Saint Boris

the question is: can he use 'it is time for gorbachev to welcome yeltsin as an ally, instead of treating him as a suspicious interloper in the corridors of power' that mandate fruitfully for the good of the people he represents? if one examines yeltsin's political programme, it is really gorbachevism taken to its logical conclusions. cast into what many still thought of as outer darkness, yeltsin did not abandon the fight, but began to cultivate the still embryonic 'informal associations': groups of concerned citizens just beginning to seize the opportunities afforded by glasnost and demokratizatsiya to campaign on matters of public concern, some of which chimed with yeltsin's own.

How English Is It? Popular Literature And National Culture

this triangulating conception of national/popular/literature calls into question not only the idea of literature as the expression of 'the nation', but also the new formations old binarisms of literati:re/popular fiction and high culture/mass culture. The second concerns the imagining of englishness: how might popular fictions shape our perception and experience of identity and difference? 31 national culture and popular literature culture, says edward said, refers to what is at stake in the phrases belonging to or in a place, being at home in a place.

The sato-nixon reversion deal is a compro­ mise, under which the us will share okinawa with japan, while urging japan to extend its military power more in the direction of korea and the asian mainland, as laid out during melvin laird’s visit to japan and korea this summer, and as further suggested by the new japanese defence minister, nishimura, in october this year. In this way, either okinawa can be used as the thin edge of the wedge for the introduction of nuclear weapons into japan as a whole (where they may already be clandestinely); or, as former japanese defence chief nakasone put it last december, if the us does not keep its nuclear weapons on okinawa, then the “deterrent” will no longer be “credible” and japan will have to acquire its own nuclear arsenal.

The Echoing Corridor Music in the postmodern East End

Looking at the influences of american and more recently asian music, and at the traces of english musical history (e.g., music hall) present in late twentieth-century music made in east london and its extended 'suburbs', i will comment in particular on the location and development of musical forms, and examine the nature and extent of music provision by the music business, by educational institutions and local government. The continuing presence of pop music, and the music of the asian and caribbean communities, on radio and in record stores, and the presence of the children of commonwealth immigrants in the schools of british urban centres, have led gradually to the reformation of senior school music teaching away from music appreciation, classical composition and instrumental technique, and towards the technologies and practices of popular music.

Everyday Offensive�notes on ideology

(and of course the women’s movement alone cannot do this, nor can the male-dominated left, or the labour movement do it alone, nor the militant forces of black people, but only a many-sided revolutionary socialist grouping or movement which preserves the autonomy of its various forces, and organises at all levels in terms of ideological struggle and the development of new social relationships-a new balance and unity of our needs through struggle, which means the needs of the oppressed being set in total opposition against the needs of the oppressors to hang on to their power and keep us divided, materially, by sex, race, age, occupation etc.) while struggling through louis althusser’s article on ‘ideology and the state’ i found myself thinking how much he was still blinded by being inside male supremist ideology— so that he, of all famous theoreticians, while writing away about ideology, simply couldn’t see the sexist aspects of capitalism and its ideology, because of his age, history and situation as a male intellectual. apart from these obvious ruling class ideologies, there are other false ideas adding to this tension, new ideologies which reflect the extent to which the trade unions are beginning to be integrated, by way of the leadership, into the state, and become a part of the capitalist economic plan—for instance, the worker doing his bit for the national interest, the possi­ bility of ‘honourable’ bargains between (male) workers and bosses, workers ‘participation’ in management, etc. so you have the fact of individual powerlessness and deprivation in the face of a repressive system, coupled with the dream of individual male power and ownership (material and sexual-the goods).

Not a carnival atmosphere certainly if that is taken to mean solely one of 'jollity' and yet in so far as it is also of the essence of carnivals as occasions of mass cultural expression that they are pregnant with rebellion, the police had succeeded in deepening the reality of this particular carnival.

New Times - The Party Is Over

For instance, francis williams, a true labour loyalist, friend of clem attlee and former editor of the daily herald, describes the birth of the labour party (fifty years march, the rise of the labour party) in this way: 'and now, on that february morning in 1900, the curtain was rising on a new act in this tremendous drama...' and: 'the party born on that grey february day in a drab commercial street off fleet street was to... mobilise behind it and become the chief instrument of a polticial uprising of the working classes of britain that was to change the social and economic face of the country out of all recognition...' this hero would go on to carry through 'a programme which would have seemed the wildest and most revolutionary utopianism to those passing along farringdon street about their ordinary business on that february day in the first year of the new century.' Led for the most part by the campaign for labour party democracy, with most of the left-wing groups, the party introduced the right of constituency parties to re-select their mps and, in a manoeuvre to keep its by now fractious parts together, an electoral college for the party leader and deputy.

Charge Of The Light Brigade

It now comprises a popular alliance between the black caucus, which co-ordinates the many voluntary organisations among black citizens, the women's organisations, the housing co-ops movement disowned by the city council, the voluntary sector which has been starved of resources by the labour council, and the trades council.2 liverpool is an example in extremis of the problem of statism in labour's local government. In three local authorities - all of them in london - we now have black council leaders, and in brent there is a new generation of councillors who enjoyed a landslide victory on a radical manifesto; the 'class of 1986' include more women and more black people than ever before, who have lived their lives in their communities' politics rather than in the labour party as such.

The Caribbean's Stolen Jewel

the evidence of this new mass participation could be seen at all levels of the revolutionary process; in the growth of the militia and the national youth organisation; in the voluntary participation of youth in the important nationwide cpe literacy programme; in the sunday work brigades which repaired roads and schools and in the national women's organisation whose 161 local groups increasingly put grenadian women at the centre of their country's political stage. Not content with withdrawing its own aid, the us government did everything possible to block aid from other sources; including attempting to stop the april 1981 eec conference in brussels from voting aid for the international airport, ensuring that grenada was excluded from aid after hurricane allen and, in june 1981, offering the caribbean development bank $4m on the condition that grenada was excluded from the beneficiaries.

Prince

Old fogeys and angry young men

It is salutary that the great 54 old fogeys and angry young men movement of fathers in the 1990s has not been to reduce working time, nor to desegregate men's and women's incomes and social security benefits (which would mitigate the pressure on poor men to become itinerants, moving between giro drops, their own mothers and the mothers of their children), but to protest against the child support agency's attempts to make them pay for their children. Gershuny's research on british domestic labour and child-care not only shows that time spent with children is increasing among both fathers and mothers, but among those mothers working full-time the time spent with children is actually greater than the time given to children by full -time homemakers three decades ago.
