Focusing on some of the most celebrated instances of traditional "Western Marxism", this book shows how such "icons of the left" have been progressively detached from their political roots in communist activism to the safe distance of utopian or revolutionary speculations. He assesses some recent critiques of "Western Marxism" in popular culture such as Soderbergh's film "Kafka", pointing out historic fallacies that underlie such wholesale repudiations.
