Reviews for Communities of Resistance: Writings on Black Struggles for Socialism

You can agree or not agree with Sivanandan (I agree nearly all the time) but what you certainly can't ignore is the voice with which he writes. It has the warmth of the passion of those who know they will never live to wield power, and the clarity of a demand for justice that cannot be silenced. His is a voice that relays the voices of the poor, the salt of the earth and the proud. The colour of his voice cannot be dismissed. Its unique tone carries a reminder of what wealth inevitably loses, of what power based upon injustice fears. Read, listen ... --John Berger
