This book sets out to challenge this by establishing the historical context that resulted in humanism’s eclipse, critiquing anti-humanism, and exploring alternative, neglected traditions and possible new directions.

Easter_Proclamation_of_1916Summary: Easter 1916 in Ireland was the first major anti-colonial uprising of the twentieth century, a harbinger of revolts across the colonial world.  At the time, Marxists like Trotsky and Radek dismissed it as bourgeois nationalist in character, but Lenin saw it as an example of a new force on the world scene that could be an ally of the working classes against monopoly capital: national liberation movements against imperialism.  Originally appeared in Truthout, March 27, 2016 — Editors

With a New Preface
344 pages | 6 x 9 | © 2010, 2016

In Marx at the Margins, Kevin Anderson uncovers a variety of extensive but neglected texts by Marx that cast what we thought we knew about his work in a startlingly different light. Analyzing a variety of Marx’s writings, including journalistic work written for the New York Tribune, Anderson presents us with a Marx quite at odds with conventional interpretations. Rather than providing us with an account of Marx as an exclusively class-based thinker, Anderson here offers a portrait of Marx for the twenty-first century: a global theorist whose social critique was sensitive to the varieties of human social and historical development, including not just class, but nationalism, race, and ethnicity, as well. Through highly informed readings of work ranging from Marx’s unpublished 1879–82 notebooks to his passionate writings about the antislavery cause in the United States, this volume delivers a groundbreaking and canon-changing vision of Karl Marx that is sure to provoke lively debate in Marxist scholarship and beyond. For this expanded edition, Anderson has written a new preface that discusses the additional 1879–82 notebook material, as well as the influence of the Russian-American philosopher Raya Dunayevskaya on his thinking.
