John Molyneux: Editorial (Irish Marxist Review 2014 Vol 3 Number 11): The Great People’s Revolt

11

1

dec 14

 

The radicalisation of the Irish working class is developing apace. As we have argued in previous editorials it was already evident in the 2011 General Election which saw the decimation of Fianna Fail and the beginnings of inroads for the United Left Alliance.

 

Kieran Allen: The Politics of Sinn Fein: Rhetoric and Reality

11

dec 14

 

A recent opinion poll indicated that Sinn Fein is now neck and neck with Fine Gael to be the majority party in the South. In Dublin, it is already the largest party, commanding 26 percent of the vote. This transformation is remarkable. In the early nineties, Sinn Fein was almost a pariah party in the South. Its members were visited regularly by the Special Branch, their voices were banned from RTE and its activists were vilified by the wider media.

 

Michael Taft: Where We Are Now

dec 14

 

The economy is statistically moving out of recession. This can be defined as the economy returning to its pre-recession levels. Of course, this doesn't tell how us any particular category is doing: domestic demand, labour and capital, income and occupational groups, or economic sectors such as industry, retail or finance. In this article we will take a tour of some of these sub-categories to see who is running ahead and who is lagging behind, who is winning and who is losing; in short, what kind of recovery are we experiencing.

Peadar O’Grady: Stop Making Sense: Alienation and Mental Health

dec 14

 

In the past ten years or so there is evidence of a very welcome, growing body of criticism of current approaches to mental health from journalists, academics, healthworkers and service users, individually and as organised groups.

 

John Molyneux: A Visit to the Museum – notes on Culture and Barbarism

11

48

dec 14

 

For without exception the cultural treasures he surveys have an origin which he cannot contemplate without horror. They owe their existence not only to the efforts of the great minds and talents who have created them, but also to the anonymous toil of their contemporaries. There is no document of civilization which is not at the same time a document of barbarism. – Walter Benjamin, Theses on the Philosophy of History

 

Paul O’Brien: John Redmond: A Footnote in History

11

dec 14

 

Dermot Meleady in his biography of John Redmond concludes that ‘rarely is the life’s work of a public person so comprehensively erased by history.’ Redmond is the forgotten man of Irish history, a footnote to the events that led to Independence in 1922. And this may have remained the case except for the small matter of the upcoming hundredth anniversary of the 1916 Rising. Given the rise in support for Sinn Fein, how does a rightwing conservative government celebrate the violent revolutionary upheavals that led to the founding of the state, without handing a propaganda coup to Sinn Fein?

11

dec 14

 

With a new feminist movement sweeping the world, debates around women’s oppression, inequality and sexuality are once again topical on the left and beyond.

dec 14

 

This book gives a study of a critical region in Ireland during the revolutionary years 1917 – 1923. The question of the fate of Tyrone in those years was at the Heart of whether Unionism had a future and whether partition could have been avoided.

 

Conor Kennelly: Review: Lawrence Fenton, Frederick Douglass in Ireland: The Black O’Connell

Frederick Douglass, the great African-American Abolitionist, visited Ireland in 1845. Douglass, an ex slave himself, who had experienced all the brutality of chattel slavery, described his experiences in two autobiographies and lectured widely to mass Abolitionist audiences throughout the Northern States of the US.

 

Brian O’Boyle: Review: Alex Callinicos, Deciphering Capital

11

dec 14

 

In Deciphering Capital, Alex Callinicos adds an important contribution to the list of commentators who see Capital as the crowning achievement of political economy.
