Anti-Capitalist Britain is a collection of accessible and

informative essays on the emerging anti-capitalist movement in

the UK.Through accounts of recent anti-capitalist protests and

organizations, often by those involved, the book considers the

current state of radical politics in the UK. Its underlying theme is

the emerging relationship between Marxist and other radical

organizations and the disparate anti-globalization, anti-capitalist

and direct action groups fronting campaigns against institutions

such as the World Trade Organization and the G8.The study

argues that there has been a shift towards anarchism on the

British left and elsewhere.While it has a primarily domestic focus,

the book also considers British anti-capitalism in an international

context. It therefore includes contributions from authors whose

focus is beyond the domestic and who participate in wider

campaigns.

BRITAIN

EDITED BY

JOHN CARTER AND

DAVE MORLAND

Anti-Capitalist Britain is an account of the

state of left and radical politics in the UK, delivered

through a study of recent anti-capitalist protests

and movements.The book is a collaborative project

involving writers from various universities in the

UK and recent participants in anti-capitalist actions.

The introduction examines the origins of the current

protest movement and its re-emergence from the

‘Victory of the West’ and the free market. Caroline

Lucas and Colin Hines then critique the dominant

neoliberal version of globalization from a green and

localist perspective.This analysis is complemented by

the work of Molly Scott Cato, who explores positive

and sustainable alternatives to capitalism and the free

market.Amir Saeed also takes the new geopolitics as

his starting point, examining the difficulties created

for Asian Britons after 9/11 and the subsequent

‘War on Terror’.

Other contributors consider the different forms

of protest and activism in current anti-capitalist and

green politics. John Carter and Dave Morland’s

overview of the UK anti-capitalist scene detects an

emerging shift towards a more libertarian mode of

struggle. One source of this is set out in Derek

Wall’s account of the Russian theorist Mikhail

Bakhtin, whose theories loom large in the ongoing

Carnival against Capitalism. Jon Purkis focuses on

the role of anticonsumerist campaigns, finding

echoes of radical movements from the English Civil

War period. Paul Taylor examines the creative ways

in which electronic ‘hacktivists’ have undermined

corporations and the powerful. How all this

diversity and seeming fragmentation produces a

functioning ‘movement’ is the concern of Alex Plows,

who explores the way in which groupings,

communities and individuals have supported each

other through fluid activist networks.The book

concludes with a vibrant account of the Anti-G8

mobilization in Genoa, written by one of the

participants.

David Stack is a lecturer in Modern British

History at the University of Reading. He has

previously taught at Queen Mary, University

of London and Keele University, and has

written widely on both the history of the

left and popular science in the nineteenth

century. His first book, Nature and Artifice:

The life and thought of Thomas Hodgskin,

1787–1869, was published by the Royal

Historical Society in 1998 and he is currently

writing a biography of the nineteenth-century

Scottish phrenologist George Combe.

Darwinism and socialism were the two most exciting ideas

of the late nineteenth century. One tore down a model of

nature that was static and unchanging; the other sought to do

the same for society.Almost inevitably the ideas of Darwinism

and socialism became intertwined in the period from 1859 to

1914.The modern socialist movement was a product of the

Darwinian age and most leading socialists of the period had

studied and accepted Darwinism before reaching their political

maturity.This was true of socialists both in Britain and

beyond – including Annie Besant, Ramsay MacDonald, Eduard

Bernstein, Karl Kautsky, Jack London and Prince Peter

Kropotkin. Each inevitably carried something of their

Darwinism over into their understanding of socialism. In this

study of the relationship between the two ideas, David Stack

argues that the contribution of Darwinism to the thought of

the British left has been underestimated. Darwinism played a

crucially important role both in the shift from radicalism to

socialism that occurred in the late nineteenth century and in

enabling MacDonald and others to develop a distinctive

socialist position, marked off from liberalism to the right

and Marxism to the left.

