Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Here is a book showing that Marxism is alive and creative, one of those not very frequent works laying the foundations on which we can build our strategies and tactics. And coming at the right time when we badly need to go back to essentials."--Daniel Singer, Monthly Review

"Meszaros knows his Hegel, Marx, Lenin and Lukacs inside and out; only on this basis is his penetrating criticism offered; and it is to be taken all the more seriously...There is a lot of food for thought here."--Chris Arthur, Critique

"..passionately inspired by sympathy for the downtrodden and their struggle for liberation..."--The Nation
