“Raju Das’ book is a joyful scream of defiance, but it is also a call to study. His searchlight is a Marxism that is critical of everything, including itself. Whether the focus is on the theory of the state, unfree labor, social class in rural India, pharmaceutical fraud in the USA, the nature of protest politics, or Marxist class theory itself, Das will make you want to join in his boundless sense of struggle and possibility. You will almost feel invited to think critically, even about his specific interventions, because only thus will you and he be truly part of the international movement to build the world-beyond-capitalism that we all so desperately need. Don’t just read this book; put it to good use!” – David Laibman, Editor, Science & Society, Professor (Emeritus), Economics, City University of New York
