Details

The Value of Radical Theory achieves two main goals: It explains Marx’s economic theory, providing readers with a solid foundation in his critique of capitalism. Wayne Price’s political insights also offer a framework through which anarchists can understand and use Marx, while remaining anarchists.

The result is an insightful primer that sidesteps the typical anarchist vs. Marxist debates. Price presents Marx’s theory as an as-yet-unsurpassed explanation of contemporary capitalism, one that will aid in the task of overcoming the market and ushering in an era of collective, participatory control of the economy, inspired by anarchist political and ethical traditions.


Wayne Price is a long-time writer, theorist, and activist on the Left. He has been involved in a series of revolutionary libertarian-socialist organizations and has been active in dissident caucuses in teacher unions, human rights organizing, and the antiwar movement, from the Vietnam war to today. Price’s adherence to class-struggle anarchism has been complimented by a deep appreciation for Marx's critique of capitalism. He is the author of The Abolition of the State: Anarchist & Marxist Perspectives (2007) and Anarchism & Socialism: Reformism or Revolution? (2010).
