Revolutionary Studies - Theory History People
Publisher: Haymarket Books
Argues for the centrality of Marxism to emancipatory politics through an exploration of core theoretical insights around themes including class and identity, democracy, and development. Explores the experiences of five historical revolutions (Russia, Cuba, Nicaragua, India, South Africa) and the ideas of five well-known Marxist figures (Georg Lukács, Antonio Gramsci, James Burnham, Dennis Brutus, and Daniel Bensaïd). Re-asserts Marxist thought and practice as a tradition of oppressed and exploited people the world over. Demonstrates the power and insights of Marxist theory in analysing twentieth-century revolutionary movements, and its continuing relevance for contemporary political struggle.
