Marx, Engels, and Marxisms

Palgrave Macmillan

The Marx renaissance is underway on a global scale. Wherever the critique of capitalism re-emerges, there is an intellectual and political demand for new, critical engagements with Marxism.

Marx, Engels, and Marxisms is a peer-reviewed series that publishes monographs, edited volumes, critical editions, as well as translations of books already published in other languages. This series bring together reflections on Marx and Marxisms from perspectives that are varied in terms of political outlook, geographical areas, academic disciplines, and subject-matter, thus challenging many preconceptions as to what Marxist thought can be like, as opposed to what it has been. The series appeal internationally to intellectual communities that are increasingly interested in rediscovering the most powerful critical analysis of capitalism: Marxism. Authors and editors in this series are producing overall an eclectic and stimulating yet synoptic and informative vision that will draw a very wide and diverse audience. This collection of books will embrace a much wider range of scholarly interests and academic approaches than any previous ‘family’ of books in the area. 

The main areas of focus of this book series include: 1) the oeuvre of Marx and Engels, 2) Marxist authors and traditions of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, 3) labour and social movements, 4) Marxist analyses of contemporary issues, and 5) the reception of Marxism in the world. 

The series will include titles focusing on the oeuvre of Marx and Engels which utilize the scholarly achievements of the on-going Marx-Engels Gesamtausgabe, a project that has strongly revivified the research on these two authors in the past decade. Moreover, our volumes awake readers to the overarching issues and world-changing encounters that shelter within the broad categorisation “Marxist”. Particular attention will be given to authors such as Antonio Gramsci and Rosa Luxemburg, who are very popular and widely translated nowadays all over the world, but also to authors who are less known in the English-speaking countries, such as Jules Guesde, Raya Dunayevskaya and Bhimrao Ambedkar.

Another main aim of this series is to publish books focused on reception studies and Marxist national traditions. Political projects have necessarily required oversimplifications in the 20th century, and Marx and Engels have found themselves “made over” numerous times and in quite contradictory ways. Taking a national perspective on reception will be a global revelation and the volumes of this series will enable the worldwide Anglophone community to understand the variety of intellectual and political traditions through which Marx and Engels have been received in local contexts.
