Socialist Reading......

Yo friends! I need some advice from the more political active of ya! (Looking at Malc, Grim and Adam primarily I'm guessing on this one...)

I would like to have some books suggestions on the following:

Cuban Revolution and the Revolutionary Movement in South/Central America
France 1968 (Student and Workers Protests)
Pro-active Socialism and underground movements in the 60's through to modern day

Many thanks for tips!

I can offer a couple of suggestions on Italian 60/70s student/workers movements and subsequent "terrorist" organisations... the only problem is, I'm not sure said books have been translated into English (in fact I'm pretty sure they haven't) :-(

Other than that, I've just finished a good book on the political aspects of Shelley's work, titled Red Shelley, the author is Paul Foot.

In any case, (in the unlikely event you do not know it yet), for Socialist and generally leftwing readings I stronly suggest you pay a visit to Bookmarks, at 1 Bloomsbury Street, WC1 (just off New Oxford St), website http://www.bookmarks.uk.com/cgi/store/bookmark.cgi. It is THE ultimate socialist bookshop in London, and where I buy most of my books.

Thanks for the tips. I'll have a look at Bookmarks website over the weekend as I doubt I'll be in town during opening hours in the near future.
