Issue 53, March 1993
AMERICA v EUROPE
As transatlantic rows break out over everything from the war in Bosnia to
trade in oil seed, this issue of Living Marxism focuses on relations
between the USA and the EC.
We highlight the likely points of future conflict, examine changing European
perceptions of America, and look at some developments over there which are
influencing political debate over here - like the resurrection of Malcolm
X, the rise of PC, and the retreat of the 'pro-life' lobby. We welcome other
views on these issues, especially from our growing band of American readers - to
whom we feel no animosity whatsoever.
