This time-lapse video has never been more relevant. As the eyes of the world are fixed on events in Ukraine and Crimea, its good to have a little perspective on the ever-changing flux of borders throughout time. Very cool!

Robert Moosbrugger - The value of Marx for development studies

To conclude we can therefore say that the value of Marxist theory for contemporary development studies should not be sought after in specific Marxist statements or predictions. These statements and predictions, for example about the progressiveness of capitalism, were necessarily bound up with the specific historical context in which Marx was writing. As Lukács (1923) pointed out, “it is not the ‘belief’ in this or that thesis, nor the exegesis of a ‘sacred’ book”, but rather an emphasis on the Marxist method that defines the value of Marx. It is therefore the Marxist method and specifically his focus on class struggle as the key site for the movement of socio-economic evolution that assures the continuing importance of Marx for development studies.
