Poetry by Kay Gabriel Photography by Luc Delahaye Art by Bahar Behbahani Fiction by Katie Kane and David Naimon
Richard Seymour: ‘Caedmon’s Dream: On the Politics of Style’ Politics and the English language – among others – redux. Bromides, ornamentaphobia and the elitism of ‘clarity’.
Robert Knox: ‘Against Law-sterity’ Beyond economics and ideology to a jurisprudential horizon. The law of austerity and the austere grounds of law.
Esther Leslie: ‘Men of Doubt: Fortini, Benjamin, Brecht’ Fragments, scraps, posters and poems, certainty and its discontents, ethics and hunger and a neglected angel.
Barnaby Raine: ‘Jewophobia’ Navigating sound, fury and fear, the bad faith and even good, in an unstable debate, striving for a theory worthy of the name.
China Miéville: ‘Silence in Debris: Towards an Apophatic Marxism’ Put your finger to your lips. Epistemology, yearning and liberation beyond the limits of words.
Asad Haider: ‘Eight Theses on Identity’ The universal, the particular, the reactionary and emancipatory in a category overused and under strain.
Alex Alvarez Taylor: ‘The Left and Louis-Ferdinand Céline’ On the eloquence of an enemy, the politics of publishing, and radical reading beyond moralism and special pleading.
Sivamohan Valluvan and Malcolm James: ‘Left Problems, Nationalism and the Crisis’ Towards a chronology of toxicity, of bad answers to good questions and the seduction of exclusion amid political decline.
Daniel Hartley: ‘The Person, Historical Time and the Universalisation of Capital’ History and histories, universality and particularities in the overdetermined person, subaltern and/or otherwise, itself.
Yvan Najiels: ‘The Demise of the International Proletariat of France: Talbot as Political Turning Point’ Strike-making, strike-breaking, the rise of race and racism in the Republic and the perfidy of the so-called Left.
Parastou Saberi: ‘Urban Geopolitics and ‘The Immigrant’: Lessons from Toronto’ Space, minority-management and maple-syrup racism.
Joe Hayns and Selim Nadi: Interview with Selim Nadi of the Parti des Indigènes de la République ‘Not outside, but against’. Testimony from and of the vilified and unvanquished.
“A fresh voice from the radical left … provocative stuff, and yet somehow also incredibly reasonable, pointing out injustice and incompetence across the political spectrum and asking why can’t we expect better?” – Steve Watson, STACK magazines
“The insightful and compelling pieces collected here provide readers a wealth of ideas and material to help salvage this badly broken world.” – Zak Bronson, Los Angeles Review of Books
“Salvage has arrived. It’s doubtless the most beautiful and exciting journal which I have seen in the last years. I knew its excellent reputation, but the journal exceeds my expectations. Congratulations! I am very happy and proud of belonging to its list of contributors.” – Enzo Traverso, author of Fire and Blood
