The collapse of the Soviet Union would seem to sound the death knell for Marxism as a blueprint for social change. Why has this doctrine - the repository of so many hopes and dreams - failed in its grand ambition to liberate the human race from poverty and oppression? Through a critical andsystematic analysis of what Marx and his disciples had to say about democracy, Joseph Femia sheds light on the reasons for this failure.
Joseph V. Femia is at University of Liverpool.
