’Proletariatets diktatur’ fra Marx til Lenin
(Kbh., Solidaritet, 2014, 348 sider)
“Kan Lenin, Trotskij, Kautsky og andre fremtrædende marxister da have misforstået, hvad Marx mente med udtrykket ’proletariatets diktatur’? I denne fængslende undersøgelse skræller Draper alle lag af misfortolkninger væk og viser, at de faktisk misforstod udtrykket. På baggrund af de forvrængede opfattelser skaber Draper derefter en ny og gennemarbejdet ideologisk struktur.
Han viser, hvorfor og hvordan senere marxister afviger fra Marx’ hensigter.”

(Kbh., Forlaget Solidaritet, 2011, 96 sider)
“De socialistiske bevægelser og ideers historie her i kort og letforståelig gennemgang. Hal Draper viser, at det afgørende skel i socialismens historie går mellem ‘socialisme fra oven’ og ‘socialisme fra neden’ – sådan som Karl Marx formulerede sammenhængen mellem socialisme og demokrati.”
Hal Drapers artikel blev i 1996 udgivet (uoversat) med titlen ‘The two souls of socialism’ på Internationale Socialisters Forlag i serien ‘Utrykte tekster’ [sic!].
Teksten er online på Marxists Internet Archive og oprindelig trykt i 1966. Se også norsk oversættelse: Sosialismens to sjeler (Marxists Internet Archive, Norsk seksjon).

Alan Johnson: The pilots who weathered the storm (Workers Liberty, nr.50-51, okt. 1998, s.35-40)
“Alan Johnson argues that the book can play an invaluable role in restoring democracy to the heart of Marxism and help lay to rest the theoretical confusions of post-Trotsky Trotskyism. Alan Johnson is writing a political biography of Hal Draper”.

Alan Johnson: Third Camp Socialism (Historical Materialism, nr.5, winter 1999, s.301-325)
“These two edited collections make easily accessible for the first time the viewpoint of that minority who went on to form the Workers Party-Independent Socialist League (WP-ISL) from 1940 to 1958. These were revolutionary democratic socialists whose politics were summed up in the slogan, ‘Neither Washington nor Moscow but the Third Camp of Independent Socialism’ … Hal Draper made a wide-ranging claim for the political significanse of the WP-ISL within the revolutionary Marxist tradition”.

Anmelderartikler:

Alex Callinicos: State in debate (International Socialism, nr.73, vinter 1996, s.117-126)
“The concept of bureaucratic collectivism is little more than a label, defined chiefly by the negations in this collection’s title ‘neither capitalism nor socialism’. As to what bureaucratic collectivism actually is, we are left none the wiser at the end of the book than at the beginning. Its most serious and systematic interpretation, first formulated by Carter and taken up later by Shachtman, leads to reactionary political conclusions. Haberkern and Lipow resist these conclusions, but offer instead little but muddle. Far from, as they presumably hoped, producing an advertisement for the theory of bureaucratic collectivism, they have unintentionally provided a strong case for its final internment”.

Alan Johnson: Third Camp socialism (Historical Materialism, nr.5, vinter 1999, s.301-325)
“These two edited collections make easily accessible for the first time the viewpoint of that minority who went on to form the Workers Party-Independent Socialist League (WP-ISL) from 1940 to 1958. These were revolutionary democratic socialists whose politics were summed up in the slogan, ‘Neither Washington nor Moscow but the Third Camp of Independent Socialism’ … Hal Draper made a wide-ranging claim for the political significanse of the WP-ISL within the revolutionary Marxist tradition”.

Barry Finger: On bureaucratic collectivism (New Politics, nr.23, sommer 1997, s.142-150)
“In Neither Capitalism nor Socialism, a volume painstakingly put together from obscure journals and bulletins now virtually unattainable, Ernest Haberkern and Arthur Lipow introduce and place into political context the emergence of a unique and dissident political and intellectual current from the Trotskyist movement which, from its inception, wrestled with the issues that shaped and defined the past 60 years of world history. The book is divided into four sections which roughly correspond to the political chronology of ‘bureaucratic collectivism’ from its embryonic beginnings”.

Socialism from Below
Essays selected, edited and with an introduction by E. Haberkern (New Jersey, Humanities Press, 1992)
Anmeldelser:

Gareth Jenkins: No saviour from on high (Socialist Review, nr.174, april 1994, s.31). Scroll ned.
“Nothing has done the cause of socialism more harm than the notion that socialism equals state control … Defence of socialism as not being identical with state control was therefore a burning necessity. It found powerful expression in the work of the American revolutionary socialist Hal Draper, whose marvelleous essays ‘The two souls of socialism’, is republished in this collection of essays”.

