“... anti-globalization activists would do well to check out Marx’s Revenge, which is an economic history aimed at the general reader.”—Irish Times
“A criticism from the Left was that it was over-optimistic to hope for ‘social capitalism.’ Well, perhaps. But capitalism is all we’ve got and Meghnad Desai’s book Marx’s Revenge, published by Verso, is brilliantly timed.”—William Keegan, The Observer
“Marx, if we did but know it, is the prophet and advocate of globalization.”—Will Hutton, Independent Magazine
“A stimulating, judicious and learned book, at times provocative and merry, but, above all, thoughtful on where the world has come from ... and the errors and breakthroughs of judgement which allow us to treat our economic world with enhanced self-consciousness.”—Development Policy Review
Meghnad Desai was Director at the Centre for Global Governance at the London School of Economics. His previous books include Marxian Economics, Applied Econometrics, and India’s Triple Bypass.
