Is the ‘death of politics’ an inevitable sign of the times, going hand in hand with climate change, technological development and postmodern malaise? Can Marxist analysis be brought out of the 19th-century textiles mill and into the call centres, office blocks and fast-food chains of modern Britain as a way to understanding increasing pay inequality and decreasing job security?
Eliane Glaser and Charles Umney debate these questions. Eliane Glaser is senior lecturer at Bath Spa University, an associate research fellow at Birkbeck, University of London, and a BBC radio producer. Charles Umney is a lecturer at the University of Leeds.
