Magical Marxism : Subversive Politics and the Imagination Paperback / softback

Part of the Marxism and Culture series



*Shortlisted for the Bread and Roses Prize, 2012* Andy Merrifield breathes new life into the Marxist tradition.

Magical Marxism demands something more of orthodox Marxism - something more interesting and liberating.

It asks that we imagine a Marxism that moves beyond debates about class, the role of the state and the dictatorship of the proletariat.

In escaping the formalist straitjacket of typical Marxist critique, Merrifield argues for a reconsideration of Marxism and its potential, applying previously unexplored approaches to Marxist thinking that will reveal vital new modes of political activism and debate. This book will provoke and inspire in equal measure.

It gives us a Marxism for the 21st century, which offers dramatic new possibilities for political engagement.
