In contrast to the traditional view that Marx's work is restricted to a critique of capitalism - and that he consciously avoided any detailed conception of its alternative - this work shows that Marx was committed to a specific concept of a post-capitalist society which informed the whole of his approach to political economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a timely and important book. Exploring the whole range of Marx's texts, Peter Hudis makes a powerful case for a coherent Marxian vision of a society beyond capitalism, alienated labour and the commodity form. Thanks to Hudis, readers interested in anti-capitalist alternatives and Marx's radical worldview finally have the work they've been looking for." -David McNally "A particular strength of Hudis's book is that it examines the full sweep of Marx's writings, rather than focus on one particular text or period of Marx's life. No stone is left unturned in attempting to uncover the implicit conception of an alternative. The scope of this allows him to include a number of texts which are often overlooked in this discussion, and offer a number of novel interpretations of works usually discussed in different contexts." -David Swain, Marx and Philosophy Review of Books "The main strength of [this] book is that in following Marx's writings from 1839 to 1881 Hudis has indeed found many implicit and explicit indications about a possible future non-alienating society. His interpretations are based on Marx's writings as a whole and allow the reader to hear Marx think over the course of forty years. At the same time, the author is well versed in political economy and the writings of the various schools of Marxism from Marx's time on, and reveals that he has thought through a variety of points of view and criticisms when presenting his arguments." -Radical Philosophy Review
