Review Article: Revolution from Within


Eric Aarons


THE APPEARANCE OF JACK BLAKE’S BOOK, which was written on a grant from the Socialist Research Fund, is very welcome. It is an important event because (regrettably) so few Australian marxists have written books. It is an important book because it deals with fundamentals of the problems of revolution in Australia as a particular case of a modem industrialised capitalist country. In doing so, it also puts on the plate difficult questions of theory and action that are, to me, not always clearly posed in the book, and discussion of them can considerably assist their resolution.
