In this radical new book, Dr Diego Fusaro examines the current neo-liberal world through the lens of Marx. The present age has declared itself to be post-ideological, and yet it is the most ideological age of all. Only one ideology has survived, linked to capitalism, the very concrete abstraction which dominates as a real economic fanaticism.
"Diego Fusaro’s book invites us, in an original and striking fashion, to rethink and rediscover Marx following the fall of the Berlin Wall. The total domination of capitalism, the new world system, compels us to stop recounting edifying histories, even if it is the history of the ‘freedom of the moderns’."

"Marx, again! (with Steven Cenci’s nice translation) is an enjoyable read that is often marked by poetically infused philosophical language that gracefully propels the narrative forward. Despite its brevity as a mini-monograph, this book is a very erudite text – with a broad range of intertextual references – that draws upon the legacy of European philosophy (from Plato to Žižek) and a number of Italian thinkers (Roberto Fineschi, Giovanni Gentile, and Aldo Masullo)."
- Mirko Hall, Marx and Philosophy Review of Books
