The left has always been characterized by the intensity of its theoretical debates.
While key debates change given political and historical circumstances, certain fundamental theoretical differences emerge again and again: the state debate; reform vs. revolution; the Marxist theory of history; race and class; populism; the debate on postcolonial theory. All these topics have a deep impact on how we conceive the future of left politics across the globe. Below are some key interventions from Verso's list into key debates in theory.
