A focus on internal relations without reference to dialectics. Hubris on the role of norm entrepreneurs without recourse to organic intellectuals. Theorising on the state without encountering capitalist state debate. This is how mainstream theorising in political science and International Relations (IR) and International Political Economy (IPE), especially, operates in silencing its more radical Marxist counterparts. This practice of silencing has a long history. My argument in a new article in International Affairs is that such silencing goes to the very origin story of the disciplines of IR and IPE, which my argument reveals in relation to the themes of class and race.
