Marx for a Post-Communist Era by Stefan Sullivan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When the Iron Curtain collapsed, capitalism reigned triumphant and the End of History was declared. However, peace and prosperity have been short-lived. In recent years, anti-globalization protests have returned violence to the streets, nations have been ravaged by ethnic genocide, and fundamentalist radicals have intensified their war with the West. In this uncertain climate, Marx for a Postcommunist Era does not doomsay. But it does seriously question the ability of market forces to deliver the greatest good to the greatest number. It rejects the class hatred and social engineering that has discredited Marxism in the past. But, it does argue that Marx's emphasis on social equity, real democracy and human capital still forcefully resonate in the modern day. Marx for a Postcommunist Era combines a deep understanding of Marxist thought with journalistic engagement in real-world themes. This comprehensive and timely book will be of interest to students and academics in the areas of philosophy, sociology, politics and cultural studies, and to anyone with an interest in Marx and his legacy.
