Socialist Register 2014: Registering Class.
The Socialist Register was founded by Ralph Miliband and John Saville in 1964 as ‘an annual survey of movements and ideas’ from the standpoint of the independent new left. It is currently edited by Leo Panitch and Greg Albo, assisted by an editorial collective of eminent scholars in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Each volume is focused on a topical theme and characterized by the inclusion of relatively long, sustained analyses which cut across intellectual disciplines and geographical boundaries.
The Socialist Register is published annually in October. The complete digital archive of 50 volumes published in English, as well as 3 volumes translated into Spanish, is available here. To order or subscribe now click here.
The 50th volume of the Socialist Register is dedicated to the theme of ‘registering class’ in light of the spread and deepening of capitalist social relations around the globe. Today’s economic crisis has been deployed to extend the class struggle from above while many resistances have been explicitly cast in terms of class struggles from below. This volume addresses how capitalist classes are reorganizing as well as the structure and composition of working classes in the 21st century:
• The Walmart working class and the precarious proletariat;
• Class and labour in digital capitalism;
• The new configuration of the capitalist classes;
• Dissecting capital’s national and transnational dimensions;
• Brazil’s new capitalism: state sponsorship and popular protest;
• Unions, cities and left strategies;
• Class analysis from the Communist Manifesto to Post-colonialism;
• The legacy of The Socialist Register.
