John Molyneux: Reviews – Books: Chris Harman: The Fire Last Time

325

25

maj 08

 

Of all the articles, features, memoirs and books devoted to 1968, The Fire Last Time: 1968 and After, by Chris Harman, the editor of International Socialism journal, is still, by some distance, the best.

 

Anne Alexander: Reviews – Books: Patrick Cockburn: Muqtada al-Sadr and the Fall of Iraq

325

26

maj 08

 

"The most dangerous man in Iraq" is how Newsweek described Muqtada al-Sadr in December 2006. The young Shia cleric has certainly been cast in many contradictory roles. Is he a leader of Iraqi Arab resistance to the US occupation, or a tool of Iran? A commander of sectarian death squads or a force for Iraqi unity?

 

Charlotte Bence: Reviews – Books: Parag Khanna: The Second World

325

26

maj 08

 

Parag Khanna argues in The Second World that the moment of US supremacy is over, and that it is now the allegiances and actions of countries in what he terms "the Second World" (Eastern Europe, Central Asia, South America, the Middle East and East Asia) that will decide whether China, the European Union or the US dominates the 21st century.

 

Kevin Devine: Reviews – Books: Ed Moloney: Paisley

325

This book is the one of the best places to start when it comes to an assessment of the role in the Northern Ireland peace process of both Ian Paisley and his former deputy, Peter Robinson – who has just replaced Paisley as first minister.

 

Ingrid Lamprecht: Reviews – Books: Fadhil al-Azzawi: Cell Block Five

325

maj 08

Charlie Hore: Reviews – Books: Floris-Jan van Luyn: A Floating City of Peasants

325

28

maj 08

 

China's economic boom is largely powered by migrant workers, peasants who have moved to the cities in the largest migration in human history. Currently there are between 120 and 150 million migrants in the cities, yet very little is known about their lives and ambitions, which makes this book particularly welcome.

 

Ian Allinson: Reviews – Books: Labour and the Challenges of Globalization (Eds: Andreas Bieler, Ingemar Lindberg and Devan Pillay)

325

28

maj 08

 

Modern capitalist agriculture employs a few tens of millions, while 3 billion peasants still make up about half the world's population. A peasant's productivity is a fraction of 1 percent of that of a "modern" farm worker.

 

Nick Howard: Reviews – Books: Philip Hensher: The Northern Clemency

325

29

maj 08

 

The Northern Clemency is a novel set very firmly in the era of Thatcherism against the backdrop of the miners' strike, privatisation and the selling off of council housing. It recounts the histories of two Sheffield families, both of middle management class.

 

Andrew Stone: Reviews – Books: Nick Turse: The Complex

325

29

maj 08

 

After two terms in the White House, a Republican president did something profoundly unexpected: he denounced the "military-industrial complex" dominating political life. In the reasonable expectation that George W Bush will not be expanding on Dwight Eisenhower's insight in his own closing address to the nation, Nick Turse has stepped into the breach by producing a damning and well-researched dossier on the ever more pervasive "complex" of the 21st century.

 

Esme Choonara: Reviews – Books: Ronan Bennett: Zugzwang

325

30

maj 08

 

Set in 1914 in St Petersburg, Russia, the novel conjures up a city rife with plots, double-crossing and revolutionary ferment. In the background is the looming threat of the First World War. The Tsar's secret police are everywhere and anti-Semitism is rife – with Jewish people uniformly regarded by the state as potential terrorists.

 

Christophe Chataigné: Reviews – Books: Victor Serge: Unforgiving Years

325

30

maj 08

 

The life of Victor Serge was fascinating. Serge was also a great writer as Unforgiving Years shows. Available for the first time in English (it was first published in French 25 years after his death) this novel is written in a style that shows how revolution impacts on every facet of life.

maj 08

 

World food system – war on terror novel – Pullman prequel – graphic Kafka

 

Martin Smith: Reviews – Culture: Scenes of real America

325

31

maj 08

 

In their quest to see some of the best views of San Francisco, tourists dive into the lift that takes them to the top of the Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill and rush past a foyer full of beautiful murals and a wooden panelled door enclosed by frescos: Ray Boynton's Animal Force and Machine Force. It's a real shame, because behind the door lies a series of murals that line the concrete stairwell to the top.

 

Emma Bircham: Reviews – Film: Terror's Advocate (Director: Barbet Schroeder)

325

32

maj 08

 

What do Algerian freedom fighter Djamila Bouhired, Carlos the Jackal, and Klaus Barbie, the Butcher of Lyon, have in common? Other than the lawyer who acted in their defence, arguably very little. That lawyer is Jacques Verges, a man who has made a career from defending the "indefensible" on an international scale.

 

Stewart Halforty: Reviews – Film: Stop-Loss (Director: Kimberly Peirce)

325

32

maj 08

 

Stop-Loss follows US soldiers when they return home after a tour in Iraq. Ostensibly a film about the tactic of extending the soldiers' tour of duty indefinitely, it deals with the challenges faced by soldiers on their return. The advice they are given by officers on their return includes "don't drink and drive" and "don't beat your wife".

 

Alys Zaerin: Reviews – Film: Persepolis (Directors: Vincent Paronnaud and Marjane Satrapi)

325

33

maj 08

 

Persepolis is an animated adaptation of Marjane Satrapi's graphic novels which trails the writer's life growing up in Iran during the revolutionary 1970s and the war-torn 1980s.

 

Patrick Ward: Reviews – Film: Where in the World is Osama bin Laden? (Director: Morgan Spurlock)

325

33

maj 08

 

Morgan Spurlock's big break was the excellent 2004 film Super Size Me, in which he acted as a human guinea pig, living (only just) on McDonald's fast food. The beauty of that film was that all Spurlock had to do was eat the McRubbish and show how it affected him. Where in the World is Osama bin Laden? uses a similar formula.

 

Jacqui Freeman: Reviews – Film: Caramel (Director: Nadine Labaki)

325

33

maj 08

 

Set in Beirut, Caramel explores the contrast between the supposedly "open, free and emancipated" nature of present-day Lebanon and the reality of life for five working class women.

Nick Grant: Review – Books: Mike Cole: Marxism and Educational Theory (Web only)

325

 

maj 08

 

In this idiosyncratic mix of personal memoir, agitational guide and theoretical history, Mike Cole sets out to explain precisely what capitalism expects of its education systems, and underscore the value of Marxism in challenging those priorities.
