Eclipse and re-emergence of the communist movement - Gilles Dauvé and François Martin

France, 1968.

A book by François Martin and "Jean Barrot" (aka Gilles Dauvé), influential since the 1970s among the English-speaking ultra-left. The themes include the refusal of work, the legacy of left communism/the ultra-left, and a restatement of revolution, as not merely a singular event, but the unleashing of a dynamic – 'communisation'.
