    By Ian Forbes

    In what is the first sustained analysis of Marx’s attitude to the puzzle of the individual in history and society, this book, first published in 1990, challenges received views on the importance of class analysis and the place of a theory of human nature in Marx’s thought. The radical…

  • Marxism in Asia

    1st Edition

    By Colin Mackerras, Nick Knight

    Marxism is a theory which originated in the context of nineteenth-century industrialised Europe. Despite its European origins, Marxism has actually found greatest significance as a doctrine for change in the context of the underdeveloped peasant societies of Asia. This paradox has only been…

    By J. M. Barbalet

    This study, first published in 1983, explores the connections between Marx’s philosophy and his empirical analysis of society and state, by showing the different meanings of many of Marx’s concepts as their role in his theory changes and the theory itself develops.

    By H. T. Wilson

  • Marx's Theory of Ideology

    1st Edition

    By Bhikhu Parekh

    Although Marx’s concept of ideology has been a subject of considerable discussion, much of the debate has proved to be rather disappointing. There has been no systematic attempt to examine why Marx needed the concept of ideology, why it was an important concept for him and how it related to his…

  • Marx's 'Grundrisse' and Hegel's 'Logic'

    1st Edition

    By Hiroshi Uchida

    Edited by Terrell Carver

    Marx’s Grundrisse is acknowledged as the vital link between Marx’s early and late work. It is also a crucial text in elucidating Marx’s debt to the idealist philosopher G.W.F. Hegel. This book, first published in 1988, is the first full-length study of that relationship, in a thorough textual…

  • Marx's Proletariat

    The Making of a Myth, 1st Edition

    By David W. Lovell

    George Orwell wrote in Nineteen Eighty Four that ‘If there is hope, it lies in the proles.’ A century earlier Marx was unequivocal: the future belonged to the proletariat. Today such confidence might seem misplaced. The proletariat has not yet fulfilled Marx’s expectations, and seems unlikely ever…

  • The Making of Marx's Critical Theory

    A Bibliographical Analysis, 1st Edition

This book, first published in 1983, provides an analytical guide to the complex chronological…

  • Marx, Engels and National Movements

    1st Edition

    By Ian Cummins

    While their attempts to understand the workings of capitalism led them to the conclusion that the advanced societies of Western Europe were those most likely to be the setting for a successful socialist revolution, Marx and Engels by no means ignored developments outside this region. Indeed, given…
