Books Info:

Dissident Marxism free pdf The past years have witnessed the birth of a new politics -- anti-capitalist, libertarian and anti-war. Its advocates reject the single-issue politics of the 1980s and 1990s, preferring to see the system as a totality, a world ripe for revolutionary change. But where do today's dissidents come from? David Renton argues that the roots of today's anti-capitalist movement can be found in the life and work of an earlier generation of socialist revolutionaries who shared a commitment to socialism from below: the Soviet poet Mayakovsky, the Marxist philosopher Karl Korsch, historians Edward Thompson and Dona Torr, Georges Henein, Paul Baran, Paul Sweezy, Walter Rodney, Samir Amin and others. He explores their lives and thinking, and asks if the new anti-capitalist movement may give birth to another such left-wing generation.
