Marx and Marxism: an introduction, describes the basic concepts of Marxism, explaining clearly such terms as class struggle, materialism, dialectic and mode of production. Special emphasis is given to Soviet Union where, since the Revolution of 1917, Marxism has been interpreted in a number of different ways by Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin.
The discussion also takes into account the countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America who have in the recent past, freed themselves from colonial domination and where Marxism has emerged as a major force in framing government policies. This book forms an ideal introductory text for students of all disciplines who want to have an idea of Marxism.
