Marxism and Social Theory by Jonathan Joseph
Book DescriptionMarxist theory has made a major and lasting contribution to social and political thought. This text offers a concise introduction to its main ideas and debates in a way that is easily accessible for the reader new to this rich and substantial subject. Adopting a measured but critical stance, it first assesses the key thinkers and then goes on to look at a number of debates and recent developments in Marxist thought. It therefore provides not only an engaging account of how Marxism developed historically but also an assessment of how it is continuing to develop.
