Marxist Inquiries by Michael Burawoy

Book Description

This collection exemplifies the resurgence of Marxist ideas in contemporary social research. Its purpose is neither to cover all the areas of Marxist research nor to survey alternative Marxist perspectives or schools. Rather the volume assembles nine examples of the most interesting work being done today by younger sociologists who are seriously pursuing the rich and provocative arguments to be found in the ongoing Marxist tradition. All contributions build upon or react to Marxist theoretical perspectives. They employ such diverse research techniques as participant observation, statistical analysis, interviewing, and the examination of archives of public documents. Among the topics covered: - the economic bases of state policies and their determination by social and political struggles; - the politcal reshaping of international economic order; - industrial work in relation to other institutions (such as education, patriarchy, and citizenship); - the transformation of class structures in capitalist and state-socialist societies. Published as a supplement to "American Journal of Sociology, " these studies constitute essential reading both for those sociologists who see Marxism as a powerful framework for understanding capitalist societies and for those who may not be committed to working within the Marxist tradition but nevertheless want to see Marxist hypotheses fully researched and debated.
