Marxism and the Proletariat: A Lukácsian Perspective

Front Cover
Pluto Press, 1993 - Political Science - 261 pages
In an unusual aproach to Marxist studies, Perkins uses the category of the proletariat as the key to which to demarcate different schools of thought within Marxism and consequently to assess their degree of fidelity to Marx's own thought. He examines the contribution to this perspective made by Lukacs and demonstrates how Lukacs is able to account for the apparent failure of Marxism in the political conditions of advanced capitalism.
