Lukacs's masterpiece History and Class Consciousness (1923) is commonly held to be the foundational text for the tradition known as Western Marxism. As Stalinism took over, Lukacs was subjected to attacks for deviations from the party line. In the mid 1920's Lukacs wrote a passionate response to this onslaught.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lukacs's polemic tells of a dogmatic, corrupt, ultimately murderous period in the transition from Stalinism ... it tells also of the passion, so vividly Judaic and Central European, for the life and clash of ideas."--George Steiner, Times Literary Supplement

"We almost hear Lenin himself murmuring, it happens that for eighty years no Marxist has ever properly understood History and Class Consciousness! Splendidly translated here by Esther Leslie and contextualized by an introduction by John Rees and a conclusion by Slavoj  i ek (both of them stimulating and suggestive)."--Fredric Jameson, Radical Philosophy
