Part dictionary and part encyclopedia, this book has become the
standard reference work on the concepts of Marxism and the
individuals and schools of thought that have subsequently
contributed to the body of Marxist ideas.
"A remarkable editorial achievement. The book can be confidently recommended as a fair and informed account of the community of Marxist positions." New York Times Book Review "An invaluable aid in identifying the key terms in Marx's own work and distinguishing their force in Marx from the uses made of them by later writers." Times Literary Supplement "Bottomore and his colleagues have done a remarkable job ... At last I can look up the transformation problem, the Second Interantional, or the Aiastic mode of production without digging through half a dozen books for a half-remembered reference." Charles Tilly, University of Michigan
