Reviews

"Biel challenges not only Eurocentrism but the corresponding economic determinism that has frequently limited the scope and reach of radical Left social movements. I found myself thinking about the famous phrase, attributed to Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci, to the effect that '...the truth is always revolutionary.' To which I would add, no matter how challenging it may be to address it." --Bill Fletcher, Jr., co-author of Solidarity Divided; syndicated columnist
"Robert Biel's Eurocentrism and the Communist Movement is a
conscientious and well-researched effort to present Eurocentrism as a colonial, racist and social-chauvinist mentality and phenomenon. It decries this problem as having overvalued European developments and influence under the rubric of 'progress', depreciated the history and dynamic of the oppressed peoples and nations, subordinated their revolutionary role and aspirations to the European states and industrial proletariat and in effect favoured colonialism and the slave trade and the entire train of consequences up to neocolonialism and neoliberalism." --Professor Jose Maria Sison, chairperson of the International Coordinating Committee, International League of Peoples' Struggle"
