Red Library: A Political Education Podcast for Today's Left

Nov 25, 2019

We are joined by our good comrade, Max, this week in the library to tackle a work of the brilliant Marxist sociologist and Big Dawg of Cultural Studies, Stuart Hall. Comrade Max joins us to lead a discussion on Policing the Crisis: Mugging, the State, and Law and Order by Hall from 1978 which is terrifyingly relevant to the political landscape of racism and neoliberal capitalism today.

We discuss a wide range of ideas and concepts from Hall's work including moral panics, signification and political discourse, immigration, race and racism, policing, theories of the State, and the ongoing process of economic crises and their cultural effects.

This one is HAWT FIRE.
