Rethinking Marx in the 21st Century
Another hot topic on our Spring 2011 list is the ongoing debate about the current state of economic affairs and the sustainability of capitalism. One of the most notable Marxist critics, Terry Eagleton, tackles the perception that Marxism is dead in his newest book, Why Marx Was Right.
Christopher Benson, who writes for The Weekly Standard, Christianity Today, Books & Culture, among others, has posted an excerpt to his “Bensonian” blog, where already discussions have started about who Marx was and what Marxism is and how we can grapple with its importance in the 21st century. Check out his blog, see where you stand, and dig into the intensified debate that is sure to come when the book is published in April.
