  1. Marx's Construction of Social Theory (RLE 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...

  2. 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...

    By Gavin Kitching

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. Marx's Proletariat (RLE Marxism)

    The Making of a Myth

    By David W. Lovell

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    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...

  7. The Making of Marx's Critical Theory (RLE Marxism)

    A Bibliographical Analysis

    By Allen Oakley

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    Marx’s written output was massive. Much of it remained unpublished in his own lifetime and there is still no complete edition of the extant works, although most have been published in one form or another. This book, first published in 1983, provides an analytical guide to the complex chronological...

    An Historical and Critical Study

    By George Lichtheim

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Marxism

    This book, first published in 1961 and revised in 1964, is both a critical study of a body of thought and an historical account of how Marxist theory arose from the context of European history in the 19th century. It traces the development of socialist thought from the French to the Russian...

  9. Karl Marx in his Earlier Writings (RLE Marxism)

    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. As such, it is an invaluable contribution to the study of Marx and...

  10. 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...
