    By Ian Forbes

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    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...

  3. Marxism & the Open Mind (RLE Marxism)

    By John Lewis

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    It has been said that the normal English reaction to uncomfortable facts of life, such as Marxism, is an embarrassed but determined silence. That anyone should experience a desire to enquire into ideas as such, and to probe into the motives influencing them, seems extraordinary. Marxism is, however...

  4. Marxism in Asia (RLE Marxism)

    By Colin Mackerras, Nick Knight

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    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 H.T. Wilson

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    By J.M. Barbalet

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    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. Beginning with an examination of...

  7. Marx's Theory of Ideology (RLE Marxism)

    By Bhikhu Parekh

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    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...

  9. Marx, Engels and National Movements (RLE Marxism)

    By Ian Cummins

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    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...

  10. Marx's 'Grundrisse' and Hegel's 'Logic' (RLE Marxism)

    By Hiroshi Uchida

    Edited by Terrell Carver

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    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...
