“The concern to interpret anew, but rigorously and relevantly, the politics of Marx became the hallmark of the politics of the Register:  theory, by all means, but theory that bore relevance to the editors' preoccupations with contemporary politics”. (Marion Kozak)

The 2014 issue of the Socialist Register on “Registering Class” is the 50th issue of the journal first initiated by Ralph Miliband, together with John Saville, back in 1964.   Against the backdrop of the vitriol spouted by the Daily Mail toward his legacy, the publication of the latest volume of the Register offers a welcome opportunity to demonstrate the continuing relevance of the political project Ralph was so integral to bringing to life.

The 50th volume of the Socialist Register is dedicated to the theme of 'registering class' in light of the spread and deepening of capitalist social relations around the globe.   Today's economic crisis has been deployed to extend the class struggle from above while many resistances have been explicitly cast in terms of class struggles from below. This volume addresses how capitalist classes are reorganizing as well as the structure and composition of working classes in the 21st century:
