We the Indians The indigenous peoples of Peru and the struggle for land

The story of indigenous peoples in Peru, and struggles for land reform and change from the 1950s and 1960s. In 1972 he published:  'Land Or Death: The Peasant Struggle in Peru'

Hugo Blanco is a historic leader of the Peruvian campesino struggle and a key figure in the huge insurrections of the rural dispossessed. He was a key protagonist in the stories he shares in vivid but direct language. At the same time he gives voice to those who fought alongside him, while always advocating a respectful relationship with Pachamama (Mother Earth).

No.59 The Far Right in Europe

No.59 The Far Right in Europe

This book is a survey of the far right in seven countries of Europe with different political histories: Britain, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden. The survey, by activists and researchers from those countries, reveals a disturbing picture of far-right parties, some with a mass base, which have been able to drag the mainstream political parties to the right. The book is a contribution to understanding the nature of these far-right parties and to developing strategies for the left to confront this threat

No.58 Bankocracy

No.58 Bankocracy

Banks are at the heart of contemporary capitalism – they are key to financial markets, generate the bulk of financial profits, and have enormous influence on policy making. Eric Toussaint offers us a wide-ranging, informative and sharp outline of their role. And as one would expect from the author, the analysis is politically committed, while also suggesting concrete measures to deal with the power of banks. – Costas Lapavitsas, former MP for Syriza and Professor at SOAS, University of London.
