Abstract

This paper reviews Roberts' book Marx's Inferno. I take issue with three main themes of the book. The first theme deals with the ‘impersonal’ nature of domination embodied in the capital relation, the second with the putative connection between domination and republicanism, and the third with the political ramifications of this connection.

Keywords: historical materialism, Marxism, political economy

JEL Classification: P16, B14, B51
