What's New: You have to be audacious
by Michael Stewart | October 21, 2014
Earlier this month on Twitter, NPA city councillor George Affleck ripped into Gregor Robertson for being good looking. Sadly, the level of political debate in Vancouver doesn't have much more to offer than jibes about good, strong, clean teeth.

Despite endless conferences, treaties and solemn promises, greenhouse gas emissions have risen 61 per cent since 1990, and the rate of increase is accelerating.

What's New: Socialist Register 2015: Transforming Classes
| October 19, 2014
This 51st annual Socialist Register completes the investigation of class formation and class strategies on a global scale begun with last year's volume. Deploying an understanding of class as an historical social process -- rather than an abstract sociological category or statistical artifact -- the essays here investigate the concrete ways that working classes are being made and remade in the struggles against neoliberalism, austerity and authoritarian governments.
