Requiem For Communism

by Charity Scribner, Requiem For Communism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Requiem For Communism books, In Requiem for Communism Charity Scribner examines the politics of memory inpostindustrial literature and art. Writers and artists from Europe's second world have responded tothe last socialist crisis with works that range from sober description to melancholic fixation. Thisbook is the first survey of this cultural field.Today, as the cultures of Eastern and Western Europemerge into the Infobahn of late capitalism, the second world is being left behind. The EuropeanUnion has pronounced obsolete the structures that once defined and linked industrial cities fromManchester to Karl-Marx-Stadt--the decaying factories and working collectives, the wasted ideals ofstate socialism and the welfare state. Marxist exponents of global empire see this historical turnas an occasion to eulogize "the lightness and joy of being communist." But for many writers andartists on the left, the fallout of the last century's socialist crisis calls for an elegy. Thisregret has prompted a proliferation of literary texts and artworks, as well as a boom in museumexhibitions that race to curate the wreckage of socialism and its industrial remnants. The best ofthese works do not take us back to the factory. Rather they look for something to take out of it:the intractable moments of solidarity among men and women that did not square with the market or theplan.Requiem for Communism explores a selection of signal works. They include John Berger?snarrative trilogy Into Their Labors; Documenta, the German platform for contemporary art and ideas;Krzysztof Kieslowski's cinema of mourning and Andrzej Wajda's filmed chronicles of the Solidaritymovement; the art of Joseph Beuys and Rachel Whiteread; the novels of Christa Wolf; and LeslieKaplan's antinostalgic memoir of women's material labor in France. Sorting among the ruins of thesecond world, the critical minds of contemporary Europe aim to salvage both the remains of socialistideals and the latent feminist potential that attended them.

A Requiem For Karl Marx

by Frank E. Manuel, A Requiem For Karl Marx Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Requiem For Karl Marx books, As Karl Marx the icon has fallen along with so many communist regimes, we are left with the mystery of Karl Marx the man, the complexities of a life that has profoundly affected millions. A Requiem for Karl Marx is Frank Manuel's searching meditation on that life, a learned and elegantly written engagement with the man and his work. Manuel gives us a psychological portrait rendered with sympathy and critical detachment, a probing look at the connections between the private drama of Marx's life and his revolutionary ideas. Manuel pursues these connections from Marx's adolescence and education in Trier through his university studies, marriage to a German baroness, and early affiliation with French and German radical groups. Here we see Marx in moments of youthful rapture, in periods of despair, in maneuvers of blatant hypocrisy, in outbursts of self-mockery. We follow his involuted response to his status as a converted Jew, observe the psychic toll of debilitating bouts of illness, and witness the shattering effects of his aggressive, often brutal conduct toward friend and foe alike. Manuel analyzes in intricate detail the central role of Marx's enduring relationship with Friedrich Engels, which appears to transcend the bounds of friendship, and his changing behavior toward his wife, Jenny, the neurotic and tragic figure who shared his dismal London exile. What becomes clear in this narrative is the link between Marx's personal life and his ideas about class struggle, revolutionary strategy, and utopia--as well as the impact of his personal vision and political tactics on the movements that followed him, down to our day.
