Almost 80 years after Leon Trotsky founded the Fourth International, there are now Trotskyist organizations in 57 countries, including most of Western Europe and Latin America. Yet no Trotskyist group has ever led a revolution or built an enduring mass, political party. Contemporary Trotskyism looks in detail at the influence, resilience and weaknesses of the British Trotskyist movement, from the 1970s to the present day. The book argues that to understand and explain the development, resilience and influence of Trotskyist groups, we need to analyse them as bodies that comprise elements of three types of organization: the political party, the sect and the social movement. It is the properties of these three facets of organization and the interplay between them that gives rise to the most characteristic features of the Trotskyist movement: frenetic activity, rampant divisions, inter-organizational hostility, authoritarian and charismatic leadership, high membership turnover and ideological rigidity. Trotskyist groups have been involved in a wide range of important social movements including trade unions, student unions, anti-war, anti-racist and anti-fascist groups. While their energy and activity in civil society have had some success, their influence has never been reflected in votes or seats at elections even after the financial crisis. Drawing on extensive archival research, as well as interviews with many of the leading protagonists and activists within the Trotskyist milieu, this is essential reading for students, activists and researchers with an interest in the far left, social movements and contemporary British political history.

This book examines the literary impact of famed British poet, Barry MacSweeney, who worked at the forefront of poetic discovery in post-war Britain. Agitated equally by politics and the possibilities of artistic experimentation, Barry MacSweeney was ridiculed in the press, his literary reputation only recovering towards the end of his life which was cut short by alcoholism. With close readings of MacSweeney alongside his contemporaries, precursors, and influences, including J.H. Prynne, Shelley, Jack Spicer, and Sylvia Plath, Luke Roberts offers a fresh introduction to the field of modern poetry. Richly detailed with archival and bibliographic research, this book recovers the social and political context of MacSweeney’s exciting, challenging, and controversial impact on modern and contemporary poetry.

Capitalism likes us to believe in the steady, inevitable march of progress, from the abacus to the iPad. But the historical record tells of innumerable roads not taken, all of which could have led to better, more equal worlds, and still can. Academic and activist Bob Hughes puts flesh on the bones of the idea that 'another world is possible', using as evidence the technology that capitalism claims as quintessentially its own: the computer in all its forms. Contrary to popular belief capitalism does not do innovation well – instead suppressing or appropriating it. This book shows that great innovations have never emerged from capitalism per se, but always from the utopian moments that occur behind the capitalist's back. And when it does embrace an innovation, the results are often the diametric opposite of what the innovators intended. In this thorough and meticulous work Hughes argues that if we only prioritized equality over materialism then superior and more diverse technologies would emerge leading to a richer more sustainable world. Bob Hughes is an academic, activist, and author. Formerly he taught electronic media Oxford Brookes University and now spends his time researching and campaigning against inequality. He is author of Dust or Magic, a book for digital multimedia workers, about how people "do good stuff with computers." He is a member of No One is Illegal, which campaigns for the total abolition of immigration controls, for whom he has written many articles.

Hermosos perdedores

Una novela que sirve de hoja de ruta para recorrer los senderos de la maravillosa mente creativa de Leonard Cohen. El protagonista de Hermosos perdedores solo ha amado a tres personas en su vida, y las tres están muertas. Estableciendo un tórrido pero también sofocante triángulo pasional, Leonard Cohen retrata la red de una obsesión amorosa que orbita alrededor de la personalidad de Catherine Takakwitha, una laica católica del siglo XVII que acabó convertida en santa. Esta figura mística se une a los otros dos personajes centrales de la trama, recientemente fallecidos y que el autor no puede sino invocar: Edith, su esposa, y su gran amigo F. Leonard Cohen se consolidó como escritor con esta novela, que constituye un inmenso collage donde cada pieza explota en infinitas reminiscencias. Ensamblando con inaudita facilidad diálogos absurdos y escenas surreales con los más bellos fragmentos líricos, Hermosos perdedores es una obra carnal que utiliza la sensualidad como el mejor puente para acceder a la sabiduría más elevada. Un espléndido texto que aborda todos los temas y obsesiones que marcaron la génesis de Cohen como artista, lo que hace de esta obra un atlas imprescindible de su universo particular. Reseñas: «Leonard Cohen es tres escritores diferentes que son el mismo poeta; sus obras pueden estar en verso, en prosa o dentro de una canción, pero siempre logran lo que consigue un buen poema: transformar las palabras en un encantamiento.» Benjamín Prado, El Mundo «En España, la editorial Lumen acaba de recuperar sus dos novelas: El juego favorito (1963) y Hermosos perdedores (1966). Magnífica decisión: había que reivindicar como prosista al responsable de canciones como Tower of Song, Avalanche o There is a War.» Jesús Fernández Úbeda, Libertad digital «Un emocionante retrato de la obsesión amorosa que giraen torno a una laica católica del siglo XVII que acabó convertida en santa. Es un texto de prosa luminosa en el que el autor deja ya huella de todas sus obsesiones y de la sensualidad de sus letras.» Pilar Manzanares, AR revista «Revisitar aquellos deliciosos libros ofrece nuevas claves para entender y disfrutar al artista canadiense.» Álvaro Soto, Colpisa «En el primer aniversario de su muerte, la editorial Lumen reedita tres de sus volúmenes: la obra de poesía Libro del anhelo y las novelas El juego favorito y Hermosos perdedores, todas ellas en una cuidadísima edición que incluye en sus portadas dibujos realizados por el propio Cohen.» Álvaro Soto, Colpisa «Dos joyas de la narrativa recién reeditadas que, ante el primer aniversario de su muerte, recuerdan cuán imperecederamente viva resulta también su prosa.» Javier Herrero, EFE «Un libro emocionante.» Sunday Times «La novela moderna más vívida, fascinante y valiente que he leído.» Michael Ondaatje «Magníficamente escrito... uno sale de él habiendo tenido terribles y hermosas visiones.» The New York Times «Brillante, explosive, una Fuente de talento... James Joyce no ha muerto, vive bajo el nombre de Cohen.» Boston Herald «Cohen asalta al lector con palabras, imágenes, pirotecnia y amor. Es un libro furioso, poético, altamente personal.» Toronto Star
