Obituary Leslie Fishman by Nina Fishman This article appeared in the Guardian on Tuesday March 18 2008 on p 42 of the Obituaries section. It was last updated at 00:31 on March 18 2008. My father, Les Fishman, who has died aged 86, was not only an academic; he remained all his life an activist. His connections with the Ceramics Workers' Union in the Potteries and the Keele Labour party and Fabians were as important to him as Keele University, where he was professor of economics (1969-88). A longtime member of the US Communist party (CPUSA), he remained a passionate believer in socialism, but looked at new developments in capitalism with lively interest.
