Marxism and Freedom: From 1776 Until Today

by Raya Dunayevskaya

In this classic exposition of Marxist thought, Raya Dunayevskaya, with clarity and insight, views today’s challenges by tracing the development and explaining the essential features of Marx’s analysis of history. Using as her point of departure the Industrial and French Revolutions, the European upheavals of 1848, the American Civil War, and the Paris Commune of 1871, Dunayevskaya shows how Marx, inspired by these events, adapted Hegel’s philosophy to analyze the course of history as a dialectical process that moves “from practice to theory.” This is an essential book in understanding capitalism and it’s impact on events today.
