From International Socialism 2 : 13, (Summer 1981).
Transcribed by Marven James Scott, with thanks to the Lipman-Miliband Trust.
Marked up by Einde O’Callaghan for ETOL.
This issue of International Socialism contains an overview by Tim Potter of some of the rapid changes taking place in the European Communist Parties today.
It also contains two articles relevant to the debate around the Labour Party; Ian Birchall examines the experience of left Social Democracy in France in the 1930s, and Pete Green looks at ‘Alternative’ and ‘Socialist’ economic strategies for Britain.
The bulk of this issue, however, is devoted to two articles. Firstly there is Tony Cliff’s major reassessment of feminism and socialism in Clara Zetkin’s Germany. Then there is the third part of Chris Harman’s series on locating the crisis, in which he examines, concretely, the crisis of the 1930s.
The length of these articles has meant that we have held over some discussion material which will be published next time.
