The book is a compilation of Xi Jinping's major works from November 15, 2012 to June 13, 2014. It includes, speeches, talks, interviews, instructions, and correspondence for a total of 70 pieces.

This unique collection is the first to bring attention to Antonio Gramsci's work within geographical debates. Presenting a substantially different reading to Gramsci scholarship, the collection forges a new approach within human geography, environmental studies and development theory. * Offers the first sustained attempt to foreground Antonio Gramsci's work within geographical debates* Demonstrates how Gramsci articulates a rich spatial sensibility whilst developing a distinctive approach to geographical questions* Presents a substantially different reading of Gramsci from dominant post-Marxist perspectives, as well as more recent anarchist and post-anarchist critiques * Builds on the emergence of Gramsci scholarship in recent years, taking this forward through studies across multiple continents, and asking how his writings might engage with and animate political movements today* Forges a new approach within human geography, environmental studies and development theory, building on Gramsci's innovative philosophy of praxis.

Grafting the Marxian idea that private property is coercive onto the liberal imperative of individual liberty, this new thesis from one of America's foremost intellectuals conceives a revised definition of justice that recognizes the harm inflicted by capitalism's hidden coercive structures. * Maps a new frontier in moral philosophy and political theory* Distills a new concept of justice that recognizes the iniquities of capitalism* Synthesis of elements of Marxism and Liberalism will interest readers in both camps* Direct and jargon-free style opens these complex ideas to a wide readership.

  • Acknowledgments Editors' Introduction Note on Sources Abbreviations The Dunayevskaya-Marcuse Correspondence, 1954-78 The Dunayevskaya-Fromm Correspondence, 1959-78 Appendix Marcuse's Preface to Dunayevskaya's Marxism and Freedom Dunayevskaya's Review of Marcuse's Soviet Marxism Dunayevskaya's Review of Marcuse's One-Dimensional Man Fromm's Foreword to the German Edition of Dunayevskaya's Philosophy and Revolution Dunayevskaya's "In Memoriam" to Marcuse Dunayevskaya's "In Memoriam" to Fromm.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
This book presents for the first time the correspondence during the years 1954 to 1978 between the Marxist-Humanist and feminist philosopher Raya Dunayevskaya (1910-87) and two other noted thinkers, the Hegelian Marxist philosopher and social theorist Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979) and the psychologist and social critic Erich Fromm (1900-80), both of the latter members of the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory. In their introduction, editors Kevin B. Anderson and Russell Rockwell focus on the theoretical and political dialogues in these letters, which cover topics such as dialectical social theory, Marxist economics, socialist humanism, the structure and contradictions of modern capitalism, the history of Marxism and of the Frankfurt School, feminism and revolution, developments in the USSR, Cuba, and China, and emergence of the New Left of the 1960s. The editors' extensive explanatory notes offer helpful background information, definitions of theoretical concepts, and source references. Among the thinkers discussed in the correspondence - some of them quite critically-- are Karl Marx, G. W. F. Hegel, Rosa Luxemburg, Georg Lukacs, Theodor Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, V. I. Lenin, Nikolai Bukharin, Sigmund Freud, Leon Trotsky, Mao Zedong, Daniel Bell, and Seymour Martin Lipset. As a whole, this volume shows the deeply Marxist and humanist concerns of these thinkers, each of whom had a lifelong concern with rethinking Marx and Hegel as the foundation for an analysis of capitalist modernity and its forces of opposition.

  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Having lost much of its political clout and theoretical power, communism no longer represents an appealing alternative to capitalism. In its original Marxist formulation, communism promised an ideal of development, but only through a logic of war, and while a number of reformist governments still promote this ideology, their legitimacy has steadily declined since the fall of the Berlin wall. Separating communism from its metaphysical foundations, which include an abiding faith in the immutable laws of history and an almost holy conception of the proletariat, Gianni Vattimo and Santiago Zabala recast Marx's theories at a time when capitalism's metaphysical moorings--in technology, empire, and industrialization--are buckling. While Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri call for a return of the revolutionary left, Vattimo and Zabala fear this would lead only to more violence and failed political policy. Instead, they adopt an antifoundationalist stance drawn from the hermeneutic thought of Martin Heidegger, Jacques Derrida, and Richard Rorty. Hermeneutic communism leaves aside the ideal of development and the general call for revolution; it relies on interpretation rather than truth and proves more flexible in different contexts. Hermeneutic communism motivates a resistance to capitalism's inequalities yet intervenes against violence and authoritarianism by emphasizing the interpretative nature of truth. Paralleling Vattimo and Zabala's well-known work on the weakening of religion, Hermeneutic Communism realizes the fully transformational, politically effective potential of Marxist thought.

