Ten years after the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the disappearance of
Marxism as a (supposed) state ideology, there is a need for a serious and
long-term book publishing programme. Subjected to the whims of fashion, most
contemporary publishers have abandoned any systematic production of Marxist
theoretical work. The HM book series addresses this great gap with original
monographs, translated texts and reprints of original classical works. At
least three titles will be published every year.

CHRISTOPHER J. ARTHUR
THE NEW DIALECTIC AND MARX'S CAPITAL

This book both argues for, and demonstrates, a new turn to dialectic. Marx's
Capital was clearly influenced by Hegel's dialectical figures: here, case by
case, the significance of these is clarified. More, it is argued that,
instead of the dialectic of the rise and fall of social systems, what is
needed is a method of articulating the dialectical relations characterising
a given social whole. Marx learnt from Hegel the necessity for a systematic
development, and integration, of categories; for example, the category of
'value' can be fully comprehended only in the context of the totality of
capitalist relations. These studies thus shed new light on Marx's great
work, while going beyond it in many respects.
