With moderator Marcello Musto, and the following presenters on the sections that they produced for this anthology. Presenters are Bob Jessop on State, Michael Krätke on Capitalism, Heather Brown on Gender Equality, Michael Löwy, on Revolution, Peter Hudis on Political Organization—among the many contributions by those presenting today and other noted international scholars—presents a Marx in many ways different from the one familiar from the dominant currents of twentieth-century socialism. Its dual aim is to reopen for discussion, in a critical and innovative manner, the classical themes of Marx’s thought, and to develop a deeper analysis of certain questions to which relatively little attention has been paid until now. It is hoped that the volume will therefore help to bring Marx closer both to those who think everything has already been written about his work and to a new generation of readers who have not yet been seriously confronted with his writings. — Marcello Musto, Preface to The Marx Revival
