  8. The Case for Grassroots Archives 
    Resource Type: Article

    Grassroots archives play a valuable role in what has been called "the battle of memory". People's history projects such as grassroots archives preserve and share stories of resistance, hidden histories, and alternative visions.
  9. Center for Socialist History
    Resource Type: Website
    A non-profit corporation founded to promote research and publication in the field of the history of socialism. We strongly believe that (to paraphrase) socialists who don't know their own history are doomed to repeat all the old mistakes. And the history of socialism shows that they do. The socialist movement is an amnesiac: socialists know little about where they are coming from no wonder they hardly know where they are going. The fact is that little work or publication goes on in the field by socialists; most is by nonsocialists or antisocialists. They too can serve; but socialists concern with their own history is not of an academic character. A living movement has to know the lessons of the past.
  10. Neil Chacker, 1942-2004
    Against The Current vol. 113

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    During the Vietnam war, one Colonel Reberry at Fort Lewis, Washington, posted a threatening notice forbidding the distribution of material that would promote "disloyalty and discontent."

  11. C.L.R. James and Anti-/Postcolonialism
    Against The Current vol. 90

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    C.L.R. James' proclamation in Beyond A Boundary (1963, a classic study of cricket and colonialism), after almost three decades of radical intellectual work, that “Thackeray, not Marx, bears the heaviest responsibility for me,” is a sententious political statement. It abounds with meanings, standing at once as an alluring paradox and a striking truism.

  16. Cuba, the United States and the Left
    Against The Current vol. 89

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    The nationalist anti-imperialist revolution of the long beards has lasted forty-one years. It was never a socialist revolution. The Moncada combatants were not socialists, neither were those in the Sierra Maestra (with few exceptions), nor the Cuban people who one morning woke up to hear the news through the radio and from the mouth of Fidel Castro, that in response to the imperialist attacks, the island had become "socialist."
  17. Deeply Re-examining Marxism
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1998
    Having just read Michael Lowy's “The Centrality of Self-emancipation for a Critical Marxism”, I agree strongly with many of Lowy's remarks about the next steps for those who consider themselves to be followers of Karl Marx, now that the downfall of the Stalinist bureaucracy and its devotees has provided us with a wonderful opportunity for the re-birth of communist ideas.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    “At least 10 Palestinians were killed in Gaza on Sunday by Israeli fire,” today’s New York Times reports as I write this review, “bringing the number of Palestinians killed since Wednesday… to more than 100.” One Palestinian in Gaza laments, “There is an attack every five or ten minutes. It keeps our nerves on edge and our senses strained. There is so much rage at what is happening; especially the scenes of murdered children and babies.” According to the Israeli human-rights group, B’Tselem, approximately half of the dead were unarmed civilians, and a quarter were children.

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2013
    An introduction to European socialism, which arose in the maelstrom of the industrial and democratic revolutions launched in the eighteenth century. Striving for sweeping social, economic, cultural, and political change, socialists were a diverse lot. However, they were united by principles asserting the social and political equality of all people.
  25. Facing Fascism in Europe
    Against The Current vol. 84

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    Adolf Hitler's rise to power in 1933, and the Nazis' rapid destruction of Germany's Social Democratic and Communist parties, shook the European left to its core. For many socialists and communists, the total defeat of two of the world's largest and best-organized workers' parties was grim evidence of the immediate need to set aside obstacles dividing them and to join together in the fight against fascism.

    Review published in Against The Current Vol. 95

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    For all intents and purposes, I discovered the Socialist Register during the early '90s. When I say "discovered" I, of course, do not mean that I was the first to come across it. Rather, having heard of it for years, I actually read it.

