Book party: "Recreating Democracy in a Globalized State" edited by
Cliff DuRand and Steve Martinot, with a special perspective from Cuba
Thursday, October 11 @ 7:00 p.m. Center for Marxist Education, 550
Mass. Ave, 2nd floor, Central Square, Cambridge.
Cliff DuRand will present his new book "Recreating Democracy in a
Globalized State" published by Clarity Press in 2012. The book is a
critique of neoliberal corporate globalization, and its
transformation of nation-states into globalized states that serve the
interests of transnational capital above the interests of their
national populations. It addresses key questions such as the role of
the state, global production chains and the emergence of a
transnational capitalist class. DuRand, an expert on Cuba, has
included four chapters by Cuban contributors which give a perspective
from Havana on today's international system and how Cuba fits into
it, including basics of the country's new economic renovation strategy.
DuRand, professor emeritus at Morgan State University in Baltimore,
is a founder of the US Radical Philosophers Association and has
organized annual conferences of RPA with the University of Havana
over the last 20 years.
