About this book

Since the latest crisis of capitalism broke out in 2008, Marx has been back in fashion, and sometimes it seems that his ideas have never been as topical, or as commanding of respect and interest, as they are today. This edited collection arises from one of the largest international conferences dedicated to the bicentenary of Marx’s birth. The volume contains 16 chapters authored by globally renowned scholars and is divided into two parts: I) On the Critique of Politics; II) On the Critique of Political Economy. These contributions, from multiple academic disciplines, offer diverse perspectives on why Marx is still so relevant for our times and make this book a source of great appeal for both expert scholars of Marx as well as students and general readers who are approaching his theories for the first time.

Reviews

“An excellent collection which showcases a lot of the latest scholarship on Marx and his legacy. Comprehensive and incisive, it is an outstanding contribution to its field.” (David McLellan, Professor of Political Theory, University of Kent, UK)

“Addressing both the political dimensions of Marx’s work—notably in Capital, which is often neglected from this perspective—and the significance of his contributions through the critique of political economy, this volume brings together internationally renowned figures in Marx scholarship for genuine dialog and rich, well-informed debates. A truly excellent book.” (George C. Comninel, Professor of Political Theory, York University, Canada)
