    By H.P. Adams

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    This book, originally published in 1940, is primarily intended to tell the English reader what is contained in the earlier works of Marx, with emphasis on what seemed to throw most light on the man and his systematic thought.

  4. Kritsman and the Agrarian Marxists (RLE Marxism)

    Edited by Terry Cox, Gary Littlejohn

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    Of all the scholarly work on the countryside done in pre-1917 Russia and in the Soviet Union in the 1920s, that of L.N. Kritsman and those influenced by him – the so-called ‘Agrarian Marxists’ – is perhaps the least well known. However, that work was of extremely high quality and very original. Its...

  6. The Communist Ideal in Hegel and Marx (RLE Marxism)

    By David MacGregor

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    Edited by Arnold Hughes

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    The collapse of Marxism in much of the Third World as well as Europe was so sudden and spectacular that it is hard to believe that in the space of seven years The Journal of Communist Studies could bring out special issues both on the creation of ‘Military Marxist Regimes in Africa’, and on their...

  8. Karl Marx: Man and Fighter (RLE Marxism)

    By Boris Nicolaievsky, Otto Maenchen-Helfen

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    Strife has raged about Karl Marx for decades, and never had it been so embittered as at the time of this book’s first publication, 1936. Marx had impressed his image on the time as not other had done. To some he was – and still is – a fiend, the arch-enemy of human civilisation, and the prince of...
