Noel Douglas: Book: David King: Red Star over Russia

334

2

mar 09

 

“Red Star over Russia is a fast-forward visual history of the Soviet Union. It is a heavy bombardment of posters, photographs, graphics and text depicting the revolutionary upheavals of 1917, the Civil War that followed, the defeat of the Bolsheviks and their ideals in the wake of the catastrophic rise of Stalinism.”
So runs the beginning of Davis King’s introduction to this superb new book.

 

Editorial

mar 09

 

Times of deep crisis shake society to its core. All assumptions and certainties of past years, and sometimes decades, can dissolve in days. The idea of nationalising banks is now common; house repossessions are predicted to rise to 75,000 this year; and job losses are spiralling.

 

Barry Pavier: Sri Lanka – the dead end of nationalism

The final stage of the Sri Lankan army's offensive to capture territory held by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) is approaching, with thousands of civilians being driven into an enclave on the north east coast.

The desertion of New Labour's welfare reform adviser Sir David Freud to the Tories highlighted how little there is to choose between the main parties' policies.

The Israeli general election has resulted in Benjamin Netanyahu of the Likud Party being invited to form a new government.

"We managed to topple the government using the best of non-violent protests, civil disobedience and political satire," – 24 year old receptionist Guðjón Heiðar Valgarðsson encapsulates what many of the protesters felt when on 26 January the then prime minister, Geir Hilmar Haarde, announced the resignation of his government.

"Use of foreign labour set to rise six-fold under SNP", shouts a press release from the Scottish Labour Party.

 

Lindsey German: In my opinion: The other occupation

mar 09

 

Every mass campaign has its symbols. For me the most moving of the Gaza campaign were the dolls dressed in bloodstained baby clothes, carried by children or teenagers, brought up to the front of demos and cradled in people's arms.

 

Pete Wearden: Letters: Wallace and Darwin

334

8

mar 09

 

In an excellent article on the development of the theory of natural selection and its social and political context, it was very welcome to see Alfred Russel Wallace given his due place (Socialist Review, February 2009).

 

Nick Grant: Letters: A class traitor?

334

mar 09

 

I recently read Stephen Jay Gould's essay on "Natural Selection and the Human Brain", from his collection, The Panda's Thumb.

mar 09

 

In his review of Darwin's Sacred Cause, by Adrian Desmond and James Moore, Terry Sullivan (Books, Socialist Review, February 2009) gives some praise to the book, but ends by saying that it is not totally convincing.

 

Andrew Stone: Letters: Not that long coming

334

8

mar 09

 

I am puzzled by Millie Fry's statement that in 1964 "the civil rights movement had yet to explode onto the scene" (Culture, Socialist Review, February 2009). The Civil Rights Act signed that year by Lyndon Johnson was one index of a long, hard-fought struggle.

 

GM Tamás: Letter from ...: Hungary

334

mar 09

 

The economic crisis has led to politicians blaming the poorest for society's problems, and the rise of the far right.

 

Martin Smith: Economic crisis and job losses: Who's to blame?

334

10

mar 09

 

Nationalism is always a dead end for the working class movement, argues Martin Smith, after the wildcat strikes that demanded "British jobs for British workers"

 

Robert Jackson: Agreements under threat

334

13

mar 09

 

There are 267 different firms employed at Lindsey oil refinery alone. Is European law keeping bosses in line with national agreements on pay and conditions?

 

Hsiao-Hung Pai: Lindsey Oil: Views from the migrant workers

334

mar 09

 

Francesco and Gianluca, like their 98 Italian colleagues housed on a barge at Grimsby Fish Docks, had arrived in late January on a four-month contract to work at the French oil giant, Total, at Lindsey oil refinery in Immingham.

 

Judith Orr: Lehman Sisters?

334

15

mar 09

 

A steady stream of recent articles blames "macho behaviour" for the financial crisis. Judith Orr challenges the assumption that women would do it better.

 

Donie Fell: Union-made: Crystal clear intentions (Waterford Crystal occupation)

334

17

mar 09

 

We're in occupation to stop our factory from being shut down. The glass industry in Waterford is making a profit but not enough to satisfy corporate greed.

 

Judith Orr + Sabby Sagall: Interview: Playing a part against injustice

334

18

mar 09

 

Oscar winning actor Julie Christie talks to Sabby Sagall and Judith Orr about her work and political commitment and how she feels about the media treatment of women in the public eye in the age of celebrity culture.

 

Chris Harman: In perspective: Slump, boom and climate change

334

21

mar 09

 

From the European Union to Barack Obama, promises have been made to give priority to a "green agenda". In reality, they are using the recession to go into reverse.

