Eric Hobsbawm


The following paper of Eric Hobsbawm was originally printed in Marxism Today, the theoretical journal of the Communist Party of Great Britain. The ALR editorial collective thought it should be reprinted here since it deals factually and objectively with questions of socialist strategy which have long been a matter of contention and which are once more coming into prominence. It is hoped that the general questions of strategy raised here may promote a discussion in the pages of ALR. In this connection we draw readers’attention to ' our special publication on Eurocommunism, now out and selling for one dollar. Eric Hobsbawm is a leading marxist historian and writer, and is a member of the CPGB.
