The sixth article for a forthcoming Special Issue on Marxism in Asia, guest edited by Richard Westra has been published.
As the Introduction for the Special Issue, “East Asia in the Global Economy: Theoretical and Empirical Questions for Marxism” (DOI: 10.1080/00472336.2019.1662473) is authored by JCA co-editor Richard Westra of the Institute of Political Science, University of Opole, Poland.
The abstract for the article states:
As Marxism and socialism pass through watershed years it is important to reflect on the abiding questions of Marxist theory and empirical analysis. This article takes up this task in the context of East Asia under the impetus of globalisation and neo-liberalism, introducing a collection of five articles collected in the special issue. The article shows that questions Marx posed about the global economy more than a century ago remain prescient and continue to animate cutting-edge research, as shown in the articles in this special issue.
