20131213bSummary: Capitalism appears to many to be a failed system. We’re also told that the alternative posed by Karl Marx is similarly bankrupt. As against the experience of the Soviet Union and China, Peter Hudis argues that freedom — including from a repressive state apparatus — was central to Marx’s concept of life after capitalism.

nopeSummary: The freedom movements in the U.S., and indeed around the world, have been dealt a tremendous blow with the election of Donald Trump as President of the U.S. As we absorb the significance of this development and prepare to respond to it on the basis of firm Marxist-Humanist principles, there are several points that I think may be worthwhile to keep in mind — Editors

In contrast to the traditional view that Marx’s work is restricted to a critique of capitalism and does not contain a detailed or coherent conception of its alternative, this book shows, through an analysis of his published and unpublished writings, that Marx was committed to a specific concept of a post-capitalist society that informed his critique of value-production, alternated labour and capitalist accumulation. Instead of focusing on the present with only a passing reference to the future, Marx’s emphasis on capitalism’s tendency towards dissolution is rooted in a specific conception of what should replcae it. In critically re-examining that conception, this book addresses the quest for an alternative to capitalism that has taken on increased importance today.
