Dissent, Resistance, Insurrection and Mutiny A Survey of Military Organization and Revolt

A follow-up to the discussion on Engels' war and military thought, this will primarily cover 19-21st century struggles within the military against imperialist wars and for socialist revolution and a new military. While the focus will be on specific instances, a key emphasis is the role of socialist organizations in these struggles. Some historical patterns and lesson are indicated from these many, but little know instances. Working class insurrections will also be briefly examined. While the "big" military revolts such as during the three Russian revolutions and the Vietnam war are briefly delved into, the many more unfamiliar struggles will also be covered. An example of the latter are the experiences of the 2nd International's organizing within the military against anti-labor repression and colonial wars. Suggestions for socialists are made for their contemporary military work.
The Presenter, Al Sargis, founder-director of the Friedrich Engels Institute of Marxist War And Military Analysis (FEIMWAMA), served a hitch in the Marines before doing anti-war work among soldiers and sailors during the Vietnam War.
