Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Maurice Brinton was the most influential member of the British Solidarity Group (1961–1992), which sought to inspire a mass movement infused with libertarian socialist politics. Disavowing the political orthodoxy of the times, Brinton sought to use the past as a guide, but not an anchor, in his visionary writings. Solidarity’s influence on the ’60s New Left, and today’s libertarian Global Justice Movement is a testament to their salience. Tactfully edited by David Goodway, For Workers’ Power includes articles, essays and pamphlets as well as Brinton’s classic works The Bolsheviks and Workers’ Control, Paris: May ’68 and The Irrational in Politics.

Maurice Brinton lives in London with his wife. Editor David Goodway is a professor of social history in Leeds.

Book News Annotation:

Brinton was the principal writer, translator, and thinker of the Solidarity Group in Britain, which broke from its Old Left roots during the 1960s and early 1970s to adopt a fully left-libertarian position. Here are 40 articles and three complete pamphlets that he wrote during that period, on politics, history, organizing, and the Solidarity Group. Only names are indexed.
