||About Monthly Review
There has never been a more important moment for MR's unique blend of scholarship and activism, critical understanding and accessibility. MR speaks to workers and labor organizers no less than to academics, and against class exploitation, no less than against racial and sexual oppression. It has never been more indispensable as a guide to current realities, their historical roots and the prospects for change. It is an essential voice for today.
