About this book

This book aims to restore Marx’s original emancipatory idea of socialism, conceived as an association of free individuals centered on working people’s self- emancipation after the demise of capitalism. Marxist scholar Paresh Chattopadhyay argues that, Marx’s (and Engels’s) ideas have been deliberately warped with misinterpretation not only by those who resent these ideas but more consequentially by those who have come to power under the banner of Marx, calling themselves communists. This book challenges those who have inaccurately revised Marx’s ideas justify their own pursuit of political power.

Reviews

“This newest book … pulls together his previous thinking on the issue, and, given the space a book provides, presents his views more clearly and in greater depth than any of his previous works. … This book should be read by anyone interested in the essence of Marxism: the transcendence of capitalism to establish a human-centered post-capitalist society.” (Al Campbell, Science & Society, Vol. 82 (04), October, 2018)

“Paresh Chattopadhyay’s Marx’s Associated Mode of Production: A Critique of Marxism stands out as a unique perspective, since it outlines the epistemological mechanism to understand Marx’s original repertoire, and then compares this with what occurred in 20th century history. … this book is a critical exposition of Chattopadhyay’s deep understanding of Marx’s original works. … Marx’s Associated Mode of Production is indeed a classic of a master Marxologist steeped in the original works of Marx.” (Murzban Jal, Economic and Political Weekly, Vol. 53 (18), May, 2018)
