  • by Muto Ichiyo, 1987 - 48 pages
    €5,00
    Not available

    In the 1980s, free enterprise ideologues often presented Japan as a model of social harmony and economic dynamism. The essays included in this Notebook describe the real situation of postwar Japanese workers and unravel the mechanisms of the apparent Japanese consensus, in many cases akin to authoritarian suppression of independent thinking.

  • by Daniel Bensaïd, 1987 - 36 pages

    Since the rise of capitalism, socialists have faced certain deep-seated obstacles: the hostility of the bourgeois state, the fitful curve of proletarian class-consciousness, and the inertia or active opposition of apparatuses originally built by the workers for struggle.

  • by Ernest Mandel, 1986 - 40 pages

    Since 1989, many "repentant" leftists have proclaimed Marxism incapable of explaining the new phenomena of the dawning new century.
