Authentic Marxist thought led something of a fugitive existence in the west in the early twentieth century. It had to maintain its distance not only from liberalism and fascism, but from persecution by Stalin as well. In decline in the cold war, it saw a major revival in the sixties by the new left, and appears to be back again in the crisis atmosphere of the early twenty-first century. But do we need to rethink what we need from this tradition to confront the present global situation? Alongside the established 'canon' of western Marxism, this course will consider some neglected texts, as well as some contemporary inheritors of this tradition.
