Abstract

The Review of the Month in this issue ("Chávez and the Communal State" by John Bellamy Foster) focuses on the revolutionary political strategy introduced by Hugo Chávez and the Bolivarian movement in Venezuela. In the process it addresses how István Mészáros's Beyond Capital played a key, strategic role in the development of Chávez's thinking. Beyond Capital is a daunting philosophical work of around a thousand pages, while many of his other writings are nearly as challenging. MR readers will therefore be pleased to learn that we have just published a new book by Mészáros, The Necessity of Social Control…, expressly designed, as Foster writes in the book's "Foreword," as "an easily accessible work," providing "a way into his thinking for the uninitiated" (9).… Yet, Mészáros's new book is much more than that.
