New Book: Eurocentrism and the Communist Movement [2nd Edition]

The Kalikot Book Series is proud to announce that the second edition of Robert Biel’s Eurocentrism and the Communist Movement will be released very soon. Originally written in the context of the anti-revisionist New Communist Movement in the UK, Eurocentrism and the Communist Movement was a manuscript that was part of a creative development of the Revolutionary Communist League of Britain in the early 1980s.  And yet it is far more than an historic document since it engages with issues about Marxist theory that are prescient now; the 2nd edition places it squarely within contemporary theoretical debates.
