Abstract

In this interview, Bob Jessop, not only talks about the theoretical and political factors that motivated him as an intellectual and made him focus particularly on the State, but also refers his new concerns related with the new social, economic and political transformations that are brought about by economic globalisation. Showing an outstanding relational capacity and in a quite coherent [and notably] way Jessop, digs over intricate dichotomies such as state vs. society, the economic vs. the political, agency vs. structure, and the logic of capital vs. class struggle. Expressing explicitly some of his major influences � Gramsci, Althusser Bourdieu, Polanyi, � Jessop, among many issues, explains, not only the tensions between the market and society, deals with the possibility of having a social market or a free market within a socialist system, challenges distinctions such as �First World- Third World�, identifies the complicities between Thatcherism, Majorism and Blairism, the transformations on the European Left and the need for a new posture, denounces that there is no single logic to globalisation [�it is the complex resultant of many different processes on many different scales�], but also deals with the concept of governance as an ensemble of spatio-temporal practices and forms, and understands socio political movements like the Zapatistas as important and original contributions to the overall development of the struggle against the dominant neo-liberal forms of globalisation.