  34. The "Labor Aristocracy" and Working-Class Struggles: Consciousness in Flux, Part 2
    Against The Current vol. 124

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Whatever the theoretical and empirical problems with the economics of the labor aristocracy thesis, its defenders still claim that well paid workers have generally been more reformist and conservative in their politics than lower paid workers. They point to the example of mostly white New York City construction workers ("hardhats") attacking antiwar demonstrators in the Spring of 1970; and contrast them with the militancy and progressive politics of some of the recent "Justice for Janitors" campaigns.
  35. Liberation, Then What?

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006

  37. Marx Myths & Legends
    Resource Type: Website
    A critical reading of the work of Karl Marx now requires us to lay to one side the myths and legends which have obscured his ideas over the past one hundred and twenty years- distortions and misinterpretations to which perhaps no thinker has been more prone. In one sense, this is not difficult, because there is enough of his writing preserved, albeit in translation, for any of us to read Marx in his own words. Most however have been unwilling or unable to do this. The fifty volumes of the Marx-Engels Collected Works are forbidding, and when beginning as one almost inevitably does, with the received wisdom surrounding Marx’s name, there is much to discourage a reader from seriously taking on the task of understanding Marx. The aim of this project is thus to begin to challenge some of those myths in order to clear the way for a fresh reading of Marx that will hopefully be less prone to the distortions, misunderstandings and blatant falsehoods that have so far surrounded Marx. We believe that what Marx had to say remains of considerable relevance to an understanding of problems we face today, but that a reading of Marx now must maintain a critical caution which does not merely reproduce received ideas- positive or negative- about Marx’s work.
  38. The Marxism of the First International
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1924
    On 28 September 1864 it was decided at an international meeting of workers in London to found the International Workingmen's Association. On 25 July 1867, Karl Marx wrote the preface to the first edition of the first volume of Capital. Within one single period of history, in the 1860s, both aspects of Marxism attained their full realization: the new autonomous science of the working class attained its developed theoretical form in literature at the same time as the new autonomous movement of the proletariat achieved its practical form in history.

  40. The Meaning of Venezuela's Bolivarian Revolution
    Against The Current vol. 113

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    A feature of revolutions is that they keep coming around in unexpected ways and in unexpected places. Who would have dared predict the eruption that was Seattle in November 1999, when the powers behind neoliberal globalization seemed completely incontestable?
  41. Morris Slavin: 1913-2006
    Against The Current vol. 124

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Morris Slavin, a historian of the French Revolution and one of the last remaining veterans of the American Trotskyist movement of the early 1930s, died on February 6 in Denver, Colorado, at the age of 92. The vast majority of Slavin's years were spent in Youngstown, Ohio, but his childhood took place in Russia.
  42. The Myth of the Labor Aristocracy, Part 1
    Against The Current vol. 123

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    The persistence of reformism and outright conservatism among workers, especially in the imperialist centers of North America, Western Europe and Japan, has long confounded revolutionary socialists. The broadest outlines of Marxist theory tell us that capitalism creates it own "gravediggers" - a class of collective producers with no interest in the maintenance of private ownership of the means of production. The capitalist system's drive to maximize profits should force workers to struggle against their employers, progressively broaden their struggle and eventually overthrow the system and replace it with their democratic self-rule.
  43. Notes from a Revolution Dying
    Against The Current vol. 134

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    In June 1922, five years on from the Russian Revolution, a group of Moscow communists gathered to discuss a letter by Vladimir Petrzhek, an auto worker, tendering his resignation from the communist (or Bolshevik) party. Petrzhek was one of the worker communists who swelled the party’s ranks during the civil war of 1918-19, when the communist “Reds” had defended the revolution from the western-supported “White” generals.
  44. An October for Us, for Russia and for the Whole World

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    This appeal from Russian intellectuals and artists on the 90th anniversary of the Russian October Revolution comes to us from veteran leftists, social democrats, artists and even children of Left Oppositionists, most of them politically active at least since the Gorbachev years of glasnost and perestroika. It has been abridged here for space reasons.
  45. On Criticizing Marx
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1998
    MICHAEL LOWY'S ARTICLE in ATC 71 was titled “For a Critical Marxism.”This is obviously a misprint. The original title could only have been “Where Marx Went Wrong.”

