Beyond Marx and Other Entries is a truly original book by David Gleicher, author of
The Rescue of the Third Class on the Titanic: A Revisionist History (Liverpool University Press, 2006). It explores deep areas of semiotics, joined with economics, anthropology, sociology, history and philosophy and political science, even Franz Kafka's literary works. These are communicated by entries, based primarily on Gleicher’s actual blog
Looking through the crack from 2013 to 2017. No other book quite compares to it, but one might equate it to impressionist art, or the 'the one and the many'. Each entry is independent; nothing in one makes even an allusion to another. Readers, however, cannot help but to make connections themselves and develop their own understandings of dystopian possibilities.
David Gleicher, Ph.D. (1984), Columbia University, is Professor in Economics at Adelphi University. He has published 3 monographs, and many articles in history of economic thought, value theory, and social semiotics, as well as many reviews.
