When Tariq Ali met CLR James…

December 29, 2015

clrfiles.2We were delighted to spot this piece from Socialist Challenge 3rd July 1980 issue on the Marxists Internet Archive (MIA)

The article features a conversation between Tariq Ali and C.L.R. James which is both interesting and informative. Areas covered include the arrival of C.L.R. James in Britain in the 1930s, his early literary influences, the class nature of the Soviet Union, Stokely Carmichael and, inevitably, cricket.

The full text of the article can be found at the above link.

And here it is in its original form: Socialist Challenge CLR James Interview

An interesting coda was provided a few weeks late in the form of a short letter taking CLR to tasks for his remarks about Geoff Boycott!
