Marxist Phoenix: Studies in Historical Materialism and Marxist Socialism

By Murray Smith

You are invited to the launch of the new book, Marxist Phoenix: Studies in Historical Materialism and Marxist Socialism (Toronto: Canadian Scholars Press). The volume gathers together previously published as well as new essays and articles, and represents over twenty years of effort to defend the legacy and continuing relevance of revolutionary Marxism during what has been a very dark period in modern history. Additional information about the book can be found at:

See: www.cspi.org/books/marxist-phoenix .

The publisher has scheduled a formal launch for the book for Wednesday, May 28th from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario. The event is occurring in conjunction with the 2014 Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences, Canada’s major annual academic gathering. The venue will be the Congress Centre – Expo Event Space at Brock. The launch is open to the general public.

Shortly after the conclusion of the launch, there will be a Roundtable on the book, organized as a session of the Society for Socialist Studies. Congress/SSS participants are invited to join Jonah Butovsky, Josh Dumont, Thom Workman and myself for a discussion of some of the book’s major themes. (As co-authors of certain chapters, Jonah and Josh are recognized as contributors to Marxist Phoenix.)

The Roundtable will run from 1:15 to 2:45 pm in Schmon Tower-105.
