International Socialism Journal nr. 144, okt 14 – side 177
Note: A review of Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin, The Making of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy of American Empire (Verso, 2012), £20

Socialist Worker nr. 2238, feb 11 – side 4
Note: Last week the “liberal” Israeli daily Haaretz carried a piece by one of its best-known columnists, Ari Shavit. “Two huge processes are happening right before our eyes,” he writes. “One is the Arab liberation revolution. The second process is the acceleration of the decline of the West.”
Ken Olende: Book review: Black star rising
International Socialism Journal nr. 123, jul 09 – side 213
Note: Jeffrey B Perry, Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918 (Colombia University, 2008), £27
Hubert Harrison was a towering figure in US black and socialist politics in the early years of the 20th century. He was known as the “father of Harlem radicalism” but has now almost disappeared from the history books. Jeffrey B Perry has already edited a collection of Harrison’s writings entitled A Hubert Harrison Reader (Wesleyan University, 2001). He is owed a serious debt of thanks for this, the first part of his exhaustive two-part biography, using Harrison’s own journals and a sympathetic understanding of the time. It rescues a fascinating historical figure from obscurity, and allows us to see how far ahead of its time much of his analysis was.

Note: USA er den absolut stærkeste økonomiske og militære magt i verden. USA forsvarer sine interesser overalt – i Afghanistan, i Columbia, i Mellemøsten. Og det med en brutalitet, som sætter profit højere end menneskeliv.
Margit Johansen: Oprustning og krig
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 191, mar 01 – side 4
Note: Krig og ustabilitet er konsekvenserne, hvis USA får etableret sit missilforsvarssystem. For USA’s egentlig hensigt med det er, at gøre sig selv så usårlig, at de med militærmagt kan sætte deres vilje igennem over hele verden, uden de behøver at frygte gengældelsesangreb.

Ahmed Shawki: Black liberation and socialism in the United States
International Socialism Journal nr. 47, jun 90 – side 3
Note: The race relations industry has never been as powerful as it is today – the number of Black professionals, Black businesses, Black superstars and Black politicians never so numerous-but the vast majority of Blacks are still poverty stricken and many are the victims of brutal racist violence. The prosperity of the few hasn’t altered the oppression of the many.
Yet even among those who reject the idea that working within the system can end racism there are very real differences. Many Black militants hope that separatism and Black nationalism will prove more effective than attempts at reform. But, argues Ahmed Shawki of the American International Socialist Organisation, the record shows that Black nationalism is a flawed tradition. He looks at the fight for Black liberation from slavery to the present and defends the continued relevance of the Marxist tradition.
