Ana C. Dinerstein, Mike Neary
Ashgate, 2002 - Capitalism - 245 pages
Through a radical reinterpretation of Marx's social theory the contributors to this unique book revitalize the concept and reality of labour as the fundamental constitutive principle of the social world. This refocus is inspired by the real changes in the forms of identity, organization and struggle taking place in response to the global restructuring of capitalist work.
