The Value of Radical Theory: An Anarchist Introduction to Marx's Critique of Political Economy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Value of Radical Theory achieves two main goals. It explains Marx's economic theory, providing readers with a solid foundation in his critique of capitalism. Price's political insights also offer a framework through which anarchists can understand and use Marx, while remaining anarchists. The result is an insightful primer that sidesteps the typical anarchist vs. Marxist debates. Price presents Marx's theory as an as-yet-unsurpassed explanation of contemporary capitalism, one that will aid in the task of overcoming the market and ushering in an era of collective, participatory control of the economy, inspired by anarchist political and ethical traditions.

Synopsis:

Will be soliciting reviews from Monthly Review, Science and Society, Insurgent Notes, Socialism and Democracy, New Politics, and Advance the Struggle.

We will be posting excerpts to our social media, Anarkismo, Infoshop, and Anarchist News.

Wayne is very well known within the anarchist and left libertarian movement globally. Those familiar with his work will be sure to pick up this new title.

About the Author

Wayne Price is a long-time writer, theorist, and activist on the Left. He has been involved in a series of revolutionary libertarian-socialist organizations and has been active in dissident caucuses in teacher unions, human rights organizing, and the antiwar movement, from the Vietnam war to today. Price's adherence to class-struggle anarchism is been complimented by a deep appreciation for Marx's critique of capitalism. He is the author of The Abolition of the State: Anarchist and Marxist Perspectives (2007) and Anarchism and Socialism: Reformism or Revolution? (2010).