  • Theory, theoretical practice, and theoretical formation : ideology and ideological struggle
  • On theoretical work : difficulties and resources
  • Philosophy and the spontaneous philosophy of the scientists (1967)
  • Lenin and philosophy
  • Is it simple to be a Marxist in philosophy?
  • The transformation of philosophy
  • Marxism today.
Collected here are Althusser's most significant philosophical writings from 1965 to 1978. Intended to contribute, in his own words, to a "left-wing critique of Stalinism that would help put some substance back into the revolutionary project here in the West, " they are the record of a shared history. At the same time they chart Althusser's critique of the theoretical system unveiled in his own major works, and his developing practice of philosophy as a "revolutionary weapon." Attesting to the unique place which Althusser has occupied in modern intellectual history - between a tradition of Marxism which he sought to reconstruct, and a "post-Marxism" which has eclipsed its predecessor - these texts are indispensable reading.

The neoliberal project in the West has created an increasingly polarized and impoverished world, to the point that the vast majority of its citizens require liberation from their present socio-economic circumstances. Marxist theorist Kenneth Surin contends that innovation and change at the level of the political must occur in order to achieve this liberation, and for this endeavour Marxist theory and philosophy are indispensable. "Freedom Not Yet" analyzes the nature of our current global economic system, particularly with regard to the plight of less-developed countries, and shows the possibilities of creating new political subjects necessary to establish and sustain a liberated world. Surin begins by examining the current regime of accumulation, or the global domination of financial markets over traditional industrial economies, which is used as an instrument for the subordination and dependency of poorer nations. He then moves to the constitution of subjectivity, or the way humans are produced as social beings, which he casts as the key arena in which struggles against dispossession occur. Surin critically engages with the major philosophical positions that have been suggested as models of liberation, including Derrida and Levinas' notion of reciprocity between a subject and its other; a reinvigorated militancy in political reorientation based on Badiou and Zizek; the nomad politics of Deleuze and Guttari; and the politics of the multitude suggested by Hardt and Negri. Finally, Surin specifies the material conditions needed for liberation from the economic, political, and social failures of our current system. "Freedom Not Yet" investigates the philosophical possibilities for a Marxist or neo-Marxist concept of liberation from capitalist exploitation and the regimes of power that support it, in order to seek a route to a better life for the world's poorer populations.

This collection brings together leading dialectical theorists from North America, Europe and Asia from a variety of disciplines. A number of contributors contrast dialectical approaches with opposing methdological frameworks, ranging from scientific reductionism to systems theory and postmodernism. Other stress the central importance of dialectical methodology in Marx's critique of political economy. Yet others employ dialectical approaches to comprehend essential features of our capitalist society, or to examine the prospects for a qualitatively superior way of life and the forms of social agency that would help to bring it about. The anthology reveals that dialectics cannot be reduced to a set of rules or principles, and that theorists operating within the dialectical tradition hardly agree on all issues. But this book also establishes that there is hardly an area of theoretical or practical importance today in which a dialectical approach - looking for interconnections where things appear separate, and for process and change where things appear stable - is not required.

In this succinct and panoramic work - both stimulating for the specialist and accessible to the general reader - one of the world's leading social theorists, Goran Therborn, tackles the question of the trajectory of Marxism in the twentieth century and its legacy for radical thought in the twenty-first. Addressing the history of critical theory from the contemporary vantage-point characterized by postmodernism, post-Marxism and critiques of Eurocentrism, Therborn probes how the recent theoretical currents - including those of Slavoj Zizek, Antonio Negri, and Alain Badiou - have coped with the changed intellectual as well as political and economic contexts. In the light of these discussions, Therborn then proceeds to a global investigation of the parameters of twenty-first century politics. This will become the essential appraisal of Marxism in the modern age.
