Australian Left Review


John Playford


PLACING EMPHASIS on the ‘‘labour lieutenants of the capitalist class, channels of reformism and chauvinism", Lenin wrote a t considerable length about the relations between th e labour movement and imperialism. In this work, a brilliant young "new left” historian takes up the problem of the continuous support given by the leaders of organised labour to US imperialism in this century. Radosh traces th e position of US labour leaders on the 1898 war with Spain, the First World War and the Bolshevik Revolution, down through recent events such as the Cuban Revolution, the US invasion of the Dominican Republic in 1965, and the Vietnam War.
