In Ensayos. Reflexiones emancipatorias (Essays. Emancipatory reflections) we have compiled the reflections of José Carlos Mariátegui on the social classes of Latin America at the dawn of the 20th century. Mariátegui seems possessed by the idea that a great change is coming. It is difficult to imagine how the current socialist utopia would achieve a radical transmutation of established values. It remains, however, the intellectual acuteness of these texts that pretend to dissect with premonitory will the factors of social injustice.
