Communism in Turkey

November 14, 2009 at 3:30 pm (Uncategorized)

Recently, I saw my friend Loren Goldner. Loren gave a short presentation on a new article he has written and which is published on his web site.

Socialism in One Country Before Stalin and the Origins of Reactionary Anti-Imperialism: The Case of Turkey 1917-1925 

The article details moments in the early life of the Turkish communist party, and the role of the Bolsheviks.  (For additional information, the Turkish group EKS published two pamphlets on communism in Turkey before they joined the ICC  – both are available from the ICC

For people who don’t know Loren, he is well worth getting to know. I know few people who can digest information and write printable copy so quickly.  Loren has self-published a few books, and is working on a new one on Korea.

If you haven’t seen it, Loren’s book on Melville is incredible. Contact me for details – you can also order it from Amazon.
