New Amazon Kindle eBook! ‘On Becoming What We Claim to Oppose: The Unwanted Lessons of the Russian Revolution’

on becomingJust published an ebook on Amazon Kindle:

‘The centenary of the Russian Revolution of October 1917 represents a unique moment for historical remembrance and celebration, the event in question a momentous episode in the history of working class struggle and a beacon of hope for anyone who has ever dared to dream of a basically sane and just world. For others it will represent an opportunity for the politicisation of history, an opportunity to sweep all the terminally problematic aspects of the revolution under the rug — not least of which being the propensity of the Bolsheviks to become everything they claimed to oppose in divorcing means from outcomes.’
