    This is why the Marxian analysis of globalization, to which the very dynamic of Capital outlined here entitles us, allows a welcome recoding of these multiple situations of misery and enforced idleness, of populations helplessly in prey to the incursions of warlords and charitable agencies alike, of naked life in all the metaphysical senses in which the sheer biological temporality of existences without activity and without production can be interpreted To think of all of this in terms of a kind [...]

    As an introduction to Volume One of Marx s Capital, this book does not quite meet the standard set by David Harvey s superb Companion to Marx s Capital On a purely practical level it suffers as a companion to reading the original work by not clearly referencing which sections Jameson is discussing throughout The focus is very much on the philosophical underpinning, and particularly the dialectics of Marx s work, and less on the purely economics This allows Jameson to bring out some interesting p [...]
