Behind the Myths: The Foundations of Judaism, Christianity and Islam

John Pickard talk about his new book .Behind the Myths: The Foundations of Judaism, Christianity and Islam

Behind the Myths: The Foundations of Judaism, Christianity and Islam was inspired initially by Karl Kautsky’s book,The Foundations of Christianity (1908) although it seeks to update and broaden the scope of the work to include Judaism and Islam.
This book is the fruit of ten years of research and study of all the current literature on the topic, looking at historical works through the critical lens of a Marxist worldview.
John Pickard has been a socialist and activist for just about all of his adult life.
Apart from working as a research scientist in the pharmaceutical industry and as a secondary school teacher of science, he spent sixteen years working as a full-time journalist for the British Marxist newspaper Militant. During that time, he was managing editor of the newspaper during its best years, in the early 1980s, when the miners’ strike raged and the Liverpool City council fought against the then conservative government of Margaret Thatcher.
