an omnibus of mid-80s neomarxist thought by an A-list group of scholars and theorists. you're going to need an entire case of Aleve to get through Spivak, but much of the rest of the volume is surprisingly readable and has had serious traction on current literary and historical problems twenty-five years after its publication. see, for example, perry anderson's excellent work on reclaiming the volatile political moment of early modernism.

Shelves: philosophy
Marxism is too often seen solely as a philosophy of economic determinism. In this brilliant collection of essay by some of the foremost neo-marxist scholars of the time the marxist philosophy proves it has a very unique and fascinating view of culture and art. A must-read for all those concerned with the role of culture in society, the ties betwee politics and art and more such topics.

Oi! Don't anybody write easy English no more????!!!! Heavens to Betsy, one would think that in dealing with a complex matter the writers would attempt to simplify. Instead the fog index in this book reaches new levels of excellence. Yet I soldier on, ever hopeful of some enlightenment

Yet another reference. I haven't read enough in it to justify a 5-star rating.

The five stars goes for Gayatri Spivak's famous essay, "Can the subaltern speak?" I have to read it again, more thoroughly.
