Bokåret 2018 – faglitteratur for radikale

Gladstone bibliotek i Wales.

Tore Linné Eriksen gir oss ei annerledes vårliste for alle som vil bli kloke og radikale, og som leser bøker på engelsk.

Om Tore Linné Eriksen (9 artikler)
Tore Linné Eriksen er faglitterær forfatter, historiker og professor i utviklingsstudier ved Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus.

Norske forlag legger i disse dager fram sine vårlister, og som vanlig er de ganske beskjedne når det gjelder fagprosa som handler om de store spørsmål: den globale kapitalismens krise, ødelegginga av vår felles klode, en stadig mer uttalt rasisme og alternative måter å forstå samfunnet på. Det er jo fortsatt så mange bøker som må utgis om tv-kjendiser, ikke altfor kjente politikere, mental selvhjelp, fancy mat og den andre verdenskrigen. Og ytterst sjelden blir det oversatt spennende faglitteratur.

For lesere som ikke har noe imot å gi seg i kast med engelskspråklig litteratur, har jeg snust litt i vårlistene til en del av de forlag som vanligvis har mye å by på, i første rekke Verso Books, Pluto Press, Zed Books og Haymarket. Men det er også drøssevis av andre forlag som utgir spennende bøker det er mye å lære av. Sida det i mai er både 50-årsjubileum for 1968 og 200-årsmarkering for Karl Marx, kommer det også godt fram på listene. Det samme gjelder bøker med rasisme som tema. Av plasshensyn har jeg utelatt mer spesialisert litteratur om enkeltland og geografiske regioner. De aller fleste bøkene er overkommelige i pris, dvs. paperback, men det er noen unntak.

I og med at bøkene ikke har kommet ennå, bygger denne lista altså ikke på titler jeg har lest eller trygt kan anbefale. Noen er sikkert bomskudd. Men jeg har en viss erfaring med å vurdere på bakgrunn av forlag, tema eller forfatternavn, så jeg tar sjansen.  

Hvis noen vil supplere, send meg gjerne en epost: [email protected].
