By Fredric Jameson


NEW BOOK: Fredric Jameson’s first book-length engagement with Marx’s Capital



REPRESENTING CAPITAL is a unique work of scholarship that records the progression of Marx’s thought as if it were a musical score. The textual landscape that emerges is the setting for paradoxes and contradictions that struggle toward resolution, giving rise to new antinomies and a new forward movement. These immense segments overlap each other to combine and develop on new levels in the same way that capital itself does, stumbling against obstacles that it overcomes by progressive expansions, which are in themselves so many leaps into the unknown.


“This book is both an introduction to and an intervention in the history of Marxism … one is glad he has written it, because it remains the case that no one in the academy has quite the same energy as Fredric Jameson, and that no one writes books with sentences quite as forceful as these.” – MONTHLY REVIEW

“Fredric Jameson is possibly the Anglophone world’s preeminent Marxist theorist” – MARX & PHILOSOPHY
