new pamphlet: ‘nationalisation or workers’ management?’

26 09 2008

We have produced a pamphlet on the subject of workers’ control and management, counterposing working-class power exercised from below to nationalisations by the bourgeois state.

The pamphlet, costing £1, includes the following articles:

Review of the LEAP pamphlet on social ownership for the 21st century

The struggle for self-management (by Solidarity)

An exchange between Solidarity and the Institute for Workers’ Control

The ambiguities of workers’ control (by Solidarity)

The Harrogate debates: the 1977 debate between the then secretary of state for energy Tony Benn and Arthur Scargill and Peter Heathfield from the NUM on workers’ control. Includes summaries of contributions from the floor.

As indicated above, we have posted some of the contents on this website already, but we have not yet uploaded the Harrogate debates piece, which represents about half the pamphlet’s length.

If you would like a copy of the 26 page pamphlet, email or write to us at The Commune, 2nd Floor, 145-157 St John Street, London EC1V 4PY.

Looks good, solidarity’s materials hasn’t been published for ages because they have no organization who pretends to be their successor

Thanks, the International Communists also dont pretend to be their sucessor anymore than we are of the Institute of Workers Control, being a tribute band is not our project.

Note that (after some delay!) it is now possible to download a PDF file of the ‘nationalisation or workers’ management?’ pamphlet.

Just click on the picture of the front cover.

The text and images appear higher up on the page than on the printed version (no clue why) but it is still perfectly legible.
