Erich Fromm and the mass psychology of Fascism. By Daniel Finn (Jacobin, April 16, 2021).

Life and work of Erich Fromm. By Rainer Funk (Logos: A Journal of Modern Society & Culture, Vol.6, No.3, Summer 2007). “As one surveys Fromm’s literary output, one is struck by the variety and breadth of his interests and research.”

Thinking about Fromm and Marxism. By Kevin B. Anderson (Logos: A Journal of Modern Society & Culture, Vol.6, No.3, Summer 2007). “Below, I reflect on some aspects of Fromm’s relation to Marxism, keeping these recent discussions in mind.”

On the anniversary of the birth of Erich Fromm. By Raya Dunayevskaya (News & Letters, April 1980; online at Marxists Intenet Archive). “As against the movement away from Marx that he sensed in the Frankfurt School, he himself tried in every possible way to disseminate Marxist-Humanism into all fields, including his own-psychoanalysis.”

Fromm’s sane society. By Paul Mattick (Western Socialist, July-August 1956; online at Marxists Internet Archive). “In Fromm’s society of abundance, the workers’ problems are no longer related to the control of capital but merely to its co-determination.”

Biografier:

Artikler:

Walter Rodney’s Legacy (ROAPE, Review of African Political Economy, 2019- ). Theme with articles by Jesse Benjamin, Katie Barker, Lee Wengraf, Walter Daum, Cecil Gutzmore, David Seddon, Andy Higginbottom, Chinedu Chukwudinma and Leo Zeilig.

Walter Rodney’s lost book: One Hundred Years of Development in Africa. By Leo Zeilig (Liberated Texts, September 13, 2021). “One of the most astonishing books that Walter Rodney … ever wrote was published several years after he was assassinated on 13 June 1980. The story of this book and how it came to be published is almost as remarkable as the life of the revolutionary himself.”

Walter Rodney: Marxist, Pan-African, organic intellectual (Counterfire, October 23, 2020). “Sean Ledwith recounts the socialist revolutionary Walter Rodney’s many accomplishments and intellectual prowess.”

The historical retrieval and controversy of Walter Rodney’s Russian Revolution. By Matthew Quest (New Politics, Issue 68, Winter 2020). “The posthumous publication of Walter Rodney’s book on the historiography of the Russian Revolution is a remarkable accomplishment of historical retrieval, and it provides us with an opportunity to look more deeply into Rodney’s relationship to Marxism, Soviet Communism, and Maoism and post-colonial politics.”

Walter Rodney: Pan-Afrikanism, Marxism and the next generation. By Kevin Okoth (Verso, Blog, 24 April 2019). “Celebrating the work and legacy of radical Guyanese historian and revolutionary Walter Rodney.”

Revolution and the Global South. By Chin Chukwudinma (International Socialism, Issue 162, Spring 2019). Review of Walter Rodney, The Russian Revolution: A View from the Third World. Edited by Jesse Benjamin and Robin D.G. Kelley and Foreword by Vijay Prashad (Verso, 2018, 336 p.)

Walter Rodney’s legacy (Verso, Blog, 24 April 2019). “In this striking new foreword –  extracted in full here – Angela Davis considers the legacy of Walter Rodney and his seminal How Europe Underdeveloped Africa.”

Walter Rodney and the question of power (Verso, Blog, 24 April 2019). “Walter Rodney, the great Marxist historian and activist, was killed on June 13th 1980 by a bomb in his native Guyana. In this essay, originally published by Race Today in 1983, CLR James discusses Rodney’s work in relation to the revolutionary seizure of power.”

The persisting relevance of Walter Rodney’s “How Europe Underdeveloped Africa”. By Giovanni Vimercati (Los Angeles Review of Books, November 27, 2018). “Rodney notes that while impossible to calculate the impact of the slave trade first, and colonialism after, has virtually deprived Africa of any developmental opportunity, condemning it to a subsidiary role.”

Potency of Walter Rodney’s ideas 38 years after assassination. By Wazir Mohamed (Pambazuka News, June 15, 2018). “Thirty-eight years have passed since Walter Rodney was assassinated in Guyana on 13 June 1980 in Georgetown, Guyana’s capital city, but his legacy lives on beyond his home-country.”

Walter Rodney: a revolutionary Caribbean hurricane. By Susan Jappie (A World to Win, 11 March 2013). Review of Clairmont Chung (ed.), Walter A. Rodney: a promise of revolution (Monthly Review Press, 2012). “Walter Rodney was an exceptional man. He was not only a leading scholar and historian, but a Marxist revolutionary who sought to unite people in Jamaica and Guyana. A new book of essays pays tribute.”

Remembering Walter Rodney. By Issa G. Shivji (Monthly Review, Vol.64, No.7, December 2012). “Whenever we had differences we met internally and sorted it out. He left a huge shadow here, on the left, on the African left, and in Tanzania itself.”

Walter Rodney’s ‘How Europe Underdeveloped Africa’. By Louis Proyect (The Unrepentant Marxist, October 28, 2008). “Written in 1973, Walter Rodney’s [book] … had a huge impact on the left.”

The message and meaning of groundings 2005: Walter Rodney lives! By Sara Abraham (Against the Current, Issue 118, Sept.-Oct. 2005). “His numerous writings on the subjects of socialism, imperialism, working class struggles and Pan Africanism and slavery contributed to a body of knowledge that came to be known as the Dar es Salaam School of Thought.”

Remembering Walter Rodney. By Horace Campbell (Socialist Worker, Issue 1955, 11 June 2005). “As a contribution to the discussion of Walter Rodney’s legacy on the 25th anniversary of his death, Socialist Worker is publishing Horace Campbell’s appreciation of the activist and writer, who was assassinated for his radical beliefs.”

Walter Rodney and the question of power. By CLR James (Race Today Publications, 1982; online at Marxists Internet Archive). “Walter was an internationally respected and admired Marxist historian active in the revolutionary movement in Guyana and the Caribbean; he was viewed by the people of Guyana, the Caribbean and the black world as the alternative to the bankrupt, political leaders in the region; and find finally, the Caribbean itself had been simmering since 1968 with revolutionary upheavals and social revolt.”
