Critical Political Publications
revised and updated 26/12/05
We list these in groups in order of date of original publication. The grouping is subject to change as the list develops. There are books here of interest in the Labour History domain, and in the Irish Studies domain; codes 5 for Labour History and 6 for Boston College. There is material here perhaps of interest to a niche research libraries specialising in critical analysis of the global Left, also the feminist movement; in this context I am open to suggestions.

Serious Critical Periodicals
[The locations of the following needed to be re-defined in the aftermath of the first downsizing move; most are in the attic, some on shelves. RJ 01/01/09.]
Modern Quarterly; this was published by Lawrence & Wishart for the CPGB and edited by John Lewis; it became in 1954 the Marxist Quarterly, edited by Emile Burns. There probably was some political pressure behind this change; both attracted contributions from serious Marxist intellectuals, including Bernal, Burhop, Berger, Dobb, Hobsbawm, Hill and others. I think it eventually foundered after the Hungarian episode. RJ. We have the following issues, in an incomplete series: Vol 3 1948 2; Vol 4: 1-4; 5 1,2,4; 6: 1,3,4; 7: 1,2,4; 8: 1-4. Then in its new guise we have in 1954 Vol 1: 1,2 and then 2: 1,2; 3: 2,3. Attic, top of stairs, box bkgrnd 3.
Science and Society, edited by Bernard Stern in New York; I have Vol 19 #3 (Summer 1955); vol 21 #1 & #4; vol 25 #4, vol 25 #4; vol 26 #1. Authors include du Bois, Lamont, Cornforth.
Survey: a journal of Soviet and East European Studies; July 1966, on the 23rd Party Congress.
Socialism and Democracy, eds Brown / Rosegarten, for an international study group; I have issues 4 to 9, 1987-89; it seems I dropped this in favour of NLR.
New Left Review (FR 3.1L): I have occasionals prior to 1991, and then a reasonably complete series from 1991 to 2004, when I was a subscriber. I gave up, finding the academic orientation and lack of relevant praxis unproductive. I have 31 (1965) which has Conor Cruise O'Brien on the Congo, 84 (1974) which has Brecht on Lukacs. 87-88 (1974) which has Adorno on Sartre and Brecht, and Medvedev on Russia and Marxism, and 187 (1991) which has Grundmann on Ecology and Marxism, as well as stuff on the Gulf War, Bush, and Chomsky. So I must have been buying seletively. Landing, large case, shelf 4.
Nature, Society and Thought (NST), edited by Erwin Marquit from the University of Minnesota, is perhaps an indicator of the emergence of a new wave of critical Marxism in the US; I picked up Vol 10 #2 with its paper on Klaus Fuchs, had some e-mail exchanes with the Editor, and then discovered that I had picked up Vol 5 #3 in 1992; this contains a serious analysis of the background to the fall of the USSR in critical Marxist terms by Hans Heinz Holz in Germany; I had read this at the time and annotated it.
Left Curve; issues 24 and 25, 2000 and 2001, published irregularly from Oakland, California; there is representation in the editorial group from Ireland via Des McGuinness in the DCU School of Communication.
International Socialism *92; published by the SWP, Britain; I have the Autumn 2001 issue with analysis of the Genoa events.
Imprints: a Journal of Analytical Socialism: published in Britain by an academic critical socialist network; it comes out 3 times per annum and I have a complete run from its beginning in 1996 up to Vol 3 #3 Spring 1999. I reacted positively to an interview with John Roemer in June 1998, on 'Socialism's Future' and considered making contact; there are e-mails, but the contact lapsed. In Spring 1999 there is a good analysis of the Sokal affair by James Ladyman, but despite this it seems that I failed to renew, perhaps because ofincreasing pressure to get going on the book Century of Endeavour.
Monthly Review, edited by Paul Sweezy et al from New York; I have Vol 48 #6 and #8, Nov 96 and Jan 97; also Vol 50 #3, July/Aug 98. I was a subscriber in the 1950s, but these have got lost, alas. I have a positive recollection of the Sweezy-Huberman papers in Cuba, which I found helpful at the time. I have taken it up again as from Vol 61 #3, July-Aug 2009; this is in landing, RH case, shelf 4R
The following group is located on landing, RH case, shelf 3, also shelf 4R:
Historical Materialism, published from LSE: I have 1997/2 and 1998/2; I had hopes of developing the 'left-green convergence' concept but there were obstacles, mainly regarding praxis.
Dublin Review: I have Issues 13 to 16 (2003-4) but I discontinued this, as it seemed to lack critical focus.
Irish Political Review, from Oct 2007 to August 2009 continuing; attic, top of stairs.
Studies Autumn 5=2005, Irish Review spring 1990, International Socialism 108 (autumn 2005), Tony Cliff Marxism at the Millennium, Journal of Cross-Border Studies spring 2006, Monthly Review 61/3, July-Aug 2009.
The following group was located in FR3.2R in Belgrave Rd; it needs to be re-allocated to defined locatins in the Meadowbank attic:
Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research, vol 34 #2, 1995; this contains abstracts from the 25th annual food science and technology research conference, held in UCC in September 1995. I must have attended it, because I had ringed the names of certain authors, presumably with a view to contacting, in the context of Green political development.
Bullan (Oxford Irish Studies): I have Winter/Spring 1996, which has Daniel Albright on Yeats and Science-Fiction (unconvincing), but more relevantly Kevin Whelan on the Origins of the Orange Order.
The Irish Reporter: I have Feb and June 1996; this was an attempt to produce a serious critical quarterly; it had papers from Gerry Adams, Martin Mansergh, Declan Bree, Ruairi O Bradaigh, John Hume, Declan Kiberd, John Robb, Nuala Ahern and many others. These issues pre-dated the Good Friday Agreement and may have contributed to the latter. For some reason I failed to keep it up, or maybe it ceased publication. The latest Google reference is 1998.
Feasta Review, ed John Jopling & Richard Douthwaite; I have 2 copies of the first issue (2001), and one copy of the second (2004); these are basically conference proceedings; compendia of international expertise on the energy question.
I have not yet found a good approximation to what I feel is necessary in the 'critical review' genre, either in the Irish context or in the global, though I have hopes in the global Marxist genre for NST, with whose editor I am currently in touch. I am hoping to find, in both national and global contexts, a quarterly-type publication which covers the 'science and society' type of analysis: the role of scientific knowledge as an element of the capital stock, the dynamics of the interface between the knowledge discovery process and the processes of production, and the role of working people. It would also need to devote some attention to the differentiation of this process between 'imperial core' situations and the 'post-colonial fringe' situations.
There is a further group located in Attic, case 1, bottom shelf.

Some navigational notes:
In general, if you click on the 'Back' button it will bring to to the
point of departure in the module from which you came; this may be
different from those listed at the bottom. Even if the module from
which you came is listed at the bottom, it is still
preferable to use the 'back' button, because the explicit bottom-of-page
hot-spot will return you to the beginning of the module, and you
will have to scroll down to get back to where you were.
