Since the onset of the Global Financial Crisis the ideas of Karl Marx have once again become prominent in social and political thought. This book turns to Marx’s theory of revolutionary subjectivity as a means of assessing the work of three contemporary global theorists: Ernesto Laclau, Antonio Negri, and Alain Badiou, considered here together for the first time.


’This book is a substantive and innovative attempt to bring together and analyse the transformation of Marxism into post-Marxism. Harrison's novel approach, comprehensive exposition and rich textual engagement enables those with only broad knowledge of the field to understand the particular challenges and developments of post-Marxism, both of which are often complicated beyond reason. It is well worth the read.’ Dr Matthew Johnson, Lancaster University, UK ’Harrison's book is a highly readable and significant work of political theory. It shows the continuing relevance of Marx via a study of revolutionary subjectivity and the post-Marxism of Laclau, Badiou and Negri. It is a lively and intelligent assessment of Marx and his contemporary legacy.’ Gary Browning, Oxford Brookes University, UK
