The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl MarxeBook - 2011
Despite their best attempts to declare them dead at every opportunity, establishment critics have failed to relegate Karl Marx's ideas to the dustbin of history. Alex Callinicos argues that Marx's ideas have an enduring relevance and provides an engaging and accessible introduction to one of the West's most recognizable social critics.
Alex Callinicos is professor of European studies at Kings College London. He has written widely about Marxism and social theory. His most recent books areSocial Theory , Equality , Imperialism and Global Political Economy, andBonfire of Illusion , all published by Polity.
