More than 130 years after Marx’s death, capitalism continues to be haunted by crises, each bringing renewed attention to his works.

This volume presents 18 contributions that show how Marx’s analyses of capitalism, the commodity, class, labour, exploitation, surplus-value, dialectics, crises, ideology, class struggles, and communism help us to understand media, cultural and communications in 21st century informational-capitalism.
