This article discusses how Marxism produces some of the most trenchant challenges to mainstream international relations theory and general social science. Marx and Engels left a problematic legacy for theorizing international relations because of their neglect of inter-spatial relations and alterations in political geographies for processes of social reproduction. This ‘geopolitical deficiency’ still haunts the collective Marxist imagination. If significant progress has been made to rectify this defect, the tradition still stands in need of devising a theoretical framework wide and open-ended enough to conceptualize the nexus between social reproduction, power, and inter-spatial relations across the entire spectrum of human history.

Keywords: Marxist thought; international relations theory; social reproduction; power; inter-spatial relations; Karl Marx; Friedrich Engels
