Red & Green is the latest in a journal tradition engaging with politics and culture in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Immediately, by dint of reference to an early journal article written by Roger Harrocks, the editorial 'voice' of the introduction is concisous of this critical genealogy. The journal AND university based cultural/literature studies journal produced in the early 1980s, and as both a university professor and a cultural activist, Harrocks is one commentator who continues to be particulary alive to the coexistence of a politics of culture and political economoy.
