Australian Left Review


Under the rubric of "Political Responses to the Family" in this issue ALR publishes an abridged version of an American discussion paper on the family and politics. Given in July 1981 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the annual convention o f the New American Movement (NAM), a marxist-based organisation of US socialists, the paper provoked a vigorous debate on the issues raised by its authors, one of whom (Michael Lerner) is the co-ordinator of the Workers Occupational Health Centre, Oakland, California. Australians present at the N AM convention brought the paper back to Australia and here it has likewise had an impact, apparently arousing strong feelings both for and against.
