The Meaning of Marxism

The Meaning of Marxism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“In [D’Amato’s] able hands, Marxist politics come alive and leap before us, pointing a way toward a better world. It’s a knockout.”—Dave Zirin, author of What’s My Name, Fool?: Sports and Resistance in the United States

In this lively and accessible introduction to the ideas of Karl Marx, with historical and contemporary examples, D’Amato argues that Marx’s ideas of globalization, oppression, and social change are more important than ever.

Paul D’Amato is the associate editor of the International Socialist Review. His writing has appeared in CounterPunch, Socialist Worker, and SelvesandOthers.org. He is an activist based in Chicago.

Book News Annotation:

Declarations of the "End of History" and the triumph of capitalism that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union are premature, suggests D'Amato (managing editor, International Socialist Review), and many developments since demonstrate the enduring relevance of Marxism. In this volume, which began as a series of articles for a bi-weekly column in the Socialist Worker newspaper called "The Meaning of Marxism," he aims to provide a basic introduction to Marxist ideas, drawing on the works of Marx and Engels of course, as well as important followers such as Rosa Luxemburg, Vladimir Lenin, and Leon Trotsky. He addresses the Marxist theories of historical materialism, capitalist economics, and the revolutionary historical role of the working class together with Marxist views on reform and revolution, imperialism and war, oppression, and the environment.
