More than 130 years after Karl Marx’s death and 150 years after the publication of his opus magnum
Capital: Critique of Political Economy, capitalism keeps being haunted by period crises. The most recent capitalist crisis has brought back attention to Marx’s works.
This volume presents 18 contributions that show how Marx’s analyses of capitalism, the commodity, class, labour, work, exploitation, surplus-value, dialectics, crises, ideology, class struggles, and communism help us to understand media, cultural and communications in 21st century informational capitalism.
Marx is back! This book is a key resource on the foundations of Marxist Media, Cultural and Communication Studies.
