In 1981 the joyous celebrations that greeted François Mitterran’ds election as president, on a radical reform programme, were an expression of widespread hope of significant change. Almost exactly 31 years later the mood following François Hollande’s victory over Nicolas Sarkozy could not have been more different. Hollande won on a modest promise of “fair austerity”.

Occupy Wall Street (OWS), and the Occupy movement that rapidly spread across the country in late September 2011, marked a watershed moment in the re-emergence of mass struggle and radical politics in the United States. In a matter of weeks, decades of accumulated bitterness and discontent found political expression and began to reshape national politics.

Nigel Harris: Characterising the period

135

137

jul 12

 

It used to be that identifying the central contradiction of a historical period was seen by Marxists as the linchpin of all subsidiary analyses and strategies. But the general decay of theoretical concerns has made this unfashionable.

 

Colin Barker: Twenty five years of revolution

135

jul 12

 

It is almost a quarter of a century since Revolutionary Rehearsals was first published in 1987. The book focused on a number of important cases over the previous 20 years, in which a very particular possibility seemed to open up: namely that mass workers’ movements might challenge for state power.

David Campbell and Mark Durden, Variable Capital (Liverpool University Press, 2008), £28.50
The starting point for Variable Capital was an exhibition of the same name held at the Liverpool Bluecoat gallery in 2008. The book is not a catalogue though. It takes a selection of pieces, mostly by artists who took part in the exhibition but not all, and uses them to discuss various themes, for example, Hollywood, sex and recycling.

Sasha Lilley (ed), Capital and its Discontents (PM Press, 2011), £14.99
This book is a collection of interviews with left wing intellectuals conducted by its editor Sasha Lilley. One of its strengths is that Lilley is constantly concerned with what the left should be doing and how the ideas of those interviewed can be married with radical action.

SS Prawer, Karl Marx and World Literature (Verso, 2011), £16.99
In a letter to his daughter Laura dated 11 April 1868, Marx wrote, “You’ll certainly fancy, my dear child, that I am very fond of books, because I trouble you with them at so unseasonable a time. But you would be quite mistaken. I am a machine, condemned to devour them and then throw them, in a changed form, on the dunghill of history.”
