Returns of Marxism
Marxist Theory in a Time of Crisis
Inspiring and thoroughly researched collection of contemporary Marxist essays that engage the struggle of our times.

Marx's thought is being reappropriated and reinterpreted by a new generation. In this wide-ranging collection scholar-activists from around the world return to Marx, but do so in a way that avoids a dogmatic approach to his writing—focusing instead on what is of relevance to today's struggles against capitalism.

Contributors: Riccardo Bellofiore, Roland Boer, Chiara Bonfiglioli, Guglielmo Carchedi, Katja Diefenbach, Jan Drahokoupil, Peter Drucker, Sara R. Farris, Michael Heinrich, Laura Horn, Joost Kircz, Gal Kirn, Geert Reuten, Tom Rockmore, Peter D. Thomas, Bastiaan van Apeldoorn, Marcel van der Linden, Jeff Webber, Frieder Otto Wolf, Steve Wright, Wei Xiaoping

Reviews

  • “[T}he collection of essays presented in this volume aims to demonstrate the richness, rigour and importance of Marx’s thought for developing alternative worldviews and politics in the present. We hope the reader will find these texts interesting and useful not only in her efforts to make sense of the world that surrounds us, but also in her fight against the many forms of injustice brought about by capitalism.”
    —Sara R. Farris, from the introduction
