Medstifter af Socialist Review Group (senere International Socialists/Socialist Workers Party) indtil midt 70’erne, hvor han blev leder af forlaget Pluto Press.

Om/About Michael Kidron:

The monetary and the military: revisiting Kidron’s permanent arms economy. By Joseph Choonara (International Socialism, Issue 171, Summer 2021, p.123-150). “… the current article will present the theory as developed by Kidron, showing its origins within discussions in Trotskyist circles and the originality of his approach. It will set out some of the controversies surrounding the PAE …”

Michael Kidron’s Marxism (International Socialism, Issue 165, Winter 2020, p.179-187). “Richard Kuper, who edited the new edition of Capitalism and Theory (Haymarket, 2018) and was a member of the International Socialists, and John Palmer, a member of the Socialist Review Group and the International Socialists, spoke to Joseph Choonara and Tomáš Tengely-Evans about the significance of Kidron’s work.”

Modern capitalism (International Socialism, Issue 162, Spring 2019, p.139-142 + 142-164). Alex Callinicos introduces Michael Kidron’s talk Modern capitalism and the crisis (1977). See also John Rudge’s introduction, with Michael Kidron’s entire manuscript (ibid.).

Michael Kidron (1930–2003). By Ian Birchall (International Socialism, Issue 99, Summer 2003, p.103-114). “Ian Birchall introduces a selection of abstracts from his early editorials, spanning among other things, pacifism and the bomb, confronting Nazis on our streets, and the role of the theoretical jornal.”

Michael Kidron (1931–2003). By Samuel Farber (Against the Current, Issue 105, July–August 2003). “With the passing of Mike Kidron, the revolutionary left lost an important thinker and a generous and free spirit. I lost a good comrade, friend and former mentor.”

Permanent legacy: Michael Kidron (1930–2003). By Chris Harman (Socialist Review, Issue 273, April 2003). “Chris Harman remembers Mike Kidron, who helped Marxists understand the post-war boom and Third World revolt.”

Michael Kidron (1930–2003). By Lee Sustar (Socialist Worker, US, Issue 449, April 18,  2003). “As an editor and frequent contributor to the International Socialism journal in the 1960s, Kidron was central to the project of making revolutionary socialist politics relevant to a new generation of radicals.”

Mike Kidron (1930–2003). By Alex Callinicos (Socialist Worker, Issue 1845, 5 April 2003). “The Marxist economist Michael Kidron, who died last week at the age of 72, made an enormous contribution to the Socialist Workers Party’s development during the early years of our tradition in the 1950s and 1960s.”

Michael Kidron (1930–2003). By Richard Kuper (The Guardian, 27 March 2003). “Publisher, writer and socialist whose life’s project was to understand, and help replace, capitalism.”

Two insights don’t make a theory. By Michael Kidron (International Socialism, Issue 100, Summer 1977) +
