The book develops an analytical approach that draws on, but also provides criticism of, G.A. Cohen's functional interpretation of Marx's theory of history. Cohen's treatment of the 'base-superstructure' connection is rather limited, in contrast to the detailed argument in respect of the forces and relations of production, and this book seeks to remedy that deficiency. The book provides a much more systematic answer to the question of why bases need superstructures, in the form of a novel theory of the 'needs of capital'."--Jacket." ;
