I’m in the new Monthly Review

I’ve got an article in this month’s issue of Monthly Review!  It’s a review of Derek Wall’s book Babylon and Beyond, which attempts to survey the politics of the various wings of the anti-globalization/anti-capitalist movement(s).  The article isn’t available online, but I highly recommend picking up the issue.

If you’re not familiar with Monthly Review, it’s an excellent and venerable socialist magazine, founded  in 1949 by the late Paul Sweezy and Leo Huberman.  The first issue featured Albert Einstein’s essay Why Socialism?, and the magazine has continued in that tradition since.  The current editor, John Bellamy Foster, is a leading ecosocialist thinker– his Marx’s Ecology explores the subject in great depth, while Ecology Against Capitalism is a more accessible introduction to ecosocialism.

    Hi Sarah:

    I just read your review of Derek Wall’s book in Monthly Review. There was a reference on your part to Wall’s enthusiastic support of “open source” software. You may be interested to know, if you don’t already, that more radical views than Wall’s can be found. I mean “free” software. “Free” here means “freedom” rather than software that costs nothing. A discussion of free software can be found on the Canadian website rabble.ca (on their discussion board babble) at the following link:


    I took the liberty of sending a note, like this one, to MR.

    Best wishes from BC, Canada.

    I enjoyed your article in MR.

    I think you might dig my blog gritsandroses.org and the news website I write for theglobalreport.org

    I’ve recently interviewed MR alum Michael D. Yates and will later this week be posting my interview with Robert McChesney.

    In solidarity,
