Marxism and Intersectionality

Race, Gender, Class and Sexuality under Contemporary Capitalism

What does the development of a truly robust contemporary theory of domination require? Ashley J. Bohrer argues that it is only by considering all of the dimensions of race, gender, sexuality, and class within the structures of capitalism and imperialism that we can understand power relations as we find them nowadays. Bohrer explains how many of the purported incompatibilities between Marxism and intersectionality arise more from miscommunication rather than a fundamental conceptual antagonism. As the first monograph entirely devoted to this issue, »Marxism and Intersectionality« serves as a tool to activists and academics working against multiple systems of domination, exploitation, and oppression.

»This is a necessary and crucial intellectual and political intervention that will change the terms of Left conversation.« (Jennifer Christine Nash, Associate Professor, African American Studies and Gender & Sexuality Studies)

»Whatever side you are on in this debate, this is a book very much worth reading.« (Charles Mills, John Evans Professor of Moral and Intellectual Philosophy, CUNY)

»Arguing that Marxism and intersectionality must be thought together, Bohrer’s book carefully demonstrates that any plan aimed at real and holistic social transformation must hold both traditions in critical awareness.« (Roderick A. Ferguson, author of Aberrations in Black: Toward a Queer of Color Critique)

»Putting to rest caricatures of 'identity politics' and reductionist views of power, Bohrer demonstrates how thoroughly race, gender, and sexuality permeate capitalist exploitation and oppression.« (Iyko Day, author of Alien Capital: Asian Racialization and the Logic of Settler Colonial Capitalism)

»Ashley J. Bohrer zeigt eindrucksvoll, wie solidarische Kritik gerade nicht zur immer weiteren Spaltung der Linken, sondern im Gegenteil zu besserem gegenseitigen Verständnis und Koalitionen im Kampf gegen Dominanzverhältnisse führen kann.«
