Radical theories: Paths beyond Marxism and social democracy
bookposted on 2023-06-07, 22:32 authored by Darrow SchecterDarrow Schecter
This book aims to reclaim and rediscover the range of radical, democratic, socialist alternatives to capitalism. Schecter argues that whilst the collapse of the Soviet Union has seen the failure of one type of socialism, it has presented the left with the cance to re-evaluate the contribution of thinkers and movements obscured by the hegemony of Marxism-Leninism. Schecter surveys the range of radical alternatives, both from the early years of socialism and from contemporary political theory. Revolutionary syndicalism, anarchism, council communism, guild socialism, market socialism and green, post-industrial socialism all come under his critical gaze. He argues that the key to new socialist politics lies in the recognition and re-politicization of civil society.
