Alex Callinicos: Analysis: Austerity politics

128

okt 10

 

Fiscal austerity is more and more securely locked into place in the advanced capitalist countries. This is despite all the signs that the world economy faces, at best, a weak and unsteady recovery. The financial markets spent the summer agonising over the probability of a double-dip recession. But Robert Reich, labour secretary under Bill Clinton, summed up the view of many economists of different political and intellectual allegiances who believe the data actually point to a grimmer reality.

On Sunday 19 September 2010 engineers finally sealed the Macondo oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, which had exploded five months earlier and caused the “the world’s largest accidental offshore oil spill”.

 

Panos Garganas: Analysis: Greece: striking back

Greece has been at the heart of the struggle over austerity in Europe. Panos Garganas is editor of the weekly paper Workers’ Solidarity and a leading member of the Sosialistiko Ergatiko Komma (SEK, Socialist Workers Party), Greek sister organisation of the British SWP. He talked to Alex Callinicos in Athens on 8 September, the day that a five-hour strike by railway and public transport workers shut the city down, announcing the resumption of hostilities between the Greek working class and the social democratic government of George Papandreou after the summer break.

 

Tom Hickey + Phil Marfleet: The “South Africa moment”: Palestine, Israel and the boycott

128

okt 10

 

Israel faces a new challenge—one the country’s leading strategists consider increasingly effective. This does not come mainly from the towns and refugee camps of the West Bank or Gaza, but from an energetic global movement of solidarity with the Palestinians. Since its launch in 2004 the campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) has stimulated a host of collective actions across five continents, demanding an end to military rule and to Israel’s occupation, and raising important questions about the Zionist movement and imperial power in the Middle East.

 

Jamie Allinson: Hamas, Gaza and the blockade

The Israeli commando raid on the Turkish ship the Mavi Marmara, part of the international “Freedom Flotilla” on a mission to break the blockade of Gaza, seemed to cross a boundary not broken even in the 2006 war against Lebanon or the 2009 war against Gaza.

 

Christakis Georgiou: The euro crisis and the future of European integration

128

81

okt 10

 

The crisis which hit Europe in the spring and early summer of 2010 is proof that all the talk about recovery from the crisis which broke out in September 2008 is totally off the mark.

 

Jane Hardy: Crisis and recession in Central and Eastern Europe

okt 10

 

Despite the virtual implosion of some economies in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)—plunging living standards in parts of the region, protests and social unrest—little attention has been paid to the crisis and recession in the ten post-Communist countries that joined the European Union (EU) in 2004 and 2006.

 

Jairus Banaji: The ironies of Indian Maoism

128

129

okt 10

 

“A spectre is haunting South Asia—the spectre of Maoism,” the Financial Times rather melodramatically announced in April 2006, reporting that the Indian prime minister, Manmohan Singh, had described Maoist guerrillas as “the single greatest threat to Indian national security”.

 

John Molyneux: Michelangelo and human emancipation

128

okt 10

 

Michelangelo stands at the very summit of human fame, or celebrity as we now call it. His position is secure among that very small band of individuals—Aristotle, Shakespeare, Goethe, Mozart, da Vinci and so on—who seem to tower over history, much as one imagines the Colossus of Rhodes, and whose status is commonly given a universal, transcendental character.

 

Neil Davidson: From deflected permanent revolution to the law of uneven and combined development

“Trotsky is the one for whom there is no room either in pre-1990 Really Existing Socialism or in post-1990 Really Existing Capitalism, in which even those who are nostalgic for Communism do not know what to do with Trotsky’s permanent revolution”. Slavoj Zizek wrote these words at the beginning of the millennium and, in this case, he expresses a sentiment with which readers of International Socialism are likely to agree.

 

Simon Pirani: Feedback: Socialism in the 21st century and the Russian Revolution

okt 10

 

My book The Russian Revolution in Retreat will not “resonate with the tens of thousands of young people now open to socialist ideas”, according to Kevin Murphy’s negative review in International Socialism 126.

 

Jess Edwards: Feedback: Sexism and sex work: A response to Dale and Whittaker

128

207

okt 10

 

The previous issue of this journal carried an article by Gareth Dale and Xanthe Whittaker arguing that sex work is fundamentally the same as other forms of wage labour in capitalist society. They argue that the primary response of revolutionary socialists to the growth of the sex industry should be to organise sex workers in their workplaces and fight for unionisation.

Richard B Day and Daniel Gaido (eds), Witnesses to Permanent Revolution: The Documentary Record, (Haymarket, 2011), $36
“The revolutionary centre is moving from the West to the East,” writes German socialist Karl Kautsky in 1903 in the first article in this collection. It is an apt opening for a groundbreaking book that documents some of the huge debates that took place in the socialist movement in Russia and beyond in the years 1903-1907.

Donald Filtzer, Wendy Z. Goldman, Gijs Kessler and Simon Pirani (eds), A Dream Deferred: New Studies in Russian and Soviet Labour History (Peter Lang, 2008), £52.70
The great American poet, Langston Hughes asked “What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up, like a raisin in the sun, or fester like a sore and then run?” This book, which takes its title from Hughes’ poem, aims to address those deferred and conflicting dreams that plagued the world’s first socialist revolution in Russia in 1917.

Mark Bould and China Mieville (eds), Red Planets, Marxism and Science Ficiton (Pluto Press, 2009), £19.99
This collection of essays provides a critical analysis of science fiction (SF) within the media of film and novels. The genre, which involves exploring the possibility of worlds structured in ways different to ours, appeals to many who are inspired by the slogan “another world is possible”.

Alex Callinicos, Bonfire of Illusions: The Twin Crises of the Liberal World, (Polity Press, 2010), £14.99
A book’s dedication rarely relates closely to its content but this is an exception. Dedicated to the memories of Chris Harman and Peter Gowan, its twin themes are their lifelong preoccupations: capitalist crisis (Harman) and US imperialism (Gowan).
