This week we welcome Mike MacNair to the show. Mike is a long time political activist, author and Tutor in Law at St Hugh's College. He is also a regular contributor to the Weekly Worker newspaper. Today we discuss Mikes' seminal work: ‘Revolutionary Strategy: Marxism and the challenge of left Unity’. We talk about the history of the 20th century and how, as Marxists, we can hope to learn from its failures. We will be studying this book as part of our upcoming Reading Group series, so get yourself a copy - it’s an amazing book.

Today we bash through as best we can Chapter 9 of Andrew Kliman's marxist masterpiece "Reclaiming Marx's Capital". This is a probably the densest of all the chapters and tables abound like a mofo. I've included the initial tables as the artwork for this episode. Many of these tables are extremely similar and repeatedly display similar phenomena, so don't worry about them toooo much. All the tables can be accessed by clicking on the image links below:
