By Jim McIlroy
This collection of articles from Green Left Weekly (now Green Left) by veteran Australian socialist Jim McIlroy deal with the ongoing fight against capitalism and for radical social change. They span the period 1991 to 2008. The articles range from reports on events, overviews of past political events, including experiences during the anti-Vietnam War movement, as well as some more reflective, theoretical pieces. A number of pieces by other authors review publications by Jim or interview him on topical issues.
While the collection is eclectic and varied, it seeks to present an insight into the life and work of one particular socialist activist in the struggle to build a new socialist movement in Australia over many years.
