Tony Cliff: A Marxist for his Time

with Ian Birchall

Bookmarks Publications ISBN: 978 1905 192809

Special Offer £15 (paperback)

Friday 28 October, 6.30pm

Tony Tony Cliff came to political consciousness in the darkest period of the 20th century and spent his life developing revolutionary Marxism against Stalinism. From his early days as a revolutionary in British-occupied Palestine, through years of obscurity and isolation in London and Dublin to the high points of struggle in post-war Britain, Cliff worked to restore lost ideas and traditions, fan flames of resistance and develop our understanding of a system in constant change. Ian Birchall's lovingly crafted book is the culmination of years of work, drawing on interviews with over 100 people who knew Cliff and painstaking research in archives around the country. It is a majestic example of political biography at its best.
by Ian Birchall, a comrade of Cliff's for nearly 40 years.

Come and celebrate the official launch of Tony Cliff: A Marxist for his Time with a talk by Ian Birchall and a glass or two of wine.>
