These include discussions of the definition of political art; the troubled status of “outsider” in the industry; and the question of how to maintain faith in art itself.

Marx's Capital
An Illustrated Introduction David Smith, illustrated by Phil Evans “[Marx’s Capital: An Illustrated Introduction is] valuable and in some respects more so than all the interpretations and popularizations I have read.” —C.L.R.

Karl Marx did not write Capital for the bookshelves of economists and philosophers. Capital is economics for working people, from their viewpoint and history. David Smith and Phil Evans explode the myth of difficulty haunting Capital. David Smith is a sociologist whose publications include books on Orwell and the changing structure of the working class. Phil Evans is a longtime political cartoonist based in England. He has illustrated Understanding Economics, among many other books.

Prelude to Revolution
France in May 1968 Daniel Singer “Daniel Singer is the left’s most brilliant arsonist. He sets ablaze whole forests of desiccated cliches about the ‘end of history’ and the ‘triumph of the market’ in order to light the way forward for the next generation of radical thinkers and activists.”—Mike Davis Prelude to Revolution is an indispensable study of May 1968. Singer presents a gripping narrative of the movement’s development and a careful analysis of its political content, and concludes by considering what lessons those interested in radical change should draw. Daniel Singer was a socialist writer and journalist best known for his articles for the Nation and the Economist, serving for decades as a European correspondent for each magazine.

Historical Materialism Book Series
Editorial Board: Sébastien Budgen (Paris), Steve Edwards (London), Marcel van der Linden (Amsterdam), Peter Thomas (London) The capitalist crisis of the twenty-first century has been met by a resurgence of interest in critical Marxist theory. At the same time, the publishing institutions committed to Marxism have contracted markedly since the high point of the 1970s. The Historical Materialism book series is dedicated to addressing this situation by making available important works of Marxist theory. The aim of the series is to publish important theoretical contributions as the basis for vigorous intellectual debate and exchange on the left. The peer-reviewed series publishes original monographs, translated texts, and reprints of “classics” across the bounds of academic disciplinary agendas, and across the divisions of the left. The series is particularly concerned with encouraging the internationalization of Marxist debate, and aims to translate significant studies from beyond the English-speaking world. The Historical Materialism book series will expand significantly over the coming years with substantial and important books in all areas of Marxist theory. We are undertaking a project of publishing previously untranslated texts by Marx, long-unavailable debates from the Second and Third Internationals, and English editions of important studies from the postwar period. Equally significantly, we also aim to publish the work of the emerging generation of Marxist scholars and theorists.

Marx’s Concept of the Alternative to Capitalism
Peter Hudis
“A particular strength of Hudis’s book is that it examines the full sweep of Marx’s writings, rather than focusing on one particular text or period of Marx’s life. No stone is left unturned in attempting to uncover the implicit conception of an alternative [vision to capitalism]. The scope of this allows him to include a number of texts which are often overlooked in this discussion and offer a number of novel interpretations of works usually discussed in different contexts.” —Dan Swain, Marx & Philosophy Review of Books In contrast to the traditional view that Marx’s work is restricted to a critique of capitalism—and that he consciously avoided any detailed conception of its alternative—this work shows that Marx was committed to a specific concept of a postcapitalist society which informed the whole of his approach to political economy. Instead of focusing on the present with only a passing reference to the future, Marx’s emphasis on capitalism’s tendency toward dissolution is rooted in a specific conception of what should replace it. Peter Hudis, Ph.D., is Professor of Humanities and Philosophy at Oakton Community College. He has published extensively on Marxist theory and is General Editor of The Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg.

Gramsci’s Political Thought
Carlos Nelson Coutinho
“[This publication] provides a wonderful opportunity to draw some attention to the debates on Gramsci in Latin America . . . and is an essential window through which to view debates in and beyond Brazil.” —Adam David Morton, For the Desk Drawer “One of [its] strengths is its decisive and clear account of Gramsci’s own interpretation of Leninism as a living and vibrant practice, making no allowances for theoretical laziness and dogmatism. Coutinho endeavors to present Gramsci . . . as an ever-vigilant challenger to dogmatic approaches to Marxism.” —Chris Walsh, International Socialist Group Gramsci’s Political Thought offers an analysis of the evolution of the political thought of Antonio Gramsci. Focusing on central concepts of the Prison Notebooks and relating them to the history of modern political ideas, the book demonstrates that Gramsci’s ideas continue to be relevant resources for understanding the controversies of our present time. Written by a leading Brazilian Marxist theorist, this book provides one of the most succinct and theoretically focused introductions to the thought of Antonio Gramsci available internationally. Carlos Nelson Coutinho is the author of several books on political theory and editor of the Brazilian version of The Complete Works of Antonio Gramsci.

