Posthumous Collections of Dunayevskaya’s Writings
The Marxist-Humanist Theory of State-Capitalism: Selected Writings by Raya Dunayevskaya. This collection contains excerpts from her seminal 1940s analyses of the Soviet Union through some 1986 political-economic analyses of world capitalism. But to see her systematic analysis of state-capitalism, the chapters in Marxism and Freedom are better. $20.00
Power of Negativity: Selected Writings on the Dialectic in Hegel and Marx by Raya Dunayevskaya. Edited by Peter Hudis and Kevin B. Anderson. This collection starts with her 1953 philosophic breakthrough on the contemporary meaning of Hegel’s Absolutes: two letters she termed “the birth of Marxist-Humanism” and returned to throughout her life in order to plumb dialectics in many fora (also available in a pamphlet). It includes her notes on some of Hegel’s major works; correspondence with Marcuse, Fromm, Denby and others; talks and essays on the dialectic at work in contemporary mass movements for freedom; and commentary on the dialectic in the works of Marx, Lenin, Frantz Fanon, Lukacs, Korsch, and others. $25.00
Please note: MHI does not entirely agree with the selections, editing, and introductions of these two collections.
