9780850365566: Pessimism of the Intellect?: A History of the New Left Review

This concise history of the New Left Review covers its political and intellectual development from 1962 to the present including attempts to develop socialist politics through the Labour party of Harold Wilson, new Marxist theory, the Cold War years, and the era of contemporary capitalist globalization. Surveying the achievements of the New Left Review, this book tells the tale of the respectable academic reputation it has won, but also reveals its failure to achieve its primary goal of finding a strategy for a transition to socialism.

About the Author:

Duncan Thompson is a contributor to Socialist History Journal.

Review:

"A compelling analysis of the second New Left Review and its erratic changes in political orientation. Essential reading, if only as a warning, for those still interested in contesting neo-liberalism and global capitalism." —Pat Devine, honorary research fellow, University of Manchester

Book Description The Merlin Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Duncan Thompson provides a concise summary of the hitherto neglected history of New Left Review and its political and intellectual development from 1962 to the present. Perry Anderson, Robin Blackburn et al. emerged as the leading figures of a second new left around New Left Review six years after the new left first emerged in the wake of the Soviet invasion of Hungary and Britain and France s invasion of Suez. Thompson traces NLR s attempts to develop socialist politics, through the old Labour of Harold Wilson, through heady days in 1968, through new Marxist theory, through the Cold War years and into the era of contemporary capitalist globalisation. He surveys the achievements of NLR: a respectable academic reputation has been won, but it has not succeeded in achieving or facilitating the primary goal of the second New Left, that of finding a strategy for transition to socialism.
