In the words of Bertell Ollman, professor of politics at New York University and author of The Dance of the Dialectic: Steps in Marx’s Method, “No living Marxist philosopher has done more to clarify and to show the continuing relevance of Marx’s most important theories than István Mészáros. In this work, the dialectic of structure and history provides the framework with which to resolve some of the most difficult conundrums in Marx’s treatment of political economy, politics, society and consciousness. The reader emerges a full head taller from the effort with a clearer grasp of what is to be done and how (and with whom) to do it. An essential project, brilliantly carried out!”
