Harry Cleaver is Associate Professor Emeritus at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of Reading Capital Politically (AK Press; 2nd ed, 2000).
'The ideal introduction to Marx for a new generation of activists,
and a fresh reading for Marxist scholars. Like 'Reading Capital
Politically', it demonstrates that Marx's work speaks directly to
the struggles of our time' -- Silvia Federici
'Shows that Marxism can be joined with feminist and workerist thought to achieve a broader and more exacting understanding of how class struggle still shapes our world's history' -- George Caffentzis, founder of Midnight Notes Collective
'Stands out from [other interpretations of 'Capital'], foregrounding the resistance of waged and unwaged people alike. Brings Marx to life and shows the continuing relevance of his work' -- Brett Caraway, Professor of Media Economics and Law, University of Toronto
'This essential interpretation shows how all kinds of contemporary activists can apply Marx's analysis to pull us back from an otherwise catastrophic future. A highly charged tool for revolution' -- Anitra Nelson, author of 'Small is Necessary: Shared Living on a Shared Planet' (Pluto, 2018)
'There are many books about Marx and Capital, but Harry Cleaver's achieves a unique synthesis of energy and organisation. This is a singular work by a great Marxist scholar.' -- Nick Dyer-Witheford, author of 'Cyber-Proletariat: Global Labour in the Digital Vortex'
'Masterfully illuminates the particulars of Marx's great work. He brings alive to readers what might otherwise appear as dry, abstract concepts, and shows how people's lives are in thrall to these ideas.' -- David Sherman, author of 'Sartre and Adorno: The Dialectics of Subjectivity'
