There is no socialism after liberation, socialism is the process through which liberation is won. Each of the essays in Communities of Resistance acts as a critical reaffirmation of socialist politics as the context for questions of race and resistance.

The left itself is under scrutiny here--from a black perspective. A series of powerful interventions covers many of the issues which have confronted radical politics in the 1980s: inner-city uprisings, the demand for black sections in the Labour Party, local government anti-racism, the move to a common European market. This collection included incisive critiques of contemporary Marxism: All that Melts into Air is Solid: The Hokum of New Times of post-colonial development, and of the Eurocentric assessment of imperialism.
