Marx and Latin America by Jose M. Arico

José Aricó explores why Latin-American reality was apparently 'excluded' from Marx's thought. Identifying the contradictions in Marx's attitude to 'peripheral' countries, Aricó challenges charges of 'Eurocentrism', demonstrating how Marx's hostility to Simón Bolívar's 'Bonapartism' coloured his attitude towards the continent.
