Ralph Miliband in this classic text raises pertinent questions like: How and why does capitalism limit democracy and the meaning of citizenship? What is class and class conflict? What is the relationship between the capitalist system and the state apparatus? What is the interconnection between classes and their agencies or parties? What are the instruments through which the dominant class exercises hegemony? Why did post-revolutionary regimes, like the Soviet Union, fail to establish a system of socialist democracy?
