Marxist Class Theory for a Skeptical World (Studies in Critical Social Sciences #103) (Paperback)
In this important work of scholarship sure to reshape the landscape of critical social sciences, Raju Das offers a critique of many of the influential radical theories of class, making a spirited defense of class theory. Marxist Theory of Class for a Skeptical World critically discusses Analytical Marxist and Post-structuralist Marxist theories of class and persuasively argues for an alternative approach that is rooted in the ideas of Marx and Engels, as well as Lenin and Trotsky.
Das offers a materialist-dialectical foundation for class theory, conceptualizing class at both the transhistorical level and at the level of capitalism.
Raju J. Das, Ph.D., Ohio State University, is a Professor at York University. He has published the monograph A Contribution to the Critique of Contemporary Capitalism (Nova Publishers, 2014), and articles in many journals, including Capital and Class and Science and Society.
