· Witty, erudite and prophetic. Globalisation, is not a new
phenomenon, but in the new millennium, the processes of globalisation
are intensifying, and being experienced in new ways.

· The immense scholarship and analytic powers of Marx mean that his
writings on international capitalism and its effects remain of
interest in current debates in globalisation.

· Dave Renton offers a new selection of Marx’s economic writings,
including those not widely available, with commentary, which will
enrich current discussions.

All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and
venerable prejudices and opinions, are swept away, all new-formed ones
become antiquated before they ossify. All that is solid melts into
air, all that is holy is profaned … the need of a constantly
expanding market for its products chases the bourgeoisie over the
whole surface of the globe. It must nestle everywhere, settle
everywhere, establish connections everywhere
 -The Communist Manifesto
