Throughout his career Stuart Hall engaged with Marxism in varying ways, actively rethinking it to address the political and cultural exigencies of the moment. This collection of Hall’s key writings on Marxism surveys the questions central to his interpretations of and investments in Marxist theory and practice. It includes Hall’s readings of canonical texts by Marx and Engels, Gramsci, and Althusser; his exchanges with other prominent thinkers about Marxism; his use of Marxist frameworks to theorize specific cultural phenomena and discourses; and some of his later work in which he distanced himself from his earlier attachments to Marxism.

In addition, editor Gregor McLennan’s introduction and commentary offer in-depth context and fresh interpretations of Hall’s thought. Selected Writings on Marxism demonstrates that grasping Hall’s complex relationship to Marxism is central to understanding the corpus of his work.
