar 06

 

The Enlightenment was an intellectual and social movement which, like the Renaissance and the Reformation before it, characterised a specific historical period. Yet it remains at the heart of current concerns in a way that, for example, Reformation debates over predestination do not. The Enlightenment remains a contemporary issue and not merely a historical one.

 

Geoff Brown: Pakistan: on the edge of instability

110

113

mar 06

 

As George W Bush weighs up the odds of military action against Iran, one factor his administration will be taking into consideration is instability in Pakistan. This longtime US client state lies at one end of the arc of instability caused by the US’s occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

Charlie Hore: Mao out of context

110

135

mar 06

 

A review of Jung Chang and Jon Halliday, Mao: The Untold Story (Jonathan Cape, 2005), £25.
Chang and Halliday set out their agenda from the book’s opening words: ‘Mao Zedong, who for decades held absolute power over one quarter of the world’s population, was responsible for well over 70 million deaths in peacetime, more than any other 20th century leader’ (p3).

 

Pete Glatter: The light that hasn’t failed

110

153

mar 06

 

Kevin Murphy’s book "Revolution and Counterrevolution: Class Struggle in a Moscow Metal Factory" is a landmark in the study of Soviet history. The book is a stark challenge to the conventional idea that ‘Lenin led to Stalin’—ie, that Stalinism arose on the basis of the 1917 Revolution instead of in opposition to it. Kevin discussed the issues raised by his book, which won the 2005 Deutscher Memorial prize, with Pete Glatter.

 

Michael Eaude: The anger and ethics of Manuel Vázquez Montalbán

110

167

mar 06

 

Manuel Vázquez Montalbán (1939-2003) was one of the last of the engagé writers of Southern Europe, left wing intellectuals produced by the large Communist parties of the 1960s and 1970s. Prolific journalist, essayist and novelist, he was an outstanding interpreter of Spain in its transformation from the sad, frightened country of the Franco dictatorship to its limited, but vibrant, bourgeois democracy today.

110

183

mar 06

Korean writer Hwang Sok-yong’s recently translated novel The Guest concerns the Korean War (1950-53), one of the 20th century’s less remembered wars. The narrative is also a dizzying kaleidoscope of Korea’s modern history.
