Ingo Elbe’s Marx im Westen is the authoritative theoretical history of West German Marxist Theory. Marx im Westen provides a brilliant and lucid history of the New German Reading of Marx covering the intricacies of new interpretations of Marx’s theory of Value, the State Derivation debate and Revolutionary Theory.

Elbe’s work is also essential for understanding the work of German theorists who have been translated in the Anglophone world such as Michael Heinrich and Heide Gerstenberger as well as the influence these debates had on the Anglophone work of the CSE, Open Marxism, Value-Form Theory and Political Marxism.

I am soliciting further volunteers to translate selections from Marx im Westen in order to make it available to the English reading public as part of the Historical Materialism Book Series.
