About this book

This book presents a Marx that is in many ways different from the one popularized by the dominant currents of twentieth-century Marxism. The dual aim of this edited volume is to contribute to a new critical discussion of some of the classical themes of Marx’s thought and to develop a deeper analysis of certain questions to which relatively little attention has been paid until recently.

Contributions of globally renowned scholars, from nine countries and multiple academic disciplines, offer diverse and innovative perspectives on Marx’s points of view about ecology, migration, gender, the capitalist mode of production, the labour movement, globalization, social relations, and the contours of a possible socialist alternative. 

The result is a collection that will prove indispensable for all specialists in the field and which suggests that Marx’s analyses are arguably resonating even more strongly today than they did in his own time.

Reviews

“These essays, skillfully assembled by Marcello Musto, demonstrate the resilient power of Marxist ideas in contemporary contexts of battles over gender equality, migrant rights, and saving the environment of our planet. Much recommended.”—Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz

“This important volume expands our notions of Marx and of the present crisis with probing and luminous treatments of gender and the family; environmental destruction and capitalism; dispossession, migration, and nativism in relation to authoritarianism; and the communist alternative."

Kevin B. Anderson, author of Marx at the Margins


“In this book Marcello Musto has brought together prestigious scholar-activists who guide us through the frontiers of struggle for our times, from gender and race to migration and the climate crisis. We learn to theorize capital’s predation and can therefore recommit ourselves to its undoing.”

Tithi Bhattacharya, co-author of Feminism for the 99%