 

Jim Wolfreys: New party to unite the French left

334

23

mar 09

 

The birth of the New Anti-capitalist Party in France is a welcome development for those opposed to neoliberalism. Over 9,000 people from different political backgrounds have already joined up. Jim Wolfreys reports from its founding congress and looks at its prospects and challenges.

 

Ian Birchall: A to Z of Socialism: U is for united front

334

24

mar 09

 

In 1919 the Communist International was born. Throughout Europe and beyond new Communist Parties were founded, generally by splits in mass reformist parties. As anyone who has been through a split knows, the process left behind enormous political and personal bitterness. Yet within a couple of years the Communist International was urging its members to form united fronts with the reformist parties.

 

Jonathan Neale: Book Review: Round-up on Afghanistan

334

25

mar 09

 

The Afghan resistance is spreading and winning. The resistance has largely cut off the Khyber Pass, the main road from Pakistan, and has effective control of half the country.

 

Mike Gonzalez: Book Review: Roberto Bolaño: 2666

334

26

mar 09

 

This is a bewildering book. Like its predecessor, The Savage Detectives, it is an exhausting journey backwards and forwards across the globe, in and out of bars and brothels, leaping from culture to culture.

 

Joseph Choonara: Book Review: John Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff: The Great Financial Crisis

334

26

mar 09

 

Monthly Review (MR) has been a leading journal of the US left since 1949. In its pages writers such as Paul Baran, Paul Sweezy and Harry Magdoff set out a distinct analysis of capitalism as it existed after the Second World War. This short book collects several recent MR essays by John Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff, along with two original chapters, that continue this task – with particular reference to the current economic crisis.

 

Mike Simons: Book Review: Francis Beckett and David Henke: Marching to the Fault Line

334

27

mar 09

 

Marching to the Fault Line is a fascinating, if flawed, account of the great miners' strike of 1984-85. Francis Beckett and David Henke have unearthed important government material from the strike, and had access to the diaries and memories of a range of senior Labour Party and trade union figures for the book.

 

Charlotte Bence: Book Review: Hans Fallada: Alone In Berlin

334

27

mar 09

 

If standards on this magazine were not, thankfully, significantly higher, this review would merely be a gushing appeal to all readers to read this book as soon as it comes out, pass it on and tell everyone you know to do the same.

 

Anindya Bhattacharyya: Book Review: Alain Badiou: The Meaning of Sarkozy

334

28

mar 09

 

Philosophers, it is well known, only interpret the world, when the point is to change it. France's Alain Badiou is a rare exception to this rule – a philosopher who tries to do both. Published in France in 2007, this book was conceived as a polemical response to the election of Nicolas Sarkozy as the country's president in May that year. It proved to be a surprise hit.

 

Peter Dwyer: Book Review: The Bases of Empire

334

29

mar 09

 

This book details how military bases, the springboard for US militarism, have changed continuously throughout history in relation to the needs of imperialism and the resistance to it.

 

Judith Orr: Book Review: Nechama Tec: Defiance

334

29

mar 09

 

This is the book on which the recent movie of the same name was based. Like the film it has its weaknesses. But the film helped reveal this extraordinary story of a group of Jewish partisans who defied the Nazis and survived deep in the forest of Western Belorussia during the Second World War.

John Molyneux: Culture Column: Mark Wallinger's horse of another colour

334

30

mar 09

 

The selection of Mark Wallinger's proposal for a giant white horse for Ebbsfleet international station in Kent is an event of some cultural significance.

 

Tom Behan: Film Review: Il Divo (Dir.: Paolo Sorrentino)

334

31

mar 09

 

This is an Italian film about an Italian politician, Giulio Andreotti, and as such risks travelling badly – which would be a shame.

 

Louis Bayman: Film Review: Wendy and Lucy (Dir.: Kelly Reichardt)

334

31

mar 09

 

Or "One Woman and her Dog", as this film could alternatively be called. The title refers to the one loving relationship in the industrially depressed Oregon in which Wendy and her canine companion Lucy are stuck for the length of this film.

 

Jess Edwards: Film Review: The Class (Dir.: Laurent Cantet)

334

mar 09

 

The Class is about a class of teenage students and their teacher in a French school. Through the interaction of the students with their teacher, Francois Marin, the film explores many aspects of the French education system.

 

Eamonn Kelly: DVD Review: The End of America (Dir.: Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg)

Gareth Jenkins: Obiturary: Edward Upward (1903-2009)

334

34

mar 09

 

Edward Upward, the last of the 1930s generation of left-wing British writers, has died at the age of 105. It is astonishing to think that someone who was in his late 20s when the Wall Street Crash heralded the Great Depression should live on to see an equally deep crisis begin to convulse the system once again.
