Book News Annotation:
Papers from the November 1992 International Conference on Marxism in the New World Order address cultural, artistic, emotional, ethical, and psychological dimensions of social life as well as economics and politics, and discuss issues such as gender, race, spirituality, and utopian images of socialism. Other topics include post-Marxism and class, socialisms and capitalisms, dimensions of class analysis, and the political struggle over the North American border.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Diverse Marxian intellectual cultures are having important effects on political struggles over the subjects of history and knowledge, international law, television, the state, democratic theories and institutions, bodies, sexuality, masculinity, environmentalism, postmodernism, labor, the meanings of the end of the USSR, children, archaeology, the meanings of Columbus, cartography, the North American economy, welfare, NAFTA, the Gulf War, higher education, and the many other topics discussed by the contributors to this important volume. These essays show readers how Marxism's continuing vitality derives from its profound allegiance to diverse struggles for social justice. At this moment we need progressive imaginaries alternative to the tired and ineffectual ones that have left us with enormous challenges and compelling questions on every aspect of contemporary social relations. Here, well-known thinkers are joined by important new voices in exploring fruitful directions for vision, analysis, and political action. This is without question the best collection of mediations so far on postorthodox Marxian tendencies in contemporary global cultures.
