Key Marxist Thought
Originally published in 1974, Kojin Karatani’s Marx: Towards the Centre of Possibility has been among his most enduring and pioneering works in critical theory. Written at a time when the political sequences of the New Left had collapsed into crisis and violence, with widespread political exhaustion for the competing sectarian visions of Marxism from 1968, Karatani’s Marx laid the groundwork for a new reading, unfamiliar to the existing Marxist discourse in Japan at the time.
You'll find everything from the first comprehensive collection of Marx's political writings, Adorno’s classic text on fascism, a new edition of David Harvey's Companion to Marx’s Capital, and Mario Tronti's first English translation of Workers and Capital.
