The fading from memory of the Soviet Union has allowed Marxism to be comprehended in increasing clarity these days, consigning to the dustbin of Cold War history many of the silly notions people held of it in those distorted times. Nor has interest in Marxism waned since those times either - if anything, especially since the Great Recession began in 2007, interest and concern with the themes and ideas of Marxism and especially Marxist economics has increased. It is time then for a review and updating of the great insights and theories of that tradition in light of recent history. This volume is a restatement of the main ideas of today's Marxist economics as they have developed up to the present moment. -- Eric A. Schutz, Professor Emeritus, Economics, Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida, USA As a scholar I found myself compelled by the deep, exhaustive treatments of Marxian concepts; the accounts are rich, well argued, and generally quite illuminating. As a teacher, I found some of the more introductory and definitional contributions of particular utility in teaching the foundations of Marxian theory...Generally speaking, however, the book is a useful contribution to the field of Marxian economics, many of its chapters warranting consistent re-reading. It is a book that I have already used in my work and one that I am likely to continue using for the foreseeable future. -- Benjamin J Anderson, is a PhD Candidate in the School of Communication at Simon Fraser University (SFU), Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
