Yeah, the book is out and available from Monthly Review in NY. This is the
ad for the book on the back cover of MR for what its worth:

"In Beyond Capital, the internationally esteemed Marxist philosopher
Istvan Meszaros provides a major contribution to the task of reassessing
the socialist alternative and the conditions for its realization in the
light of late 20th century developments and disappointments.

Steeped in the philosophical roots and revolutionary world outlook of
early Marxism, Beyond Capital brilliantly challenges the conventional
conceptual framework of socialist theory, worked out in relation to the
European experience, and begins the urgent task of elaborating a new
socialist theory of transition."
