Alex Callinicos: Analysis: The interminable catastrophe

146

3

apr 15

 

The present situation—both in Britain and globally—resembles nothing more than a car crash unfolding in extreme slow motion. Everyone watching the film knows it’s going to end badly, but things move forward so slowly that the ultimate crash is hard to get one’s head round.

 

Panos Garganas: Analysis: Syriza and the crisis

The election victory of Syriza (the Coalition of the Radical Left) in Greece has galvanised the radical left internationally. With parliamentary elections due in the Spanish state later this year, the prospect of a left front against austerity in Europe has opened up. But the hopes Syriza’s victory evoked were badly jolted by the agreement that the new Greek government under Alexis Tsipras made with the Eurogroup (the eurozone finance ministers) on 20 February.

 

Jim Wolfreys: After the Paris attacks: An Islamophobic spiral

“There will be a before and an after,” French prime minister Manuel Valls declared in the wake of the appalling murders that took place in Paris in early 2015, the slaughter of a dozen people at the Charlie Hebdo offices on 7 January by Chérif and Saïd Kouachi and the killing of a police officer and four shoppers at a kosher supermarket by Amedy Coulibaly over the next two days.

 

Hassan Mahamdallie: Islamophobia: the othering of Europe’s Muslims

146

apr 15

 

Islamophobia has become the predominant form of racism in Europe today. It is proving to be potent and multifaceted, manifesting itself at state, popular and party political level. It represents a profoundly divisive force, not least because the “Muslim question” is a central component of the “war on terror” characterised by those prosecuting it as an elemental struggle for the very survival of Western civilisation and Enlightenment values.

In August 2014 unarmed 18 year old black teenager Michael Brown was shot and killed by white police officer Darren Wilson in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson. Brown was shot six times including twice to the head, despite having his hands up in surrender, and left dead in the street for four and a half hours.

Abiodun Olamosu + Andy Wynne: Africa rising? The economic history of sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa is huge. Its area is larger than that of China, the United States and India combined or five times that of the 28 countries of the European Union. Its population, at over 930 million, is also getting on for twice as much as that of the European Union.

 

Dave Lyddon: Bureaucratic mass strikes: A response to Mark O’Brien

146

apr 15

 

The mass strike of 30 November 2011 (N30) was the broadest and biggest ever British public sector strike and involved the largest number of women workers in any British strike. It has been discussed several times in this journal, with Mark O’Brien giving a particularly useful account of local organisation around N30, but my response will comment on some of his other points.

 

Kevin Edmonds: An elusive independence: Neocolonial intervention in the Caribbean

On the eve of Jamaica’s celebrations marking 50 years of political independence, the Jamaica Gleaner released the results of a poll finding that an estimated 60 percent of Jamaicans believed that they would be better off if they had remained a colony of Britain.

 

Martin Upchurch: The end of the “safe space” for unions? A response to Simon Joyce

146

apr 15

 

Simon Joyce has written a welcome article that seeks to address why Britain’s strike record is at a historically low level. Simon’s argument is that the “confidence theory” of strike action, associated with the International Socialist tradition, is insufficient to explain contemporary labour quiescence.

 

Donny Gluckstein: The question of confidence: A reply to Simon Joyce

146

apr 15

 

Simon Joyce’s piece “Why are there so few strikes?” in International Socialism 145 is very welcome. It asks an essential question, and Joyce clearly achieves his aim of opening a discussion.

Claudio Pavone, A Civil War: A History of the Italian Resistance (Verso, 2014), £20
A Civil War is a detailed survey of the ideas and motivations of the partisans and their fascist enemies in Italy between 1943 and 1945.

Colin Barker, Laurence Cox, John Krinsky and Alf Gunvald Nilsen (eds), Marxism and Social Movements (Brill, 2013/Haymarket, 2014) £111/£25.99
Marxism and Social Movements is an incredibly useful and important book. At its theoretical heart it asks two seemingly simple questions: Why are social movements important? And what is the relationship between Marxism and social movements?

 

Andrew Stone: Book Review: From militant to minister

Paula Bartley, Ellen Wilkinson: From Red Suffragist to Government Minister (Pluto, 2014), £11.50, and Matt Perry, “Red Ellen” Wilkinson: Her Ideas, Movements and World (Manchester University Press, 2014), £75
Ellen Wilkinson led an extraordinary life. The daughter of an under-employed insurance collector and Methodist minister in Manchester, she took on many guises in her political life: suffragist, teacher, trade union organiser, Communist, Labourist and ultimately cabinet minister. She was an ardent and persuasive public speaker, and a journalist, novelist and writer of several influential books, including her account of the Jarrow Crusade—The Town That Was Murdered—that has lived on in the popular memory as ­epitomising ­depression-hit 1930s Britain. She was also one of the foremost anti-imperialist voices of the inter-war years.

Mike Gonzalez, Hugo Chávez, Socialist for the Twenty-first Century (Pluto, 2014), £11.50
In 2004 I remember sitting in one of the minibuses that take the more well-heeled residents of Porto Alegre in Brazil from the centre to the suburbs, when the bus was stopped by the police outside the massive Gigantinho stadium and a long convoy of cars passed us. In one of them I saw Hugo Chávez. I shouted “Presidente Chávez” and the whole bus jumped up to catch a sight and take photos.

Gajendra Singh, The Testimonies of Indian Soldiers and the Two World Wars (Bloomsbury, 2014), £27.99
The 100th anniversary of the First World War has brought into scope the “hidden” role of Britain’s Indian colonial soldiers. The recruitment of Indian Sipahis (or sepoys—soldiers) into the British Indian Army was utterly and cynically based on martial and environmental race theories. British army recruiters applied deep-seated racist notions in determining the type of Indian recruit they could and wanted to keep in the colonial army. The essence of the notion of divide and rule was practised most in the military.

Merilyn Moos, Beaten but not Defeated: Siegfried Moos, A German anti-Nazi who settled in Britain (Chronos Books, 2014), £17.99
Siegi Moos arrived in Britain in 1934 after walking across Germany to avoid capture by the Gestapo—and almost certain death—and escaping into France. His arrival in Britain was the pivotal point between the two halves of his life, as it is in this assiduously researched biography by his daughter, Merilyn Moos.

A Note on Andreas Bieler and Adam David Morton, “Axis of Evil or Access to Diesel? Spaces of New Imperialism and the Iraq War” (Historical Materialism, 23.2 [2015])
Andreas Bieler and Adam Morton have just published a long and wide ranging article on imperialism. Since my own version of the classical Marxist theory of imperialism, along with William Robinson’s theory of transnational capitalism, serves as a counterfoil for their own argument, I thought it might be interesting to offer a few quick comments. (There’s a lot more in the article that I don’t address—for example, discussions of Rosa Luxemburg, Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin.)
