  • Towards A Jurisprudence of State Communism

    Law and the Failure of Revolution, 1st Edition

    By Cosmin Cercel

    From Colonial Taiwan to Fukushima, 1st Edition

    By Dean Anthony Brink

  • A Conceptual Investigation of Justice

    1st Edition

    By Kyle Johannsen

    Conceptual analysis has fallen out of favor in political philosophy.

In this book, Kyle Johannsen calls for…

  • Money as a Social Institution

    The Institutional Development of Capitalism, 1st Edition

    By Ann E. Davis

    The Invisible and the Impossible, 1st Edition

    Marxism and the Critical Theory Tradition, 1st Edition

    By Vasilis Grollios

    The current political climate of uncompromising neoliberalism means that the need to study the logic of our culture—that is, the logic of the capitalist system—is compelling. Providing a rich philosophical analysis of democracy from a negative, non-identity, dialectical perspective, Vasilis…

  • Labour Managed Firms and Post-Capitalism

    1st Edition

    By Bruno Jossa

    Marx claims that unselfishness is a child of (workplace) culture, whereas the gene is selfish.

This book illustrates and discusses the major points…
