This passionate collection of essays by Anselm Jappe, a critique of value theorist, is a significant contribution to the critical analysis of contemporary capitalism. Resolutely anti-capitalist, the author reminds us that by demanding submission of all aspects of life to market relationships, the system inexorably leads to the destruction of human communities and the environment. --Michael Löwy, Alternative Libertaire

Echoing many of the excellent developments in the works of Moishe Postone

Anselm Jappe's popularization of the Marxian "value-critique" tradition makes explicit the attempt to reconstitute Marx as a critic of political economy rather than a dogmatic proponent of proletarian labor. Echoing many of the excellent developments in the works of Moishe Postone, Robert Kurz, and other contributors to value-form theory, Jappe makes the case for a renewed reading of the "esoteric" Marx-i.e., a critic of the abstract determinations of the value-form. However, rather than developing detailed explanations of why this framework is important, Jappe largely turns to rather sectarian denunciations of other sections of the left. The result is a disappointing, and all-too-familiar attempt by a Marxist to condemn the left to insignificance.
