Based on the highly successful series of study guides issued
by Socialist Appeal a few years back, this book brings together key material
and introductions on the three basic areas of Marxist theory: Dialectical
Materialism, Historical Materialism and Marxist Economics. Each section of the
book includes a clear and easy-to-understand introduction to the subject aimed
both at readers new to Marxism as well as those seeking to refresh their
understanding of Marxist theory.
A pocket sized book with just 175 pages, this work will
provide a valuable alternative to the mass of unreadable rubbish being pushed
out over recent years, aimed mainly at an academic readership, usually with the
intention of undermining the basic methods of Marxism. Anyone who really wants
to know about Marxist theory should get this new book now.
In addition to these introductions, the book includes
extracts or full versions of key articles by authors such as Marx, Lenin and
Trotsky. To assist study groups each section includes a series of questions and
a reading list. A short glossary is also included at the end. The book also
reproduces the 1983 document, written by Alan Woods and Rob Sewell, called ‘What
is Marxism?’ which ties the whole thing together and was issued to mark the
centenary of Karl Marx’s death.