Marxism and the Oppression of Women
Toward a Unitary Theory Lise Vogel, introduction by Susan Ferguson and David McNally
“Vogel’s book clarifies both the debate [between feminist and socialist theories] and the issues, and is a welcome contribution to the field. . . . I would recommend this book to anyone concerned with the theories of socialism or feminism. Whether one agrees with Vogel or not, one cannot help learning from her analysis.” —Carol Brown, Qualitative Sociology “This book is a significant contribution to a heated debate . . . over the ‘unhappy marriage’ of Marxism and feminism.” —Hester Eisenstein, Science & Society Nearly thirty years after its initial publication, Marxism and the Oppression of Women remains an essential contribution to the development of an integrative theory of gender oppression under capitalism. Lise Vogel revisits classical Marxian texts, tracking analyses of the “woman question” in socialist theory and drawing on central theoretical categories of Marx’s Capital to open up an original theorization of gender and the social production and reproduction of material life. Includes Vogel’s article “Domestic Labor Revisited,” which extends and clarifies her main theoretical innovations. Lise Vogel, a veteran of the US civil rights and women’s liberation movements, is Professor (retired) of Sociology at Rider University and the author of numerous books and articles. Before becoming a sociologist, she had an earlier career in art history. 5

Studies in Critical Social Sciences
Editor: David Fasenfest Modern capitalism began the twenty-first century seemingly victorious as the dominant social and economic organizing principle in the world. Rampant re- and de-regulation accompanied a wholesale attack on the social, economic, and political gains of the prior century under the guise of increasing competitiveness and the need to respond to the forces of globalization. The end of the Cold War, the decline of the former Soviet Union, and the increasing foothold of capitalism in China all point to an unchallenged reorientation of the global political economy to reflect this ascendence of capitalist social relations. The peer-reviewed Studies in Critical Social Sciences book series, through the publication of original manuscripts and edited volumes, offers insights into the current reality by exploring the content and consequence of power relationships under capitalism, by considering the spaces of opposition and resistance to these changes and by articulating capitalism with other systems of power and domination— for example race, gender, culture—that have been defining our new age. Studies in Critical Social Science includes the subseries Studies in Critical Research on Religion and Critical Global Studies.

Faces of State Terrorism
Laura Westra
Terrorism, a widespread global phenomenon, manifests itself in the actions and the policies of individuals and groups, but also and primarily in the actions and policies of states. Delving into the seldom-discussed question of the motivation for most episodes of terrorism, this book studies terrorism’s effects based on the economic and geopolitical imbalances that frame today’s global governance. Many states hide their terrorist activities under the “faces” they show the world, masks intended to hide real aims of acquiring or expanding power and wealth. These activities, presented as “self-defense,” “preventive action,” “counter-measures” or even as promoting “progress and development,” are forms of state terrorism that are much more widespread, powerful, and destructive than the actions originating from groups labeled terrorist since 9/11. This book examines the numerous illegal measures states use, from unlawful imprisonment and curtailing of civil liberties to torture, in the name of responding to terrorism. Laura Westra, Ph.D. (1982) in Philosophy, University of Toronto, and Ph.D. (2005) in Law, Osgoode Hall Law School, currently teaches environmental law at the University of Windsor, international law at the University of Milano (Bicocca), and a graduate course on Environmental Studies for Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. She has published twenty-seven monographs and collections on environmental justice, human rights issues, and international law, and more than eighty-five articles and chapters.

A Critical Approach Andy Blunden
Andy Blunden presents an interdisciplinary review of theories of concepts of interest to cognitive psychology, analytic philosophy, linguistics, and the history of science. Problems within these disciplines establishing reductive theories of the conceptual have led some to abandon concepts altogether in favor of interactionist or narrowly pragmatic approaches. Blunden responds with an account of the development of the theory of concepts from Descartes through Hegel—with special focus on the latter’s critical appropriation by early critical social science—culminating in the cultural psychology of Lev Vygotsky. He then proposes an approach to concepts which draws on activity theory, according to which concepts are equally subjective and objective: both units of consciousness and of the cultural formation of which one’s consciousness is part. This continues the author’s earlier work in An Interdisciplinary Theory of Activity (Haymarket, 2011). Andy Blunden is an independent scholar in Melbourne, Australia. He works with the Independent Social Research Network and the Melbourne School of Continental Philosophy. His Interdisciplinary Theory of Activity was published by Haymarket in 2011.
