    This chapter argues that a contemporary Marxist engagement with development and imperialism must engage with the inextricable relationship between race and capital. Further, it must consider the materiality of race – which is always already gendered - in a global context. The starting point for this must be an engagement with Marxism as a theory and practice which has primarily been developed outside Europe and North America and is deeply rooted in the conditions and contradictions of lived experiences in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. The chapter explores the potential implications of this approach for decolonial thinking, and for debates around primitive accumulation, unfree labour, forms of struggle beyond capital-labour relations, imperialism and neoliberalism.
