Now Available in Paperback!

Discovering Imperialism: Social Democracy to World War I

AVAILABLE NOW • $50 • ISBN: 978-1-60846-235-3

THOUGH PRIMARILY associated with the most prominent figures in the history of European Marxism, the theory of imperialism was actually developed through lively and engaged debates within the Second International from 1898–1916. This volume assembles and translates for the first time all of the main documents produced over the course of these discussions.

PRAISE FOR DISCOVERING IMPERIALISM

“[T]his is a really excellent book, which is deeply informative about the development of Marxist ideas about imperialism before Lenin’s famous text … [It] should be as widely read on the left as possible. It opens up a vista of a much more complex debate and development than our ‘traditional’ left narratives of the issue allow us to see.”
—Mike Macnair, The Weekly Worker

TRAGEDY AS A POLITICAL CATEGORY

Tuesday December 4, 16:00-17:45 | Westminster Forum, 5th Floor, Wells Street 

Dr Alberto Toscano, Goldsmiths, University of London

Alberto Toscano is a cultural critic, social theorist, philosopher and translator best known to the English-speaking world for his translations of the work of Alain Badiou, including Badiou’s The Century and Logics of Worlds. He served as both editor and translator of Badiou’s Theoretical Writings and On Beckett.

Alberto Toscano’s own work has been described both as an investigation of the persistence of the idea of communism in contemporary thought and a genealogical inquiry into the concept of fanaticism. He is the author of The Theatre of Production (2006), and his book Fanaticism: The Uses of an Idea was published in 2010. Toscano has published numerous articles on contemporary philosophy, politics and social theory. In an article on the Tarnac 9 case,written for The Guardian in December 2009, Toscano argues that society is losing its ability to distinguish between vandalism and terrorism.

A senior lecturer in sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London, Toscano is a member of the editorial board of the journal Historical Materialism: Research in Critical Marxist Theory.

The seminar will be followed by refreshments
