Abstract:

"Karl Marx wrote a great deal about the countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America, but commentators upon his work have subsequently disagreed--sometimes violently--about the implications of his observations. In this book, the author strives to disentangle the threads of Marx's narrative and analysis and to demonstrate how, property understood, they form a coherent pattern and one still capable of application to the world about us. An outstanding merit of the book is that although it makes a signal and distinguished contribution to Marxism, it is at the same time one of the best and clearest introductions to Marxism that one could hope to find"--Provided by publisher.