DAVID

STACK

In this first study of the relationship

between Darwinism and the left in Britain,

David Stack argues that Darwinism provided

the ‘constitutive metaphor’ within which

modern socialism was developed.The organic

and evolutionary language of Darwinism, it

is shown, provided the discursive space in

which the new ideology of socialism was

probed, explored and developed in the

period from 1859 through to 1914.

The relationship between socialism and

Darwinism was not instrumental – with

socialists simply picking and choosing

convenient ideas to conform to their political

prejudices – but isomorphic, involving a real

cross-fertilization of ideas and concepts from

the biological to the sociological and back

again.This process was especially evident in

writings of those socialists such as Alfred

Russel Wallace, Emile Vandervelde and

Prince Peter Kropotkin who were also

accomplished scientists, but also helps us

better appreciate the stance of amateur

enthusiasts such as Annie Besant, Jack London

and Ramsay MacDonald.

The First Darwinian Left demonstrates how the

discursive boundaries imposed by Darwinism

profoundly influenced the construction of

socialist ideology in Britain: marking it off

from the older radical tradition, as well as

distinguishing it from liberalism on the right

and Marxism on the left. In particular, the

crucial role of Ramsay MacDonald in

developing and disseminating a distinctively

Darwinian understanding of socialism among

the membership of the Independent

Labour Party is analysed.

Fair play and foul?

John Elder

The Nordic countries remain unique in independently managing and operating their

health care complaints mechanisms and medical regulatory bodies. They are also almost

on their own in having established statutory no-fault patient compensation schemes as

an alternative to the potentially expensive and risky civil litigation route. Moreover,

these same nations (Sweden excepted) are among the few on the planet where sweeping

patients’ rights set in stone are in place.

Sadly, the enlightened example long set by lawmakers in Denmark, Finland, Norway,

Sweden and Iceland on all these issues is still not being matched by their counterparts in

the United Kingdom – or, for that matter, anywhere else in Europe.

For instance, ‘more’ rather than total independence is the theme of the latest British

reforms following the sustained public excoriation of the previous health care

complaints and medical regulatory systems – in particular the routinely inequitable

outcomes they produced for complainants. Self-regulation continues to be the

predominant force in the operation of these new procedures. As before, only a

comparatively small proportion of complaints lodged with the National Health Service

in the UK will receive the attention of the recently established independent review bodies

– where these have been set up. Furthermore, regulation of doctors and nurses remains

in the hands of their existing, albeit extensively reformed, regulatory bodies under

whose patronage the consideration of allegations about these professionals is also being

maintained.

The position about patients’ rights in the United Kingdom is nowhere near so

contrasting. Nonetheless, instead of a specific set of comprehensive legal entitlements

the interests of patients and those who attend to their clinical needs are provided for,

collectively, via legislation, case law, set ethical criteria and health service policy rules.

However, the proposals for a patient compensation and redress scheme as an alternative

to the existing system of civil damages is a big step in the right direction – even if,

initially, it turns out to be a comparatively limited arrangement and then not of the

all-encompassing, no-fault variety.

Fair play and foul? examines all these issues in some detail and also focuses on an area

that had not been in the limelight before or during the reforms that began to take effect

in Britain since the turn of the century. It seems to have always been assumed that the

Health Service Ombudsman is above reproach. But is this really justified? The book

explores vital aspects of the organization that this key independent complaints arbiter

fronts in a way that has not been done before and raises matters that question the

body’s seemingly high standing.

In the process of examining the subject at hand, the book accepts that healthcare is not

the only part of public life in Britain where self-regulation still prevails, and provides

examples of the practice elsewhere in society. Perhaps, foremost among these cases of

institutional self-regulation is that relating to the British parliament itself, the body that

holds the key to enlightened public reform in all its guises.

Fair play and foul? may not be a good read in the accepted sense, but if it succeeds in

helping to bring forward the day when British citizens are conferred with the same level

of entitlements in their relationship with health care that their counterparts in certain

other European societies take for granted, it will have achieved its end.
