Note: Manning Marable, Beyond Black and White: Transforming African-American Politics (Verso, 2009), £12.99

The sense of political disenfranchisement felt by this generation was one of the key starting points for Marable’s 1995 book Beyond Black and White, which has now been republished in an updated edition.

Megan Trudell: From a bang to a whimper: Obama’s first year
International Socialism Journal nr. 125, jan 10 – side 33
Note: The Obama presidency is in a quagmire. The tremendous promise encapsulated in the campaign slogan “Change we can believe in” and the enormous expectations of reform after the Bush years have not been realised. Energy has given way to hesitancy and the Obama government’s first year has seen it become increasingly entangled in the contradictions of profound crisis in the US. The conjuncture of recession and the deepening morass of war in Afghanistan have intensified divisions in the US political establishment. Government responses to the crisis have produced the twin, mutually reinforcing, effects of failure to deliver change for its most enthusiastic supporters and stoking political opposition to its right.
 
Joe Bageant: Obama: Is the dream over?

Socialist Worker nr. 2135, jan 09 – side 4

Analysis: From Bush to Obama

Millions of Hispanic Americans saw voting for Obama as the logical follow up to demonstrating against restrictions on immigrants.
 
Megan Trudell: Analysis: Obama and the working class vote
International Socialism Journal nr. 121, jan 09 – side 13
Note: The election of Barack Obama as president of the United States is tremendous confirmation of the widespread opposition to the wars, racism and economic policies of the Bush administration. The Obama campaign tapped into a deep desire for change among wide sections of the US population and drew large numbers into political engagement, often for the first time. The aspirations that were reflected in support for Obama could form the basis of a movement capable of transforming US politics much more profoundly. One of its most important features is the shift leftwards of millions of working class Americans—white as well as black.

Des Freedman: Book review: The New Blue Media
Socialist Review nr. 329, okt 08 – side 25
Note: by Theodore Hamm, The New Press, £14.99
The premise of this interesting book is that the US political landscape has been transformed by the rise of progressive media figures like Michael Moore and Jon Stewart and innovative online sites like MoveOn.org and the Daily Kos. Motivated in particular by a fierce opposition to the invasion and occupation of Iraq, this "new blue media" (blue, in the US context, refers to Democrats; red to Republicans) has helped to carve out a significant space in US political culture.

Note: by John Mearsheimer and Stephen M Walt.

Peter Iversen: Kommentar: Enron: Når kapitalismen er værst
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 201, feb 02 – side 6
Note: Somme tider knækker kapitalismens facade og stanken vælter ud. Sådan er det med Enron-skandalen i USA, der ikke ser ud til at have nogen ende.
 
Margit Johansen: Boblerne brister: Enrons konkurs ryster kapitalismen
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 199, dec 01 – side 4

Jakob Hansen: Efter det amerikanske valg: Råddenskab
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 188, dec 00 – side 4
Note: De seneste uger efter det amerikanske præsidentvalg har virkelig vist hvilken råddenskab, der gennemsyrer det etablerede amerikanske samfund.
 
Frank Antonsen + Christina Munk: Præsidentvalget i USA: Venstrefløjen fik afgørende betydning
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 187, nov 00 – side 4
Note: Præsidentvalget i USA var anderledes i år, end det har været tidligere.
Selvom valget ikke er afholdt ved redaktionens slutning tør vi allerede nu fastslå, at venstrefløjen i USA fik afgørende betydning på valget.
 
Jesper Høi Kanne: USA: Antikapitalisme på dagsordenen
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 184, aug 00 – side 4
Note: Stemningsskiftet i USA mod venstre ses ikke kun ved de anti-kapitalistiske protester i Seattle og Washington. En kendt forsvarer af forbrugerrettigheder, Ralph Nader, stiller op til præsidentvalget for det Grønne Parti.
 
USA: Arbejderne viser styrke
Socialistisk Revy nr. 6, aug 98 – side 4
Note: “USA minder måske endnu ikke om Frankrig, som hvert eller hvert andet år lammes af en strejke, men pludselig er de amerikanske fagforeninger gået på gaden på en måde, der ikke er set i årtier.” – New York Times
 
Sharon Smith: USA på vrangen: Grønt lys for gramserne
Socialistisk Revy nr. 5, jun 98 – side 16
Note: De fleste åndede lettet op, da Paula Jones' sexanklager mod Bill Clinton i sidste måned blev afvist af retten. Amerikanerne havde hurtigt nået mætningspunktet med mediernes utrættelige besættelse af de malende detaljer omkring Clintons seksuelle eskapader. -- Men afvisningen af Paula Jones' sag om seksuelle overgreb, gav en stor sejr til alle sexistiske chefer.
 
