  • Is China an Imperialist Country?

    Whether or not China is now a capitalist-imperialist country is an issue on which there is some considerable disagreement, even within the revolutionary left. This book brings together theoretical, definitional and logical considerations, as well as the extensive empirical evidence which is now available, to demonstrate that China has indeed definitely become a capitalist-imperialist country.

This has been obvious to some extent recently in the internet commentary surrounding a certain anarchist author who is alleged to be a fascist infiltrator — some people are now citing problems in articles this guy has written, to show how it “was obvious” to them all the while that he didn’t have good anti-racist politics. As if that somehow relates to whether or ...........READ MORE
