‘In this intellectual tour de force, Ronaldo Munck revisits the Marxist enterprise as a radical, open, and resilient tradition. This book is for social movements as well as the classroom and personal libraries.’
Bob Jessop, author of The State: Past, Present, Future
‘This is an extraordinarily important book. It brings Marx fully to life, addresses key debates within and around Marxism, and deploys powerful insights drawing upon Marx’s work to illuminate the new realities, current imperatives and longstanding inequities in twenty-first century capitalism. A revealing text, and an indispensable read.'
Alfredo Saad Filho, SOAS, University of London
'A new intellectual synthesis can be crafted by integrating Marxist theory with important insights from feminism, queer theory, ecological science, post-colonial literatures, Karl Polanyi and various contemporary left-wing thinkers ... Brilliant.'
Marx and Philosophy Review of Books
'Lucid and engaging … a timely review of Marxism in theory and practice from an eclectic perspective that leans heavily on Marx and the Marxists yet also draws on a broader body of literature. I highly recommend Marx 2020 as a must read for those who want to engage in this debate on the potential and the limits of Marxism for today’s world.'
Global Discourse, William Robinson, Uni. California, Santa Barbara
