On Karl Marx

Really Existing Nationalisms
A Post-Communist View from Marx and Engels
by Erica Benner
Really Existing Nationalisms challenges the conventional view that Marx and Engels lacked the theoretical resources needed to understand nationalism. It argues that the two thinkers had a much better explanatory grasp of national phenomena than is usually supposed, and that the reasoning behind their policy towards specific national movements was often subtle and sensitive to the ethical issues at stake. This new edition includes a new introduction.

The Theory of Need in Marx
by Agnes Heller
From Marx’s varying and passing interpretations of a theory of need, Agnes Heller unravels the main tendencies and demonstrates the importance which Marx attached to the “restructuring” of a system of needs going beyond the purely material.
