Looking For The Proletariat: Socialisme Ou Barbarie And The Problem Of Worker Writing : Historical Materialism, Volume 71 Paperback / softback
Part of the Historical Materialism series
Looking for the Proletariat is a contribution to understanding the implosion of the Marxist Imaginary.
The implosion is staged in terms of the first English-language history of the French revolutionary group Socialisme ou Barbarie from 1949 to 1957.
Stephen Hastings-King explains why Socialisme ou Barbarie was the only Marxist organisation interested by worker experience and how the group's anti-Leninist position on organisation led it to privilege first-person worker narratives in order to understand worker experience and its revolutionary possibilities.
