Overview

Marx200 examines the significance of Marxism for today's world. Leading scholars and activists from different countries - including Cuba, India and the UK - show that Marx's ideas continue to provide us with the analysis we need to understand our world today in order to change it. The relevance of Marx's contribution to political economy is discussed, as is Marxism and the ongoing battle of ideas. John McDonnell MP, Shadow Chancellor, writes about Marxism as a force for change in the 21st century. The leader of the Indian Communist Party, Sitaram Yechury, focuses on Marx's legacy 200 years on. Other wide-ranging topics demonstrating the relevance of Marxist ideas and approaches in the current climate include: 'neoliberalism, austerity and Marx', 'capitalism and new technology', 'Marxism and the environment', 'Marxism & Women', 'Marxism and culture' as well as 'the role of the state', 'Marxism and the present as history' and 'Populist nationalism'. The book is based on a major international conference organised by the Marx Memorial Library to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx on 5 May 2018. Contents include: INTRODUCTION MARY DAVIS Marx200 - The Significance of Marxism in the 21st Century JOHN McDONNELL Marx as a Force for Change Today BEN FINE Marx and Value: The Enigma Code for Contemporary Capitalism DENISE CHRISTIE Public before Profit VIJAY PRASHAD Every Form of Working-Class Activity MARY DAVIS Women, Class and Gender: A Marxist-Feminist Perspective JOHN FOSTER History and Marx's Method ISABEL MONAL The Battle of Ideas and the Formation of Consciousness DAVID McLELLAN Marx's Materialist Conception of History: New Perspectives FRANCISCO DOMINGUEZ Marxism and the Peculiarities of Indo-American Socialism ALAN F BLACKWELL Artificial Intelligence and the Abstraction of Cognitive Labour URSULA HUWS The Onward March of Commodification CHRISTINE LINDEY Being a Marxist Artist Under Capitalism DAVID MARGOLIES Literature and political judgment TED BENTON The Ecological Marx?
