Marx’s thought is being reappropriated and reinterpreted by a new generation of activists in their own struggles. This entails a return to Marx, a return that is never simple or innocent, for it demands the abandonment of a “dogmatic” approach to the texts and the willingness to strive in the present for an understanding of Marx’s analyses of capitalism.

“[T}he collection of essays presented in this volume aims to demonstrate the richness, rigour and importance of Marx’s thought for developing alternative worldviews and politics in the present. We hope the reader will find these texts interesting and useful not only in her efforts to make sense of the world that surrounds us, but also in her fight against the many forms of injustice brought about by capitalism.”