Present were prominent West European Marxist intellectuals and trade unionists, and key socialist oppositionists to the regimes in Eastern Europe and the USSR. This book records their speeches at what must be one of the broadest based conferences ever held on such a topic.
  49. Ralph Nader and the Legacy of Revolt (Part 2)
    Against The Current vol. 89

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    Our electoral dilemma today derives from a political realignment a hundred years ago, when a faction of populists joined in fusion with William Jennings Bryan and the “Free Silver” Democratic Party. After 1896 the two major parties evolved into what they have remained, electoral machines organized from the top down, from elites to ward heelers and courthouse gangs, as vote-catching operations for factions of big business.
  50. Ralph Nader and the Legacy of Revolt (Part 3)
    Against The Current vol. 90

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    Ralph Nader has a complex relationship with the historical currents of change before World War I (populism, socialism and progressivism), but it may be his relationship to the Communism of the mid-twentieth century that has shaped his view of reform. Nader readily accepted the prevailing view that the Soviet regime exemplified the definition of socialism, that is, a concentration of bureaucratic power based on government ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution.
  51. Reasoning Otherwise
    Leftists and the People's Enlightenment in Canada 1890 - 1920

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008
    Examines the people and events that led to the rise of the left in Canada from 1890 to 1920, and highlights how a new way of looking at the world based on theories of evolution transformed struggles around class, religion, gender, and race, and culminates in a new interpretation of the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919.

  53. A Reluctant Memoir of the '50s and '60s
    Against The Current vol. 134

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    I have been asked to write a memoir that would give a sense of the old left/new left realities of the 1950s and ‘60s. That seems quite odd to me (why would I be writing such a thing?), until I look in the mirror and see this old guy looking back at me. As I reflect, it does seem to me that I went through a lot of experience, met a lot of people, and perhaps learned from all that…So I will share some of my story.
  54. Reluctant Memoir, Part 2
    Against The Current vol. 135

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    I think it was in 1963 that I first became aware of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). My older sister Patty had married a very nice guy named Earl Brecher, with whom she went to Liberia as one of the first Peace Corps volunteers, in a program, sending idealistic college graduates to “help” downtrodden areas in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, launched by the Kennedy administration.

  56. The Russian Revolution Ninety Years After
    Against The Current vol. 131

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    The October Revolution of 1917 in Russia was the most influential political event of the 20th century. But since history is written by the victors, it is not well known that October was the opening shot of a vast and powerful challenge to capitalism that swept the industrial world and had strong echoes in colonial countries. Between 1918 and 1921 union membership and days lost in strikes everywhere reached new heights, while the ranks of the revolutionary wing of the socialist movement swelled.
  57. A Slice of Socialist History
    Against The Current vol. 121

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    The following correspondence sheds light on a lesser-known period in U.S. socialist history during the 1950s. Frank Fried was a member of the Socialist Union, led by Bert Cochran, following the “Cochran Faction” expulsion from the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) in 1953. He wrote this letter in response to a query from Hal Smith, a student engaged in research in the history of the Trotskyist movement. The subsequent comment by Lester Rodney, the longtime journalist who waged a long campaign in the 1930s and ’40s to break the “color line” in Major League Baseball, offers further perspective on the politics of the Communist Party in the period. Both are retired and living in California.

  68. Transcending Pessimism: Rekindling Socialist Imagination
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Between Marx's broad historically-inspired vision of revolution/transformation and his detailed critique of political economy, there was an analytical and strategic gap - unbridgeable without addressing the problematic of working class capacities - which later Marxists sometimes addressed, but never overcame. Every progressive social movement must, sooner or later, confront the inescapable fact that capitalism cripples our capacities, stunts our dreams, and incorporates our politics.
