The Dialectics of State Capitalism

Writings on Marxist Theory, 1940–1956

By C.L.R. James

Admirers of C.L.R. James have long known that he developed a theory of the Soviet Union as a state capitalist society. But his most important writings on the topic have long been unobtainable. Incorporating material overlooked by previous accounts of his life and thought, The Dialectics of State Capitalism provides the definitive guide to a central element of James’s work.
