Verso Radical Thinkers – series 8 and call for suggestions

From Sebastian Budgen at Verso – comments below are fine and I’ll pass them on:

Series 8 of Radical Thinkers will consist in the following:

Spectre of Hegel: Early Writings –  Louis Althusser

Hegemony and Socialist Strategy: Towards a Radical Democratic Politics – Ernesto Laclau & Chantal Mouffe

The Philosophy of Marx – Étienne Balibar

Political Writings: 1919–1929 – Georg Lukács

Screened Out – Jean Baudrillard

State, Power, Socialism – Nicos Poulantzas

Hatred of Democracy – Jacques Rancière

Freud and the Non-European – Edward Said

The Melancholy Science: An Introduction to the Thought of Theodor W. Adorno – Gillian Rose

The Concept of Nature in Marx – Alfred Schmidt

Women, Resistance, Revolution: A History of Women and Revolution in the Modern World – Sheila Rowbotham

The Ego and His Own: The Case of the Individual Against Authority – Max Stirner

Time to nominate new candidates. They must be:

– out of print
– already in English (translated or orginally English)
– generally in the “Theory” category
– important or interesting
– preferably not ridiculously long

They don’t have to be previous NLB/Verso titles. Suggestions of titles by female authors particularly welcome.

Please check first the previous sets

    Hello Stuart,

    Thanks for this. I would like to suggest that “Ideology and Rationality in the History of the Life Sciences,” by Canguilhem, is long overdue for a reprinting. I don’t know if Canguilhem was “radical” himself enough to be included in such a series, but I think the volume might fit. Also, Therborn’s “Science, Class, and Society.” Both of these are long out of print, and are might be useful to a new generation of students interested in the relations between politics and science. Thanks again!

  2. maoquai says:

    Nancy Hartsock, “The Feminist Standpoint: Developing the Ground for a Specifically Feminist Historical Materialism” (1983)

  3. nullibiquite says:

    Geoffrey Bennington’s “Legislations”

  4. Dave Mesing says:

    One that I think would be really excellent is Sohn-Rethel’s Intellectual and Manual Labor. I have heard rumors that there may be some translations of Sohn-Rethel that are forthcoming, but this is a very important text that is extremely difficult to find.

    A second suggestion that may be a bit of a stretch is a book entitled “Good Times! Bad Times!! An Introduction to the Capitalist Crisis and What it Means For Us,” with contributions from Federici, Tronti, Badiou, and Caffentzis. I have very little information about it–just stumbled across it the other day and it looks interesting.

  5. nullibiquite says:

    Also: “Galileo Studies” and “Newtonian Studies,” both by Alexandre Koyre.

  6. radicaltherborn says:

    Maybe Therborn’s From Marxism to Post-Marxism? or else anything else by Therborn – Why some peoples are more unemployed than others? if you can get it.

  7. radicaltherborn says:

    Also, maybe Eurocommunism and the State by Carrillo, if possible?

  8. rtally1 says:

    C.L.R. James’s Notes on Dialectics (1948).
