Marx's Grave

BEYOND EUROCENTRISM: A MARX FOR THE 21st CENTURY

Speaker: Kevin Anderson, author of the just-published Marx at the Margins: Nationalism, Ethnicity, and Non-Western Societies (University of Chicago Press, 2010)

While Karl Marx concentrated in his major writings on capital and class in Western Europe, he also wrote extensively on colonialism and non-Western societies, especially with regard to India, China, and Russia. Many of his writings also took up nationalism, race, and ethnicity, notably in Poland, the U.S., and Ireland. By carrying out a critical analysis of these neglected writings, this book offers us a Marx for the twenty-first century.

Kevin Anderson teaches sociology, political science, and feminist studies at UC-Santa Barbara. He is also the co-author of Foucault and the Iranian Revolution (2005) and the co-editor of The Rosa Luxemburg Reader.
