His characteristically bravura presentation provided a provocative re-reading of the classics in the Western tradition and posed a series of challenges to Marxism.In a timely intervention in one of today's most vital theoretical debates, the contributors to Ghostly Demarcations respond to the distinctive program projected by Specters of Marx. The volume features sympathetic meditations on the relationship between Marxism and deconstruction by Fredric Jameson, Werner Hamacher, Antonio Negri, Warren Montag, and Rastko Mocnik, brief polemical reviews by Terry Eagleton and Pierre Macherey, and sustained political critiques by Tom Lewis and Aijaz Ahmad.

    Read this from back to front starting with Derrida's own whiny criticism of his critics in the book. Most of the stinging comments are well deserved and Derrida's digressive and egoistic response only gives them more credibility. Particularly liked Aijaz Ahmad and Tom Lewis' response (in spite of the latter's Trotskyite approach) as well as Rastko Mocnik musings (which can very well exist sans the reference point to Derrida's celebrated essay) but not impressed at all with Werner Hamacher's attempt to out-Derrida Derrida. I'm rather irked with Terry Eagleton's rather pompous and dismissive tone. Overall an informative selection that gives one an idea of the political implications of Derrida's linguistic idealism: a form of "true socialist" utopianism that Marx took some length to critique in The German Ideology.
