47768Last Friday, some five years worth of collective work came to fruition with the publication of the book Marxism and Social Movements in the Historical Materialism book series, which is brought out by Brill Academic Publishers. The book is an edited volume, brought together by Colin Barker, Laurence Cox, John Krinsky and myself through a sustained dialogue with a large group of wonderful contributors. Spanning struggles on six continents over 150 years, the book seeks to demonstrate the power of Marxist analysis in relation not only to class politics, labour movements and revolutions but also anti-colonial and anti-racist struggles, community activism and environmental justice, indigenous struggles and anti-austerity protest.

Courtesy of the good people at Brill, I’m pleased to be able to share a chapter from the book, co-authored by Laurence Cox and myself, entitled What Would a Marxist Theory of Social Movements Look Like?
