First published in 1978, this book rapidly established itself as a classic of modern Marxism. Cohen's masterful application of advanced philosophical techniques in an uncompromising defence of historical materialism commanded widespread admiration. In the ensuing twenty years, the book has served as a flagship of a powerful intellectual movement - analytical Marxism. In this expanded edition Cohen offers his own account of the history, and the further promise, of analytical Marxism. He also expresses reservations about traditional historical materialism, in the light of which he reconstructs the theory, and he studies the implications for historical materialism of the demise of the Soviet Union.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is the perfect book for anyone wishing to get to grips with the type of systematized version of classical Marxism that has been developed in the Anglo-Saxon idealist tradition. It is also an important reference for anyone wishing to develop a critique of this version and to advance to a more creative, and less idealist, engagement with Marxist thought. - Years Work in Critical Cultural Theory
