Description

'There is no socialism after liberation, socialism is the process through which liberation is won.' Each of the essays in Communities of Resistance acts as a critical reaffirmation of socialist politics as the context for questions of race and resistance. The left itself is under scrutiny here - from a black perspective. A series of powerful interventions covers many of the issues which have confronted radical politics in the 1980s: inner-city uprisings, the demand for Black Sections in the Labour Party, local government anti-racism, the move to a common European market. This collection includes incisive critiques of contemporary Marxism ('All that Melts into Air is Solid: The Hokum of "New Times"'), of post-colonial development, and of the Eurocentric assessment of imperialism.
