Late Marxist Perspectives
Marx is out of fashion in intellectual circles on the whole but he is increasingly seen as an astute and relevant guide to the spread of a new raw capitalism world wide. This book is not an exercise in a scholastic Marxology, but a timely and lively reappraisal of Marx and the socialist experience in the light of subsequent political and intellectual developments.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'An excellent account of the various issues confronting Marxist theory at the end of the twentieth century.'
Ernest Laclau, University of Essex
'Can Marx ever be disinterred from the wreck of official communism? Munck.... looks forward to a "postmodern marxism" integrating cultural, feminist and ecological perspectives into an imaginative new synthesis. In doing so he provides a credible attempt to construct a socialist politics for the coming century.'
Robin Cohen, University of Warwick
'Munck does not shrink from heavy criticism of marxism's economism, reductionism, androcentrism and eurocentrism. But his intention is by no means to disposae of Marx and marxism; rather he aims to elaborate a notion of "Marx live".'
David Walker, editor, Studies in Marxism
