              Classical Marxism in an Age of Capitalist Crisis: The Past is Prologue (Hardback)

              Capitalism has always lived in and with crisis. Wars, revolutions, economic depression and repeated recessions, the threat of nuclear annihilation and ecological disaster have all failed to break the dominance of this economic and political system. How then does capitalism surviv...e? This book explores the contradictions within capitalism as well as the reasons why Marxism hasn't been able to mount a sustained challenge. It analyses both capitalist and Marxist crisis and presents a perspective by which theory and practice might again be united in a period of increasing capitalist globalisation and crisis. The author, through a return to classical Marxism, reaffirms Marxism's relevance, not only in its explanatory form, but as a means of building independent political and organisational structures that will challenge the rule of capitalism. A tract for the times, this volume will be an engaging read for scholars and researchers of politics, especially political theory and political economy, economics, and sociology. The volume will also be of interest to lay readers.
