This issue explores issues that emerge at the intersection of Marxist scholarship and psychological practice. Given the ongoing global financial crisis, it seems like an appropriate time to reflect on the role that modern psychological research and practice play both in reproducing and in legitimizing one of the dominant features of modern society. We hope that the articles in this issue will persuade scholars, students, and activists that Marxism remains a potent tool for interrogating the economic and political foundations of modern psychology. It should be noted that the papers included in this issue were originally presented at the first Marxism and Psychology Conference held at the University of Prince Edward Island in August of 2010.
