class struggle historiescontact
Class pervades every aspect of this website as it does every aspect of the contradictions we live. And class struggle is the essential ‘impossible’ escape from this mad mess of a life.
Most people who write about history do so not from a perspective that aims to clarify the “lessons” of past struggles, their strengths and weaknesses, but merely as either a career, or as a pastime. On this site, I hope to use the past to help change the future. History is something to make, not merely read or write about. When one riots or strikes or revolts in some other way one does so in the present. The past only makes sense when one first of all begins with a disabused analysis of the present and then works backwards.
due to changes on the site some of the links below do not now work. In time they will, but for the moment it’s best to look at the drop down menus, either in “struggle histories” or in the A-Z:
france: the latest… (a chronology and reader constantly updated up until the present)
os cangaceiros: freedom is the crime that contains all crimes, and other stuff…(1985-6), plus a critical introduction (2013)
