The April 2012 issue of Race & Class contains two key articles.
Andrew Smith examines the way that moments of military defeat have been represented and put to use in the context of the history of modern imperialism. He argues that the representation of imperial defeat has been crucial in justifying further expansion. Saladin M. Ambar examines Malcolm X’s visit to the Oxford Union and his affirmation of the proposition that ‘Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice; moderation in the pursuit of justice no virtue.’