Sharon Smith: USA på vrangen: Caterpillars klapjagt
Socialistisk Revy nr. 4, maj 98 – side 26
Note: Den 22. marts besluttede 12.500 medlemmer af fagforeningen UAW (United Auto Workers) ansat på Caterpillar, et multinationalt selskab, der fabrikerer gravredskaber, at afslutte den længste arbejdskamp i USA's historie.
 
Sharon Smith: Fra Guds eget land: Den herskende klasse på hævntogt
Socialistisk Revy nr. 1, feb 98 – side 10
Note: Teamster-strejken sidste sommer blandt medarbejderne i det store amerikanske postfirma UPS, betød ikke alene amerikanske arbejderes sejr for for første gang i 25 år. Den indvarslede også arbejderbevægelsens genopståen. I september afskaffede det største forbund i USA, AFL-CIO endelig sit forbud mod kommunisters organiserering indenfor fagforeningerne. Dette forbud har hæmmet millitante arbejdere lige siden McCarthys hekseprocesser mod kommunisterne i 1950´erne.
 
UPS: Sejr til amerikanske arbejdere
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 165, aug 97 – side 3
Note: United Parcel Service-arbejdernes sejr i USA viser, at arbejderne ikke finder sig i mere, og at overklassen har grund til at være nervøs.
 
USA: Den vigtigste strejke i ti år (UPS)
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 164, aug 97 – side 3
Note: En massiv strejke i United Parcel Service rejser direkte spørgsmålet om profit eller arbejdsforhold. En sejr kan betyde et brud med tyve års aggressiv arbejdsgiverpolitik.
 
Gitte Dion Pedersen: USA: Budgetkrig slagter de fattige
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 126, jan 96 – side 3
Note: Slagsmålet om USAs statsbudget handler om én ting: Hvor mange milliarder de rige vil stjæle fra de fattige.
 
Phil Gasper: Cruel and unusual punishment: the politics of crime in the United States
International Socialism Journal nr. 66, mar 95 – side 55
Note: Law and order have been the watchwords of the right in the industrialised countries for a generation. Social Democratic and labour parties seem to have accepted the right's terms of debate-just at the moment when the United States is experiencing a catastrophic failure in law enforcement. American socialist Phil Gasper provides a devastating expose.
 
Jan Hoby: USAs krig mod de fattige
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 112, feb 95 – side 7
Note: En højrebølge ruller frem i USA. Den er blevet døbt Den Republikanske Revolution. Men samtidig vokser modstanden.
 
Ulla Nielsen: USA: Højreskred
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 111, jan 95 – side 6
Note: USA er på vej mod højre, hedder det i medierne i disse dage. Sandt er det, at begge kongressens kamre efter det sidste valg for første gang i mange mange år har republikansk flertal.
 
Jan Hoby: USA: Fører krig mod fattige
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 107, sep 94 – side 6
Note: Bill Clintons meget omtalte “krig mod kriminalitet” er i virkeligheden en krig mod de fattige.
 
Jan Hoby: Clintons krig mod de fattige
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 107, sep 94 – side 11
Note: Clintons politik har været angreb på fattige og arbejderes rettigheder. Men tusinder af arbejdere i strejke giver håb om forandring.
 
Anne Mette Ougaard: "This land was made for you and me" (USA efter Los Angeles-oprøret)
International Socialisme nr. 2, jun 92 – side 7
Note: For mindre end 3 år siden fejrede de vestlige regeringer med USA i spidsen markedsøkonomien og den vestlige kapitalismes sejr over "kommunismen" og "socialismen". De østeuropæiske regimer blev knust af folkets oprør mod manglende demokratiske rettigheder, mod uretfærdigheder og økonomisk elendighed. I slutningen af april i år fik Bush-administrationen den samme kraft at føle uden for deres egne vinduer, som sendte den bureaukratiske klasse i Øst væk fra den politiske magt. De fattige og sultne i USA's storbyer ville ikke længere finde sig i racistisk og økonomisk undertrykkelse.
 
Sharon Smith: Twilight of the American Dream
International Socialism Journal nr. 54, mar 92 – side 3
Note: American workers once dreamt that every generation would see its children grow up more prosperous, better housed, better educated and healthier than those who went before. Now that dream lies in ruins as the US economy pitches into a recession so deep that many are comparing it to the Depression of the 1930s.
Sharon Smith of the American International Socialist Organisation examines the social crisis in the US-the poverty and sinking wages, the inner city decay and the inadequate health service, the racism and the attack on the labour movement. `Twilight of the American Dream' shows how class is re-entering the vocabulary of US politics as George Bush, only a year ago the hero of the Gulf War, sees his presidency begin to unravel.
