Paul Le Blanc

MRZine August 28th
Interview with Paul LeBlanc by Michael D. Yates

Paul LeBlanc is what I have called an "organic intellectual," a scholar and activist who has risen directly out of the working class. Paul is the author of many books, including A Short History of the U.S. Working Class (Humanity Books, 1999) and Black Liberation and the American Dream (Humanity Books 2003), and is an internationally known and respected historian of the life and works of Rosa Luxemburg. Paul has been active all his adult life in antiwar, antiracist, and socialist movements. He is currently an Associate Professor of History and Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at La Roche College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This interview was conducted by email in August 2006.

Michael Yates (MY): Paul, tell us how you came to write Marx, Lenin, and the Revolutionary Experience?

Read the rest here, its worth it for anyone intersted in the hitory of the American left.
