    Elly Leary Reviews In and Out of the Working Class

    Elly Leary reviews Michael D. Yates’ In and Out of the Working Class in the January 2010 issue of Monthly Review. “Okay. Let’s get the disclaimers out of the way right now. I am a longtime fan of Mike Yates. A big fan. I have used his materials with community and labor activists, made some contributions to a few of his works, and answered his call to write for Monthly Review on other occasions. So it will come as no surprise that In and Out of the Working Class did not disappoint. This personal reflection and journey through the world of Mike Yates from the early 1950s to the present has made me an even bigger fan.” Learn more here.

    Ian Hussey reviews Let Them Eat Junk

    Read Ian Hussey’s review of Robert Albritton’s Let Them Eat Junk in Socialist Studies: the Journal of the Society for Socialist Studies. “His brilliance is not just in his understanding of Marx’s magnum opus, but his ability to communicate an analysis of the global agriculture/food system in such a way that it is not unreasonable to think it of interest to engaged senior high school readers, but it is also substantive enough to work well in third and fourth year university and college classrooms of political science, sociology, labour studies, and environmental studies.” Read the full review.
