In this timely reissue of this essential collection, Ralph Miliband sets out the domain of the struggle. From conflicts within the state to the world capitalist system, Miliband's acute insight and clarity of argument makes this a key text in postwar socialist thought. The collection includes essential essays, such as in-depth engagements with the works of Marx, Bahro and Polantzas. This new edition is a bold reminder of the debate concerning the future direction of Britain, what it has lost and what is possible in the future.
