About the Series

Marxist thought continues to be relevant in the modern world, perhaps to the surprise of those who celebrated the fall of the Berlin Wall with the declaration that democracy and the market had ‘won’ the march of history. This 23-volume set collects together both accounts of the development of Marxism and critiques of its thinking. Out-of-print or had to find, these titles form an essential reference source for the understanding of Marxism in all its varied facets.
