Review

Immensely learned and well-read . . .

Times Literary Supplement

In the hands of a creative thinker conviction and passion can give wings to the freedom struggle. Meszaros' book is a 'winger' – one of the most far-reaching books on the subject of Marx's theory of alienation since Lukács' seminal Geschichte und Klassenbewusstsein [History and Class Consciousness].
