Herbert Marcuse. Period.

Brian Cook

Check out this post from Direland for a nice summation of (and plenty of links to) the works of Herbert Marcuse. And be on the lookout for the triumphant return of (the intolerably unrepressive) Mr. Ireland to the pages of In These Times. When he gets a chance to catch his breath, Ireland will be writing about another revolutionary (from Ireland, no less), the Incredible Oscar Wilde.

In this new book, longtime organizers and movement educators Mariame Kaba and Kelly Hayes examine the political lessons of the Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath, including the convergence of mass protest and mass formations of mutual aid. Let This Radicalize You answers the urgent question: What fuels and sustains activism and organizing when it feels like our worlds are collapsing?

We've partnered with the publisher, Haymarket Books, and 100% of your donation will go towards supporting In These Times.
