Editorial Reviews

"The good news about this book is that it provides very brief introductions to approximately two hundred individual Marxists more or less theoretically active in the twentieth century. For Americans generally unfamiliar with the richness and diversity of the Marxian tradition, the sketchy introductions will be most instructive. The attached lists of writings by and about these Marxists will make possible the pursuit of Marxist theorizations that attract the interest of users of this reference volume. The inclusion of Marxists from regions of the world beyond Europe and North America further enhances its usefulness.... For those who take [the Marxian] tradition seriously, who wish to benefit from its many discoveries and insights, and who do not want laboriously to renvent wheels already fashioned by Marxists, this book will be a useful reference."-International Labor and Working Class History
