Beyond Marx
Theorising the Global Labour Relations of the Twenty-First Century
A wide ranging and deeply engaged examination of the role slaves and unfree workers play in the global capitalist economy.
Capitalism has proven much more resilient than Marx anticipated, and the working class has hardly lived up to his hopes. What might a critique of the political economy of labour look like that critically reviews Capitalism's entire history while moving beyond Eurocentrism? In this volume twenty-two authors offer their thoughts on this question, both from a historical and theoretical perspective.
