Book Overview
This book contributes a radical politics of community, one that engages with practical questions in the context of hypersecular, postmodern capitalism. Going beyond the bounds of the modern political spectrum of left and right (even while tunneling within these boundaries and questioning the very idea of the spectrum), Bill Martin moves from the possibilities of rethinking the socialist and Marxist projects, through recent debates on liberalism and communitarianism, the difficult issues of anti-Semitism in Marx and Marxism, and the legacy of Mao for revolutionary practice, to the practical issues raised by the Gulf War and its ideological aftermath and the 1992 uprisings in Los Angeles.
