A few days ago, I mentioned Hamza Alavi's Capitalism and Colonial 
Production (Croon Helm, 1982). Jairus Banaji and he were engaged in 
important arguments twenty five years ago.
There is a website address for some of Alavi's writings. From my 
cursory perusal of some of these writings, one striking feature of 
his thinking seems to be independence of thought manifest in his 
attempts to skewer orthodoxies, right and left.
Of course his writings on colonialism and the rise of capitalism are 
of less immediate interest than his analysis of the US Pakistani 
military relation.


all the best, r
