Praise For From Marxism to Post-Marxism? (Radical Thinkers)

“Impressive … with a finely tuned style of analysis and judgment.”

“One could not hope for a better guide for the arduous journey still to come.”

“Regular readers of the New Left Review will find in this book many of the traits associated with that journal: a broad—sometimes Olympian—sweep; a level-headed combination of radical critique and sober analysis; a dialectical conception of society as a ‘totality,’ irreducible to this or that social-scientific discipline.”
—Ian Cummins, Monash University, Melbourne
