What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

[A] lucid survey of the two-way traffic of ideas between Marxism and alternative theories [and] an accessible, critical introduction to each of the themes...consistently high quality of writing and argumentation...[A] touchstone in the debate over the continuing relevance of this tradition in social science after the collapse of historical communism.' - Alejandro Colás, Millennium

'A well presented and well written text that covers many of the most relevant areas of contemporary discussion.' - Bob Millward, University of Central Lancashire

'Marxism and Social Science is to be welcomed as a counter to the near conventional wisdom that Marxism is moribund.' - Paul Wetherly, Contemporary Politics
