Notă biografică

Mike Marqusee‘s books include Wicked Messenger: Bob Dylan and the 1960s, Redemption Song: Muhammad Ali and the Spirit of the Sixties, War Minus the Shooting, Anyone but England and If I Am Not for Myself. He is a regular contributor to the Guardian and writes a fortnightly column for the Indian newspaper The Hindu. He lives in London.


“In this extraordinary journey through family memory and New York left-wing history, Marqusee introduces us to unforgettable Jewish heretics and heroes, including his brawling grandfather and the Prophet Amos ... Both in the eloquence of his writing and the deep humanism of his vision, he stands shoulder to shoulder with the spirits of Isaac Deutscher and Edward Said.”—Mike Davis

“A rare and precious work.”—Brian Klug, The Independent

“The personal story is rich and exciting, ranging from the Bronx to suburbia to Pakistan, Morocco and finally London. The thinking about ‘what it means to be a Jew in the 21st century’ is bold and innovative. No one can read this book without having his or her perspective on the Middle East, religion and the left, expanded.”—John Nichols, The Nation

“A tour de force of political and cultural analysis ... a manifesto for a whole generation of Jewish radical activists who refuse to be deterred by the threat of being labeled, and libeled, as self-haters.”—Daphna Baram, The Guardian

“When I had finished this book I wanted to cheer ... If Jewish adolescents got Marqusee’s book as a bar mitzvah present, there might be a chance of avoiding the repetition of history’s mistakes.”—Michael Kustow, The Independent

“A fascinating, if quirky exploration of the Zionism-versus-anti-Zionism debate, to which it adds fire.”—Jewish Chronicle

“His vigorous voice speaks clearly and decisively for the old Jewish radical tradition.”—The Times [London]

“Erudite and well-argued ... provocative and timely.”—Times Literary Supplement

“Adventurers, charlatans, schemers, and activists abound ... The true stories Dolin spins rival anything Hollywood has come up with on the topic ... entertaining and informative ... Fur, Fortune, and Empire gives what it promises. It is an illuminating analysis of how the beaver and its fur-bearing colleagues became the true ‘founding fathers’ of North America.”—Dennis Rizzo, The Internet Review of Books

“Marqusee is clearly a deep yet broad thinker in the classical intellectual mould, and there is food for thought in every chapter.”—Joanne Naiman, Outlook
"A tour de force of political and cultural analysis - penetrating and intellectually honest." Daphna Baram, Guardian "When I had finished this book I wanted to cheer... If Jewish adolescents got Marqusee's book as a barmitzvah present, there might be a chance of avoiding the repetition of history's mistakes." Michael Kustow, Independent "His vigorous voice speaks clearly and decisively for the old Jewish radical tradition." The Times
