The Politics of Imperialism and Counterstrategies

Pratyus Chandra (Editor) Anuradha Ghosh (Editor) Ravi Kumar (Editor)
Synopsis The God’s Cowboy Warrior holds world to ransom. White, Green and Saffron guards all play their part in this Grand Inquisition, extending and intensifying it. The papers in this collection grounding themselves in diverse Marxist traditions are united in their pursuit to understand the ongoing political conflicts around the globe. Imperialism and all its dehumanized representations are realizations of the systemic logic of capitalism. If alternative has to be anti-capitalist, its evolving forms/contents have to be identified. One cannot simply go on rhetoricising and infinitum-“ another world is possible”. Even if we refrain from identifying that ‘world’, the system will define it in its own way. “ Anti-capitalist indifference” leads to barbaric conclusions, reflected in nationalist vandalism of RSS and Shiv Sena in India, Al Qaeda in the Middle East, anti-immigrant racist resurgence in the “advanced” societies- “anti-capitalist capitalism”. There is always a danger of being trapped in the systemic dungeon of mystifications reproducing the bourgeois society if the processes leading towards it are not comprehended; and it needs courage to break that trap. The Argentine, Venezuelan, Mexican and Bolivian upheavals and the officialisation of sections of the dissent require explanation. Here, we have some representative Marxist modes of understanding the politics in present-day Capitalism, i.e., the politics of Imperialism and forces against it.
