Marcus Rediker Speaks



Marcus Rediker, who not only has to be one of the coolest socialist historians in the world but also has one of the coolest websites in the world full stop, is on tour speaking in the US and the UK, speaking about his new book on slave ships. This tour includes London on November 6th, where he will give a paper on 'The Slave Ship and the Memory of Terror'. Highly recommended.

Edited to add: Duncan Hallas's review of Rediker's first book Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Thanks for this - very good web-site and book is clearly very important. If you get to the seminar hope you give us a report here.

I've posted a brief account of the meeting at Lenin's Tomb, in the comments on his post on slavery.