Justin Schwarts: Socialism as self-emancipation (Against the Current, nr.48, jan.-feb. 1994, s.46-49)
“Marx conceives of socialism is what Draper calls ‘Socialism-from-below’. The emancipation of subordinate groups requires democratic collective control of the economy attained by these groups themselves, not by anyone acting on their behalf. But the history of the left is dominated by the contrary conviction of ‘Socialism-from-above’ …”

The ‘Dictatorship of the Proletariat’ from Marx to Lenin
(New York, Monthly Review Press, 1987, 188 s.).
Anmeldt af Steve Leigh: Democracy and revolution (Socialist Worker Review, nr.103, nov. 1987, s.29-30)
“Hal Draper has written another well-researched and interesting book on Marx’s ideas … it is worth a careful and critical reading for those already familiar with Marxist history”.

Chapter 1: The Dictatorship of the Proletariat’ in Marx and Engels (s.11-41)

Colin Barker: Marxology (International Socialism, nr.104, jan. 1978, s.25-26)
“Draper’s first volume indicates that this is going to be a stupendous work of Marxology. As a work of reference, clearly written and admirably organised, Draper is going to be indispensable to anyone who wants to know exactly what Marx and Engels really thought … My fear, I suppose, is that this extraordinary enterprice will … stay stuck at the level of ‘Marxology’ …”

“I had the privilege of reviewing the first volume of this work. At that time, I was more dismissive of the project than I now care to recall … Hal Draper is not producing marxology, but scholarly marxism of the highest order … The scolarship is simply amazing”.

Anmeldt af:

Pat Stack: Dictatorship & democracy (Socialist Worker Review, nr.92, nov. 1986, s.21-23)
“Draper provide us with an invaluable restatement of the key points in a book that is a must for your bookshelves. But only put it there after you’ve read it”.

(1990, 373 s.)
Anmeldt af:

Colin Barker: A rich legacy (Socialist Worker Review, nr.103, nov. 1987, s.29-30)
“Draper’s demolition job on Bakunin – a racist, reformist, Tsar-loving rat – is one of the pleasures of this book. Alas, because of Draper’s death, we shall not get his fifth and final volume, which promised to cover the question of reform versus revolution. But he has left us, anyway, with a marvellously rich and beautifully documented legacy”.

Derek Howl: The legacy of Hal Draper (International Socialism, nr.52, efterår 1991, s.137-149)
“Theres is much in Draper’s book that can be discussed here … but whatever the criticisms, Draper was fighting to defend and enrich the politics of socialism from below, and retained his conviction that the revolutionary ideas of Marx and Engels provided the key to this”.
Vol. 5: War & Revolution

Sarah Knopp: Marxism and war (International Socialist Review, nr.51, jan.-feb. 2007). Scroll ned.
“This volume, like the others in Draper’s series, is a must-read for modern revolutionary socialists. It not only sets the historical record straight, but also provides a useful historical foundation and starting point for the socialist theories of revolution and national self-determination today.”

Simon Basketter: What Marx really said (International Socialism, nr.110, forår 2006, s.186-189)
“The book has been put together by Draper’s long time collaborator E Harberkern, and occasionally reads as a collection of extended notes … But overall it is a valuable addition to an already indispensable collection of work.” Og i dansk oversættelse: Hvad Marx i virkeligheden sagde (Lars Henrik Carlskovs blog)

Tom Unterrainer: Marx and the ‘Marxist line’ on war (Solidarity, årg.3, nr.88, 23. feb. 2006)
“The concern of this volume is not to develop the ‘Marxist line’ on war, but to account for the many complex and often forgotten episodes to which Marx and Engels were forced to react. For Marx the issue was not just to explain why wars happened but also to determine what impact war would have on the working class movement and any prospects for revolution.”

Berkeley: The New Student Revolt (1965)
2011drapermindof.jpg
“‘Don’t trust anyone over thirty’ became a motto of the Free Speech Movement … Hal Draper is one of the few ‘over thirty’ who were familiar with the events of the struggle from the very beginning, and who understood well enough to take the students seriously. He has always been ready with encouragement, but has consistently refrained from giving inappropriate and unsolicited ‘vintage 1930’ advice. This is far from common with our ‘fathers'”.

The Mind of Clark Kerr (1964)
“The Independent Socialist Club publishes this pamphlet as its contribution to understanding the background of the Battle of Berkeley of October 1-2, 1964, and, perhaps more important, as an aid to continuing and extending the struggle in which this event was one battle. In this battle, a magnificent mobilization by the students won an important beachhead, but the victory for freedom of speech and political action is still ahead”.
