MEDIA REVIEWS

'In this excellent book Wendling advances this debate very substantially by setting Marx's discussion of alienation in the context of the 19th-century (and later) attitude to the development of machinery...in my opinion anyone who writes at any length about alienation in Marx must address her work seriously and in depth.' - Mark Cowling, Studies in Marxism

'This is a scholarly and well argued treatment of some fundamental and central issues of Marxist theory which will be of great interest to readers in a wide range of disciplines. It presents what will be, to most readers, original and thought-

provoking ideas and arguments in a lively and stimulating way' - Sean Sayers, University of Kent, UK

'Professor Wendling's project is an important one, and it is developed very well, in very interesting ways, and it will attract anyone who is interested in Marx's philosophy, philosophy of technology, and/or the critique of capitalism. Wendling demonstrates very well the ambivalence toward the human being and the human subject in Marx's work, and indeed she fills out this problem in ways that are remarkable, fascinating, and provocative' - Bill Martin, DePaul University, USA
