This book offers a unique re-conceptualization of Marxism in bringing together leading scholars across disciplines - history, philosophy, economics, politics, sociology, and literary and culture studies - into one comprehensive corpus. It demonstrates the engaging relevance of the perspectives and techniques of the analyses adopted by Karl Marx, Frederich Engels and contemporary Marxists, and will be immensely useful to scholars and researchers across social sciences as well as general readers interested in Marxism.

`The editors deliver what they promise: a book on Marxism that is both beyond and with Marx . . . It is particularly valuable for readers in the pan-European world because almost all the authors are from South Asia and see the world with different glasses. The book is both refreshing and illuminating.' - Immanuel Wallerstein, Yale University
`A superb presentation of the thinking of the radical Indian left. It rigorously analyzes the social reality of India today, with and beyond Marx, and describes the reactions, when faced by this challenge, of the Indian communist left, both within the Communist Party of India (CPI-M) and in the Maoist organizations.' - Samir Amin, Third World Forum
`Marx once declared his favourite saying to be: `Nothing human is alien to me'. It is in this spirit that the exceptional scholars gathered here, most of them from South Asia, demonstrate the continuing vitality of critical Marxist scholarship. Tackling a stunning range of questions from aesthetics to the theory of imperialism, these essays offer powerful new insights into issues of politics, history, economics, culture and ideology. It is diffi cult to imagine any reader who will not be stimulated, provoked and even inspired by what awaits them in Marxism: With and Beyond Marx.' - David McNally, York University
