Marxism and The Postcolonial World

What is it that Marx can still offer us? Why hark back to him and his legacy? Why not abandon him altogether and construct our very own theories? Such queries can be answered by asserting simply, that the major resources that can provide even the starting points of a new emancipatory theory lie within the tradition of Marx. More importantly, just as the 'original Marx' is lost to us, so is the 'pre-marx' era of human thought. This essay attempts to open up the space for a reconstruction of a new emancipatory vision for the 'third world', which cannot but draw heavily on marxism, even if it is marxism reincarnated.
