Global Economic Crisis

REVIEW SYMPOSIUM ON ‘GLOBAL CAPITALISM IN CRISIS’

Dear reader

I am editor of the Politics and International Relations journal Global Discourse (www.global-discourse.com). For our third edition we are publishing a special edition on Marxian Thought and the Contemporary World.

We would like to have a book review symposium on Global Capitalism in Crisis: Karl Marx & The Decay of the Profit System by Murray E. G. Smith and we are seeking two reviewers. The book is outlined here: www.fernwoodpublishing.ca/Global-Capitalism-in-Crisis-Murray-EG-Smith

Our book review section is interactive and we invite a reply from the author. For an example of our format please look at the Andrew Linklater book symposium: http://global-discourse.com/contents/critical-theory-and-world-politics-by-andrew-linklater/

If you would like to review ‘Global Capitalism in Crisis’ please contact me (m.d.edward@ncl.ac.uk). I can post a copy out asap.

Best wishes
Mark Edward
