New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, post festum and status nascendi, go best together when learning is in question.
—Ernst Bloch (From the “Prefatory Note” to A Philosophy of the Future)
Two more books I hope to get to this year:
• Kevin Anderson, Marx at the Margins: On Nationalism, Ethnicity, and Non-Western Societies (University of Chicago Press)
New from the author of Lenin, Hegel and Western Marxism
• David Harvey, A Companion to Marx’s Capital (Verso)
Appears to be a complement to Harvey’s (also interesting) The Enigma of Capital. Anything effort to seriously introduce readers to the categories of Marx’s critique of political economy is to be welcomed.
