Historical Materialism: research in critical marxist theory

Issue 5 of Historical Materialism is now available. It contains major
new contributions to the debate over Robert Brenner^“s analysis of
the international economy from Werner Bonefeld, Alan Freeman,
Michel Husson, Anwar Shaikh, Tony Smith, Richard Walker and
John Weeks. Taken together with the papers in Historical
Materialism 4, this unique symposium presents an essential guide
to the current state of Marxist political economy, as writers from a
full cross-section of intellectual and political currents interrogate
the global trajectories of contemporary capitalism.

Also in Historical Materialism 5 you will find important new work by
Craig Brandist on Bakhtin and socialist ethics and Geoffrey Kay on
abstract labour and capital. Sean Sayers writes on late
developments in Marx^“s thought, Jon Gubbay assesses Erik Olin
Wright^“s researches into class, Gregor Gall analyses the
contemporary predicament of organised labour and Alan Johnson
explores the Third Camp socialist tradition. Also discussed are E.
San Juan^“s new critique of postcolonial theory and Andrew Collier^“s
critical realist moral theory.

Historical Materialism 5 costs £8 or US$12.50 plus postage. For
just a little more you can take a two-issue subscription and also
receive Historical Materialism 4, which includes contributions to the
Brenner debate by Alex Callinicos, Guglielmo Carchedi, Simon
Clarke, Gťrard Dumťnil & Dominique Lťvy, Chris Harman, David
Laibman, Michael Lebowitz, Fred Moseley, Murray Smith and Ellen
Meiksins Wood, as well as a hitherto unpublished article by Hal
Draper, a response to John Rosenthal^“s critique of dialectic by
Tony Smith, and reviews discussing British Communism, American
pragmatism, and Australian trade unionism.

Or you could take a subscription from Issue 5 onwards. Lined up
for our next couple of issues we have pieces by Patrick Murray on
practical abstraction, Andrew Kliman on value theory, Wal
Suchting on late Althusser, Michael Cowen on development theory,
Tony Burns on Greek philosophy, and an interview with Slavoj
