REVOLUTION AND COUNTER REVOLUTION IN PORTUGAL REVOLUTION AND COUNTER REVOLUTION IN PORTUGAL

Martin Kayman

On 25 April 1974 a group of Portuguese junior officers took power in a bloodless coup which signalled the start of a daring experiment for a 'transition to socialism' which brought the Communist Pary close to national power and put the notion of 'popular power' on the practical political agenda of the Left.
This book explains the origins of this crisis and surveys political change in 1974 and after. 223x142mm 276pp

AUGUST THALHEIMER AND GERMAN COMMUNISM AUGUST THALHEIMER AND GERMAN COMMUNISM
Edited by Ted Crawford, Paul Flewers and Esther Leslie

An introduction to debates within the German and international communist movement touching on the united front, anti-fascism and trade union work; a series of articles on the German Communist Party and its relationship with Moscow and the German working class. Included are three substantial documents written by August Thalheimer, the party's main theoretician during the 1920s. Thalheimer was one of most original Marxist thinkers to emerge in Europe. Here, he analyses the proceedings of the Fifth Congress of the Communist International, subjects the Comintern's draft programme of 1928 to a sustained critique, and looks critically at the idea that there could have been a workers' revolution in Germany in 1923. In so doing, he discusses many key issues of revolutionary politics, including the united front, trade union work and anti-fascist activity. Also an analysis of the theories of the controversial Italian writer Bruno Rizzi.

Contents: Editorial, John McIlroy: Al Richardson (1941-2003)- an Appreciation; Ottokar Luban, Rosa at a Loss: The KPD Leadership and the Berlin Uprising of January 1919: Legend and Reality; Karl Retzlaw, From the Kapp Putsch to the March Action; August Thalheimer, 1923: A Missed Opportunity?- The Legend of the German October and the Real History of 1923; August Thalheimer, The Fifth Congress of the Communist International and its Results; August Thalheimer, The Strategy and Tactics of the Communist International; Alexander Vatlin, The Programme Discussion in the Communist International; Paolo Sensini, Beyond Marxism, Anarchism and Liberalism: Bruno Rizzi's Scientific and Revolutionary Path.

A PARADISE FOR CAPITALISM? A PARADISE FOR CAPITALISM?
Class and Leadership in Twentieth Century Belgium
Edited by Al Richardson

Looking at the appalling conditions endured by the Belgian working class, Karl Marx called Belgium a paradise for capitalism. Nevertheless, class struggle in this small country has often been at a much higher level than in many of its bigger European neighbours.

Belgium is also of interest to Socialists and students of the European labour movement because it is one of the few countries in which the Trotskyist movement enjoyed substantial support amongst key sections of the working class, in particular the miners and dockers. This book investigates the vicissitudes of the Trotskyist movement in Belgium from its formation in the late 1920s through the 1930s and 1940s, and includes material by Leon Trotsky that has not previously appeared in an English translation.
We also include the first English translation of a vivid account of the general strike that gripped Belgium in 1960-61.

Contents: A Contribution to the History of the Belgian Trotskyists, Catherine Leghien; The Parti Socialiste Révolutionnaire, Pierre Broué; Letters on Belgium, Leon Trotsky; Report on the PCR, Harry Ratner; Some Historical Vignettes; The Belgium General Strike 1960-61, Serge Simon; Adrift in the Rapids of Racism.

Change Through Struggle
Edited by Ted Crawford

A study of a year of revolution, with observations and reminiscences of activists who were directly involved in events. Collected and translated into English for the first time by Pete Glatter, these contributions show how the Russian workers were politically transformed through their involvement in revolutionary struggle, how women often took a militant lead, how Russian workers showed their solidarity with their Polish comrades and opposed the anti-Jewish pogroms, and how the revolutionary parties of Russia oriented themselves to the new and often unexpected developments. Also included are three original articles by Rosa Luxemburg.

Contents: Editorial; Pete Glatter, Introduction; The Road to Bloody Sunday, introduced by Pete Glatter; A Revolution Takes Shape, introduced by Pete Glatter; The Decisive Days, introduced by Pete Glatter and Philip Ruff; Rosa Luxemburg and the 1905 Revolution, introduced by Mark Thomas; Mike Haynes, Patterns of Conflict in the 1905 Revolution.

THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR
The View from the Left
Edited by Al Richardson

This book presents a left which, in the midst of civil war and revolution, chose to oppose both fascism and the popular front. The revolution in Spain was overturned by Stalinists and their allies. The Popular Front government of Doctor Negrin facilitated the destruction of collectives and permitted the work of Russian secret services, the murder and torture that demoralised workers and peasants.
This book presents a spectrum of contemporary left viewpoints, introduced and annotated in detail.
An introductory essay by Andy Durgan surveys the development of Trotskyism and of the POUM.

THE IDEAS OF VICTOR SERGE THE IDEAS OF VICTOR SERGE
A Life as a Work of Art

Edited by Susan Weissman

Victor Serge devoted his life and his brilliant pen to the revolution which for him knew no frontiers. An anarchist turned bolshevik, he was unorthodox by nature, often a heretic but never a renegade. This important collection presents a still insufficiently known revolutionary figure through testimonials and essays on his literary praxis. [In association with Critique]
