The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx (Alex Callinicos)

Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx - cvr“My aim in this book has been to fill a gap in the literature on Marx by providing an accessible modern introduction to his life and thought by someone who shares his basic beliefs on history, society and revolution. I am grateful to a number of people for their help and encouragement: to Peter Clark and Tony Cliff, who had the idea in the first place; to Tony Cliff for his searching criticisms of the book in manuscript; and to Peter Goodwin and Peter Marsden, who performed the same task as well as the more difficult one of trying to make the book readable. Although the general political standpoint taken in this book is that of the Socialist Workers Party, the errors it undoubtedly contains are all my own. I would like to dedicate The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx to Joanna Seddon, to whom I owe, among other things, such knowledge as I have of the Utopian socialists.” (Foreword)

mga uri. Kapag binibigyan ng Partido ng espesyal na atensyon ang mga
grupong panlipunan tulad ng mga mangingisda, pambansang minorya, setler,
kababaihan at kabataan, hindi ito ginagawa para palabuin o pawalan ng
halaga ang makauring nilalaman kundi para bigyan ng nararapat na atensyon ang partikular na kundisyong taglay o kailangang ng bawat grupong panlipunan.” (mula sa MKLRP)
