Product Description

Review


PRAISE FOR IAN MCKAY'S REBELS, REDS, RADICALS:

'A study admirable in its balance of past and present, reflection and urgency.'
Canadian Literature

'A necessary project of historical retrieval, but ... also a brilliant call for the renewal of public discourse on the Left ... it should be of interest well beyond academic circles.'
-Canadian Historical Review

'The strengths of the book are the passion of the author and his ability to move across time with a remarkable range of examples. He is also right in his willingness to open up the debate, and to see that broader social and political movements-for women's rights and Native rights, for example-should in fact be understood as part of the broad family of change.'
-Literary Review of Canada

'A stunningly clear and politically committed work.'
-Socialist Worker

'I would recommend Rebels, Reds, Radicals to young readers and established scholars alike, as the imperative of social justice is all too often lost in the abandon of postmodernist speculation. ...If Rebels, Reds, Radicals is any indication of the quality of scholarship which will follow in the multi-volume work, we should all look forward to an influential contribution which will have implications for sociologists, historians, and political scientists.'
-Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology

'McKay's promised three volume reconnaissance of the Canadian Left ... will allow socialists to understand the processes that created and undermined the Lefts of the past. The result will be new insights and, undoubtedly, new disagreements and new debate. The Left can only benefit.'
-New Socialist

'This book is intended as the first volume in what will probably end up being a fairly massive multi-volume history of the Canadian left by this author, and I will read them eagerly as they are released.'
- 'A Canadian Lefty in Occupied Land' (blog)

'A book brimming with big ideas about the history of the Canadian Left that raises issues about the nature of the Left itself. It is also an introduction to... McKay's forthcoming multi-volume history of the Canadian Left, an ambitious work that, on the evidence provided by this book and other writings, will be a very important contribution.'
- Labour/Le Travail

From the Publisher

Rebels, Reds, Radicals is the inaugural volume in PROVOCATIONS, a Between the Lines series of concise works advancing broad arguments, written by authors deeply immersed in their fields.

Format: Paperback
This is a great place to start for anyone interested in leftist thought or leftist theory. McKay is academic without being boring or dry. His writing is accessible, but not watered down. A must read.
