‘What’s there is there’
Ben Cohen
and
Eve Garrard

Norman Geras as a general rule. Much of his work involved significant dissent from the Marxist tradition in which he located himself, precisely because unvarnished honesty prevented him from glossing over the many troubling ideas and notions that, simply, are there. This openness, in our view, is one of the key reasons why Geras’s extensive writings should be introduced to a wider audience seeking to understand not just past evolutions of political thought but their relevance to the extraordinary shifts now taking place in the twenty-first century. Indeed, Geras

National traditions and political dilemmas
Ben Wellings

, as Matthew Ryan noted, that all case studies are implicitly comparative (Ryan, 2017 : 195), research by interpretive political scientists, as opposed to historical sociologists attuned to politics like Kumar, placed less explicit emphasis on the comparative dimension of analysis and was stronger on traditions of political thought from and within which current thinking about contemporary English nationalism emerged. Making a differentiation between ‘politics’ and ‘the political’, this research work on contemporary English nationalism allowed for fine-grained and in

Ten theses
Ben Cohen
and
Eve Garrard

notwithstanding, the political thought of socialism should now be centred, not on notions of ultimate liberation or of other too distant ambition, but on a world cured of its worst remediable deprivations and horrors. The goal should be modest or minimum utopia. This is a thesis I have suggested in passing once before in the pages of Socialist Register , defining minimum utopia as a form of society which could generally provide for its members the material and social bases of a tolerably contented existence, or (put otherwise) from which the gravest social and political evils

The Cosmopolitan Pan-Africanist
Kweku Ampiah

’s insights are very much about modernisation, but, crucially, he seems to be mainly interested – in contrast to post-colonial African leaders and mainstream Pan-Africanists – in the role of Western liberal political thought and institutions in the political processes of the development of African countries. 61 He believes that contemporary Pan-Africanism is limited by its emphasis on race, and that the movement would do better to embrace all the options that black people need to shape their lives in partnership with others. 62 There is no

The Pan-African Scholar-Activist
Seamus Duggan

. His association with communism began at a relatively early age, and was evident while he attended college in the United States, initially at the Historically Black College, Fisk University in Nashville and New York University (NYU) before going on to the Historically Black College, Howard University, in Washington DC, where he joined the American Communist Party in 1927. The impact of the international communist movement on Padmore’s political thought was clearly spelled out in his 1931 publication, The Life and Struggles of Negro Toilers. 2 Although Padmore would

Pan-African Pioneer
Gilbert M. Khadiagala

. In this chapter, I focus on two related strands of Blyden’s political thought: the first embraces the emancipatory ideas of dignity, self-respect and selfassertiveness that marked his reflections on the state of the black race and the meaning of Africa. These ideas were critical in lending sharpness to the notions of racial identity and pride which informed and suffused Pan-Africanism. Through vigorous articulation of black consciousness and efficacy, Blyden created a universal but essential ideational and cultural bridge between the diaspora and Africa, a bridge

From the Twin Plagues of European Locusts to Africa’s Triple Quest for Emancipation
Adekeye Adebajo

-esteem and self-loathing. The concept of Pan-Africanism developed amid the sweltering oppression of slavery in the Caribbean and the Americas, and was transported back to Africa by its students who went to study in the US and Europe. 5 The subject of Pan-African political thought is one that has historically been under-researched. One of the first contemporary attempts to synthesise these ideas into a single volume was the Malian-Frenchman Guy Martin’s African Political Thought , which was published in 2012. 6 More recently, Hakim Adi, a
