Few works occupy such an important place in the Monthly Review Press catalog as Hal Draper’s magisterial, five-volume series Karl Marx’s Theory of Revolution.
Volume I, which examines Marx’s attitude toward democracy, the state, intellectuals as revolutionaries, and much, much more, was first published to great acclaim in 1977.
In The New York Review of Books, Robert Heilbroner called it “an extraordinarily stunning work written in a fresh, open, often amusing style, which comes as a welcome relief after the turgidities of so much Marx writing. Despite its length and heavy reliance on citation, the easy prose and the intrinsic importance and interest of the subject matter make this volume pleasant and quick to read.”
Released: January 1977
And Monthly Review founder Paul M. Sweezy described it as “a work of Marxology in the best sense of the term. I am convinced that it is and will remain an indispensable source for all serious students of Marxian ideas in the broad field of politics and political science.”
