Istvan Meszaros provides a lucid and polemical examination of the power of contemporary ideology. He undertakes a systematic analysis of ideology on a scale not attempted since Lukacs' History and Class Consciousness. The book is the result of many years of research and surveys and integrates a vast amount of material from the fields of Philosophy, Sociology, Political Theory and Political Economy. Firmly based on the classical literature (reaching back to the 18th century), the discussions are brought fully up-to-date with the assessment of contemporary preoccupations on the subject.
