1. ARAB REVOLUTIONS AT THE CROSSROADS – BY KEVIN ANDERSON

The revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, and the uprising in Libya have exhibited a post-Islamist and post-nationalist character.  After challenging both the political and the economic order, they face dangers from old forces like the military and the Islamists (Egypt) or of violent repression (Libya) – Editors

2. HUGE MOBILIZATION IN LONDON AGAINST CUTBACKS SHOWS BOTH PROMISE AND CONTRADICTIONS – BY DAVID BLACK

3. ACCUMULATION, IMPERIALISM, AND PRE-CAPITALIST FORMATIONS: LUXEMBURG AND MARX ON THE NON-WESTERN WORLD – BY PETER HUDIS

Both Marx and Luxemburg were intensely interested in the impact of the expansive logic of capital accumulation upon non-capitalist or developing societies. At the same time, there are also serious differences in their approach, in that Marx adopted a far less unilinear and deterministic approach to the fate of non-Western social formations as compared to Luxemburg — Editors
