Scott McLemee has analysed neo-con David Horowitz's new book The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America, which incidently includes English Professor James Holstun, whose work on Class Struggle in the English Revolution I have mentioned on this blog. Apparently Holstun is objectively 'Islamofascist' like most of the other Professors on the list. Just as Stalinists attacked 'Trotsky-Fascists' in the 1930s, now the big bogey man of apologists for imperial power is 'Islamofascism'.*
In other news, Maps has kindly replied to my 'top ten current favourite revolutions', highlighting ten revolutions in the twentieth century that I missed but were pretty damn important/sexy. Far more interesting to read about than my efforts.
*I was once described as being in favour of 'Islamo-Trot-Fascism' by a drunk Welsh ex-Stalinist neo con because I was a member of Respect. Has anyone else been called this - or do I get some sort of reward for being called it first?
