Editorial Reviews

?Gorman has assembled a multidisciplinary and multinational team of academicians to produce this handy reference volume. Accompanied by the Biographical Dictionary of Neo-Marxism, also edited by Gorman, this work sketches the practitioners and theorists belonging to the orthodox, i.e., materialist, strain of Marxism. The more than 210 clearly written and concise entries range in length from a paragraph to Allen Wood's masterful nine-page essay on Marx. The activists and thinkers included hail from more than 50 countries; a useful appendix gives groupings by nationality. The Third World Marxists, whose main contributions are generally applications rather than theoretical innovation, are well represented. Besides basic biographical data, each profile provides a synopsis of the person's principal ideas and writings. Although not intended as a source for indepth research, the well-indexed biographies effectively identify these figures and situate them within the Marxist tradition. A brief bibliography lists primary and secondary materials for further study. College, university, and public library collections.?-Choice
