Books and big ideas

This is the last in a series of four brief selections of my writing published on Luna17 and Counterfire this year.

These posts are all directly concerned with left-wing books, with the exception of my fairly lengthy article on revolutionary organisation. A number of them are reviews, but there's also a short introduction to chapter one of Lenin's 'The State and Revolution' and an article examining some key ideas in David Harvey's 'The Enigma of Capital'.

Class Dismissed: why we cannot teach or learn our way out of inequality (November)

For parts 1, 2 and 3 in this round-up see: An extraordinary year in the Arab world, Cuts, trade unions and the movement, and Polemics and analysis

* If you live in (or are ever visiting) north-east England, I strongly recommend visiting Durham's People's Bookshop, a radical bookshop which opened in June. It is, as it happens, where I bought my copies of 'Chavs' and 'The Enigma of Capital'.
