To mark the hundredth anniversary of the death o f Karl Marx, Australian Left Review invited several individuals to write about Marx and the impact o f his work on them as people and as political activists. ALR aimed for a wide cross section of viewpoints from the relatively inexperienced to seasoned campaigners, from confirmed enthusiasts to informed critics. In this edition ALR publishes articles by Bernie Taft, Toni Stephens, Jim Cairns, Simon Marginson, and Julius Roe. ALR hopes to continue the series in future issues with a view to developing further discussion around Marx and the relevance of his ideas to Australian society in 1983.
