Jacobin magazine has just started their inaugural Book Club seminar on Panitch and Gindin’s The Making of Global Capitalism. Up today is my contribution, ‘Within or Against the State‘, which is chiefly in response to how the authors conceive of the state in relation to class struggle.
Also available to be read, with more to follow, are:
Mike Beggs — Introduction
Nicole Aschoff — The Luchadores of Global Political Economy
Henry Farrell — Half Poulantzas, Half Kindleberger
The series will conclude with a piece by Panitch and Gindin, who respond to the contributions.
