Abstract

This article was sent to us at Monthly Review by Andreas Jorgensen weeks before his sudden demise. Our friend jacques Hersh of Aalborg University provided this farewell tribute to this respected scholar and activist: The death of Andreas Jorgensen, in September 1996, is a great loss for the Danish Left. From his youth, Andreas was involved in politics. Educated in Paris during the 1950s where he acquired a great deal of his political background, Andreas throughout his life remained a dedicated socialist and anti-imperialist. From his early commitment as a member of the Danish Communist Party (until developments in the Soviet Union made him leave the Party) he retained his original engagement with the cause of socialism. In the 1960s, he founded two leftist influential magazines: Dialog and Politisk Reoy. He also played an important role in the establishment of first the Socialist People's Party and then the Left Socialist Party.
