`James, C. L. R./ DunayevskState Capitalism And World Revolution BOOK NEW | eBay

Johnson , was a Trinidadian historian, journalist and socialist. His works are influential in various theoretical, social, and historiographical contexts. His work is a staple of subaltern studies, and he figures as a pioneering and influential voice in postcolonial literature. Characterised by one literary critic as an " anti-Stalinist dialectician ", [4] James was known for his autodidactism , for his occasional playwriting and fiction — his book Minty Alley was the first novel by a black West Indian to be published in Britain [5] — and as an avid sportsman.

He is also famed as a writer on cricket , and his book, Beyond a Boundary , which he himself described as "neither cricket reminiscences nor autobiography", [6] is often named as the best single book on any sport ever written. In , James left Trinidad for the small town of Nelson in Lancashire , England, at the invitation of his friend, West Indian cricketer Learie Constantine , who needed his help writing his autobiography Cricket and I published in During this time James took a job as cricket correspondent with the Manchester Guardian. The following year he joined a Trotskyist group that met to talk for hours in his rented room.

Louise Cripps, one of its members, recalled: "We felt our work could contribute to the time when we would see Socialism spreading. James had begun to campaign for the independence of the West Indies while in Trinidad. The Bureau was led by his childhood friend George Padmore , who would be a driving force for socialist Pan-Africanism for several decades. Amid his frenetic political activity, James wrote what are perhaps his best known works of non-fiction: World Revolution , a history of the rise and fall of the Communist International , which was critically praised by Leon Trotsky , George Orwell , E.

Carr and Fenner Brockway; [22] and The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L'Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution , a widely acclaimed history of the Haitian Revolution , which would later be seen as a seminal text in the study of the African diaspora. James went to Paris to research this work, where he met Haitian military historian Alfred Auguste Nemours.

The RSL was a highly factionalised organisation. James travelled to the United States in late Whereas Trotsky saw the Trotskyist Party as providing leadership to the Black community, in the general manner that the Bolsheviks provided guidance to ethnic minorities in Russia, James suggested that the self-organised struggle of African Americans would precipitate a much broader radical social movement.

He then stayed in the United States until he was deported in By , he had begun to doubt Trotsky's view of the Soviet Union as a degenerated workers state. By the end of the Second World War , they had definitively rejected Trotsky's theory of Russia as a degenerated workers' state. Instead, they classified it as state capitalist , a political evolution shared by other Trotskyists of their generation, most notably Tony Cliff. Unlike Cliff, the Johnson—Forest Tendency was focusing increasingly on the liberation movements of oppressed minorities, a theoretical development already visible in James's thought in his discussions with Trotsky.

Such liberation struggles came to take centre stage for the Johnson—Forest Tendency. The Tendency, on the other hand, was encouraged by the prospects for revolutionary change for oppressed peoples. After a few short months as an independent group, during which they published a great deal of material, in , the Johnson—Forest Tendency joined the SWP, which it regarded as more proletarian than the WP. James would still describe himself as a Leninist despite his rejection of Vladimir Lenin 's conception of the vanguard role of the revolutionary party.

He argued for socialists to support the emerging black nationalist movements. By , James rejected the idea of a vanguard party. In after James had left for Britain, about half the membership of the Committee withdrew, under the leadership of Raya Dunayevskaya , to form a separate tendency of Marxist-humanism and found the organisation News and Letters Committees.

Whether Dunayevskaya's faction had constituted a majority or a minority in the Correspondence Publishing Committee remains a matter of dispute. Historian Kent Worcester says that Dunayevskaya's supporters formed a majority, but Martin Glaberman says in New Politics that the faction loyal to James had a majority. The remaining Johnsonites, including leading member Martin Glaberman, reconstituted themselves as Facing Reality.

James advised the group from Great Britain until it dissolved in , against his urging. James's writings were also influential in the development of Autonomist Marxism as a current within Marxist thought.

He himself saw his life's work as developing the theory and practice of Leninism. I read this in a few days and every bit of Marxist theory helps prepare me for actually reading more of Marx. Well, I also read Grace Lee Boggs autobiography and so I know more the context of this left tendency.

And I've heard CLR lays down some solid writing elsewhere--all reasons to read it. Ok OK. That's why I read this book. So, now that you know the why, how was I read this in a few days and every bit of Marxist theory helps prepare me for actually reading more of Marx.

So, now that you know the why, how was it. It was ok. Nothing, generally speaking, new here. It's a critique of Stalinism, Russia, Yugoslavia, and generally the party bureaucracy with its fully planned state capitalist economic agenda. James and his comrades offer critique and analysis against this but I'm not learned enough in the ways of Marxist-Leninism to have it mean much to me. I'm hoping down the line that it will take on more meaning for me. For the time being, I don't have much else to say about it.
