Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Beyond Marx: Theorising the Global Labour Relations of the Twenty-First Century contains the table of contents and notes on contributors. The book draws attention to five problem-areas that we feel stand in the way of our conceptualising the findings of global labour history in terms of a Marxist critique of political economy: the subaltern and subordinate position of the working class within the analysis of the capitalist dynamic; the tendency toward a 'scientific' objectification and determination of class-contradictions that gives priority to the capital-relation; the privileged and exclusive position of the 'doubly-free wage-worker' within the global class of workers; methodological nationalism; the almost consistently Eurocentric perspective.

Keywords: doubly-free wage-worker; global labour relations; Marxist critique; methodological nationalism; political economy; twenty-first century
