Saku Pinta -- Book Launch

Saturday Nov 18 2017 7:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Travel Alcove

Winnipeg launch of Libertarian Socialism: Politics in Black and Red (PM Press) co-presented by the Winnipeg branch of the Industrial Workers of the World.

The history of anarchist-Marxist relations is usually told as a history of factionalism and division. This collection of essays, based on original research and written especially for this collection, reveals some of the enduring sores in the revolutionary socialist movement in order to explore the important, too often neglected left-libertarian currents that have thrived in revolutionary socialist movements.

Co-editor and contributor Saku Pinta is an independent scholar based in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He gained his PhD from Loughborough University in 2013. His research has concerned left and labour movement ideas and history with a focus on libertarian communism and the intersections between anarchism and Marxism. Most recently, his research has concentrated on the history of the Finnish North American left and the Industrial Workers of the World union in the twentieth century.

Pinta’s essays appear in the anthologies Anarchist Pedagogies: Collective Actions, Theories, and Critical Reflections on Education and Wobblies of the World: A Global History of the IWW. He also is the writer, researcher, and co-producer of the documentary To My Son in Spain.
