The Ice Bloc

Musing about utopia on a stop towards the end of the Earth.

Reading Recs

A big ol’ list of mostly NZ related books I personally recommend. Broken down into must-reads, highly recommended, and books that might be of interest. On top of that there’s a section for NZ films (mostly documentaries), and I might chuck up a section on general theory/history later on. I’ll be linking to my reviews of texts in question where relevant, and I’ll link to digital copies of those texts where they exist via a *. Originally, this section was broken down by topic – simply listing all the NZ related texts I could find for each given topic. Now that I’ve started semi-regularly reviewing books I’ve rejigged it, but here’s the original intro section anyway:

This reading list is to address the serious, and perhaps growing, gaps in the political knowledge of New Zealand on the part of the local left. Too often left analysis in this country, be it of the reformists or revolutionaries, betrays a distinct lack of historical awareness. This is neither sectarian accusation, defeatism, nor snide elitism. We are presently in a period of advanced left decay; few in number and institutionally weak. It is only understandable that considerable ideological disorientation has set in as a result. But we must be clear in our purpose, our goal, and our prospects. Though capitalism is in a state of prolonged economic crisis, that does not make the goal of overcoming it any less a monumental task. We need a solid grasp of international politics, history and economics. Equally so we need to understand those trends within New Zealand itself, and how they interact with global capitalism. I do not claim to have a solution ready to go, but I should hope that I may help (even in some small fashion) to lay the foundations for one.
