Alex Callinicos + Jonny Jones: Analysis: The student revolt and the crisis

129

jan 11

 

We enter 2011 in a situation marked by both continuity and—in Britain, at least—dramatic discontinuity. The element of continuity is represented, of course, by the global economic and financial crisis. Change comes in the form of the sudden emergence of the first real social movement in Britain for many years, the protests by university and school students against the near-trebling of tuition fees.

 

Megan Trudell: Analysis: Mad as hatters? The Tea Party movement in the US

Two years after his election Barack Obama presides over an increasingly divided nation, in both economic and political terms. His failure to deliver on the promise of real change has seen him punished in the midterm elections for Congress and for many state governments, as many whose hopes were raised in 2008 sat out the contest.

 

Simon Behrmann: Police killings and the law

Many people, even those of us with little or no illusions in the police, felt a deep sense of shock and outrage when on 22 July 2010 the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) announced that there would be no prosecution of PC Simon Harwood, who was filmed striking Ian Tomlinson shortly before he died during the G20 protests in April 2009.

 

Paul Blackledge: Labourism and socialism: Ralph Miliband’s Marxism

It is more than a little ironic that the recent race for the leadership of the Labour Party came down to a contest between the Miliband brothers. For their dad, Ralph, was the author of a devastating socialist critique of the Labour Party, Parliamentary Socialism.

A review of John Prescott with Hunter Davies, Prezza: Pulling No Punches (Headline, 2008), £18.99; Peter Mandelson, The Third Man: Life At The Heart Of New Labour (Harper Press, 2010), £25; Tony Blair, A Journey (Hutchinson, 2010), £25.

 

Roddy Slorach: Marxism and disability

Many young women full of devotion and good-will have been engaged in superficial charities. They have tried to feed the hungry without knowing the causes of poverty. They have tried to minister to the sick without understanding the cause of disease. They have tried to raise up fallen sisters without understanding the brutal arm of necessity that struck them down… We attempt social reforms where we need social transformations.

A review of David Harvey, The Enigma of Capital (Profile, 2010), £14.99
David Harvey ranks today among the world’s most renowned Marxist theoreticians. His fame is thoroughly deserved. Few red professors have his gift for presenting sophisticated ideas with such clarity or his commitment to exploring the central questions of the moment.

 

Andrew Stone: What’s wrong with school history?

“The moment I understand history as possibility, I must also understand education in different way”.

 

Suzanne Jeffery: Why we should be sceptical of climate sceptics

Climate science came massively under attack in 2010. Leaked emails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia were spun by the right wing media to claim that climate scientists had hidden and manipulated data. The affair was dubbed “Climategate”.

 

John Rose: Tony Cliff’s Lenin and the Russian Revolution

129

jan 11

 

In Tony Cliff’s original four-volume series on Lenin published in the 1970s, the second volume was entitled All Power to the Soviets and the third Revolution Besieged. Besieged may not mean destroyed, but the civil war, which began in May 1918, fundamentally altered the relations between the soviets and the ruling Bolshevik Party.

 

Xanthe Whittaker + Gareth Dale: Feedback: Sex work: a rejoinder

Productive debate requires engagement with the other’s stronger positions. In her reply to us, Jess Edwards ignores this rule, relying instead upon insinuation, imputation and distortion. She enlists enough Aunt Sallies and straw men to pack out a small stadium, and red herrings to collapse a fishmonger’s slab.

 

Grace Lally: Feedback: Discussing the alternatives

In the last issue of this journal Alex Callinicos invited discussion on the kinds of demand that might provide a “complete” and “universally valid” transitional programme for revolutionaries today. This is somewhat of a new departure for the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) and most certainly requires more consideration by party members than I can give it here, but I want to take issue with a number of the points he makes.

Kwame Anthony Appiah, The Honour Code: How Moral Revolutions Happen (Norton, 2010), £19.99
Kwame Anthony Appiah has had an idea: “appeals to reason, morality, or religion aren’t enough to ring in reform. Practices are eradicated only when they come into conflict with honour.” He explores three past “moral revolutions”—the eradication of duelling, footbinding and slavery—to draw lessons on how to end continuing insanities such as honour killing.

Alison J Ayers (ed), Gramsci, Political Economy and International Relations Theory (Palgrave Macmillan, 2008), £55
It says a good deal about the nature of the academy that despite Marxism’s internationalist perspective it was until recently at best marginalised and at worst ignored in the discipline of international relations (IR). This began to change in the 1980s in large part due to the pioneering work of Robert W Cox and those who subsequently developed his insights in what has come to be called the neo-Gramscian current in IR.

Ha-Joon Chang, 23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism, (Allen Lane, 2010), £20.00
Ha-Joon Chang is an economist based at Cambridge who has made a reputation as a critic of the free-market orthodoxy in development economics. Thus in Kicking Away the Ladder he showed how the leading Western capitalist states demand that developing economies abjure all the protectionist methods that they themselves had used to industrialise in the first place.
