New Perspectives on Anarchism, Labour and Syndicalism: The Individual, the National and the Transnational - ed. David Berry and Constance Bantman
This collection presents new research on the history of anarchist movements and their relation to organised labour, notably revolutionary syndicalism. Bringing together specialists in their field, it ranges across Europe and from the late nineteenth century to the beginnings of the Cold War. National histories are revisited through transnational perspectives—on Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Poland or Europe as a whole—evidencing a great wealth of cross-border interactions and reciprocal influences between regions and countries.
In contrast to the traditional view that Marx's work is restricted to a critique of capitalism and does not contain a detailed or coherent conception of its alternative, this book shows, through an analysis of his published and unpublished writings, that Marx was committed to a specific concept of a post-capitalist society that informed his critique of value production, alienated labor and capitalist accumulation.
