Socialist Reviews free on 1st June

I write reviews of books and films for The Socialist and Socialism Today. The book will be free on 1st June and very reasonably priced thereafter (99 cents in America and the equivalent in the UK and elsewhere) Click here

During the banking crisis, the BBC broadcaster, Sarah Kennedy, joked that “The TUC have a demonstration against capitalism this weekend. They are bringing it forward because capitalism may not last that long.” Yet capitalism did survive the banking crisis and every family in the land knows how it survived. It survived at our expense. Bankers still get million pound bonuses (I always think six months in prison would do them more good) and we get cuts in wages, pensions and social services.

Perhaps it is those who believe in capitalism who are living in cloud cuckoo land. They assert that Socialism is impractical but what could be more impractical then a society which robs the poor to give to the rich?

I have collected some of my reviews here. The most recent is a review of Parliamentary Socialism entitled Miliband on Miliband. The earliest is a review of Life on the Screen by Sherry Turkle which is simply the most fascinating insight into the strange world of cyberspace that I have ever come across.

I review things which move or interest me.That is the advantage of freelance writing.
