On New Terrain
Wednesday 21 Feb 6:30
With Kim Moody

In his latest book, Kim Moody analyzes how recent changes in capitalism have altered both the composition of the working class and the economic and political ground on which it struggles. On New Terrain challenges conventional wisdom about a disappearing working class and the inevitability of a two-party political structure as the only framework for struggle. Through in-depth study of the economic and political shifts at the top of society, Moody shows how recent developments in capitalist production impact the working class and its power to resist the status quo. Moody shows that the working class and its own self-activity are essential in the global battle against austerity. Kim Moody is author of In Solidarity: Essays on Working-Class Organization in the United States and U.S. Labor in Trouble and Transition.

This event is in conjunction with Haymarket Books

Politics Of The Mind: Marxism and Mental Distress
Monday 05 Mar 6:30
With Iain Ferguson

Mental distress has become one of the key 'public issues' of the 21st century. According to the World Health Organization, depression currently affects 350 million people. Politics of the Mind: Marxism and Mental Distress looks at the link between the economic and political system under which we live - capitalism - and the enormously high levels of mental ill-health which we see in the world today. The book ends by looking ahead to a world driven not by the demands of profit but on based on meeting human needs - a world which the Marxist psychoanalyst Erich Fromm called 'a sane society'.
