Theoretical Weekends continues here at Scission with something a little different. This time we go back to 1974 a time when manywho were active then were trying once again to figure out what in the hell to do next. It was a time of much re-examination. The Weather Underground, too, was going through an internal process of re-examination and change. I am printing below the introduction and the table of contents to Weather's, "The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism." I will add a link to the entire document for those of you who are interested in learning from the past.
