Aufheben review "Fascism/Anti-Fascism" and ask does antifascism necessarily entail supporting one face of the state against another?
A book by François Martin and "Jean Barrot" (aka Gilles Dauvé), influential since the 1970s among the English-speaking ultra-left. The themes include the refusal of work, the legacy of left communism/the ultra-left, and a restatement of revolution, as not merely a singular event, but the unleashing of a dynamic – 'communisation'.
This translation of the first 10 sections of Dauvé's text '« Bilan » Contre-Révolution en Espagne' was first published by Black Cat Press in Edmonton Canada in 1982, without the author's knowledge, under a new title, 'Fascism/Antifascism'. Subsequently it was reprinted in the U.K. by Pirate Publications. For a more up-to-date reflection of Dauvé's views on the same themes, see his June 1998 text 'When Insurrections Die', which is a reworking of the original text on 'Bilan'.
