Book Description

This book is largely based on What Marx Really Meant which was written by Cole and published in 1934. It is a revaluation of Marx’s essential ideas and methods in relation to contemporary social structures and developments and considers the bearing of Marx’s theories on the structure of social classes, which altered greatly since he formulated his account of them.
