Reviews

  • By Meg Duke -

    Bursting at the seams with vivid examples and stories, this book’s a dynamic dialogue between Balkan anarchist Grubajic and American IWW organizer/Marxist professor Lynd. Grubajic synthesizes broad, relevant questions for Lynd, whose answers expand upon specific (anarcho/marxist/wobbly/zapatista/sncc) histories and illuminate the necessary cooperation and synthesis of anarchist and marxist tradition/theory/action.

    An Anarchist and a Communist are in the same car together. Who is driving? (Answer at the end of this review!)
    For me, this book was most valuable as a kind of “political autobiography” of Staughton Lynd. He is not exactly a “typical” Marxist- really he’s more of a leftist Saint (along the lines of Eugene Debs). This book was published ten years ago-during happier times. While there was and still is much to be learned from both Wobblies and Zapatistas, there are serious problems toward adopting either one as a blueprint for success in today’s USA.
    Answer: A cop.
