Murray Bookchin left us with quite a complex legacy, which will become obvious in reading the very different viewpoints expressed in this booklet. I’ve been reading Murray’s own account... More > of his early life in his “From Marxism to Anarchism: A Life on the Left.” Murray, who was born in 1921 and who never passed up an opportunity to turn “hello, how are you?” into a political harangue, has written an incredibly vivid and pithy description of the working class political “scene” in the 1930s in New York City that is absolutely riveting.< Less
AN AMERICAN IN REVOLUTIONARY NICARAGUA By Mitchel Cohen
Paperback: $65.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Mitchel Cohen’s memoir gets across the feel of those hopeful days of the Nicaraguan revolution in the 1980s – as well as the sights, sounds, and smells. He captures the combination of... More > excitement and trepidation U.S. leftists felt as they prepared to leave, along with the roadblocks: from relatives who thought Nicaragua was inhabited by cannibals to the DC-based left bureaucrats who apparently didn’t consider Mitchel respectable enough to join their brigades. Mitchel notes the inventiveness of “ordinary” Nicaraguans as they improvised solutions to everyday problems amid war and poverty – in the mental health clinic he visited, for example. And he highlights one of the most important benefits of the trip: the way experiences there challenged the assumptions that North Americans had brought with them. For a few years it was possible to get on a plane and see what happens when a country’s people take control of their own lives – and to imagine what it would be like if we did the same here. - David L.
