About the Author

Lucia Pradella is Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, University Ca' Foscari Venice, Italy and Research Associate, SOAS, University of London, UK.


Shortlisted for the Isaac and Tamara Deutscher Memorial Prize in 2015.

A fresh and rich reading of capitalist modernity's most important thinker. This book shows why those who dismiss Marx as 'just another Eurocentric thinker' are fundamentally mistaken.

William K. Carroll, Professor of Sociology, University of Victoria, Canada.

Contemporary globalization is an intensely contested process both intellectually and politically. In this important book Lucia Pradella traces the contradictory development of a non-Eurocentric understanding of the emerging capitalist world economy from the l6th century onwards. Her use of Marx's unpublished notebooks, currently appearing in the new Marx-Engels Completed Works (MEGA2), helps to make this a study of exceptional value that throws new light of the construction of Capital.

Alex Callinicos, King's College London, UK

This is a timely and original book. It draws on classical political economy using Marx's recently published manuscripts to shed new light on his evolving approach to globalisation and internationalisation of capital, historical and contemporary debates on globalisation, and Eurocentrism and the role of the state.

Dimitris Milonakis, University of Crete, Greece

The greatest contribution [Globalization and the Critique of Political Economy] makes is in its use of Marx's study notebooks. Although, as Pradella rightly says, these provide no ground for erecting a "new Marx," her research helps to establish a richer understanding of Marx.
