Ernest Mandel interviewed

'A man called Ernest Mandel' is now online and is, as Louis Proyect once noted is 'a film that runs for 40 minutes and consists of an interview given to Frans Buyens in 1972, at a time when Mandel was at the height of his fame and his power. It is a remarkable display of his intellect and forceful personality'. One might quibble with certain formulations of Mandel in the interview - for example over the Chinese and Cuban Revolutions and so on - but overall the interview gives one a great sense of Ernest Mandel as an inspiring and important twentieth century revolutionary Marxist theorist.
