Reading 'Capital' Today addresses not only capital and labour, and early experiments in socialism, but also questions of gender, ecology, and imperialism. What we learn is that reading Marx's Capital in the present as history can renew our vision of a more egalitarian world beyond capitalism: that of socialism in the twenty-first century.' -- John Bellamy Foster, editor of Monthly Review 2017 is a good year for 'rethinking revolution' and the meaning of capitalism. This book celebrates and interrogates Marx's Capital on its 150th anniversary for its meaning today, as the neoliberal counterrevolution mutates into ever more grotesque political and economic forms. For reading Marx in our time, Schmidt and Fanelli have gathered a series of vital interventions on some of the most important theoretical and political themes in Marx for the struggles that lie in front of us. -- Greg Albo, Political Science, York University
