Marxism and the French Left Studies on Labour and Politics in France, 1830-1981 by Tony Judt

Marxism and the French Left Studies on Labour and Politics in France, 1830-1981


Marxism and the French Left Studies on Labour and Politics in France, 1830-1981 by Tony Judt

Unlike most books, which treat labor, Socialist and Communist history separately and view French Marxism as a self-contained philosophical phenomenon, Marxism and the French Left offers a refreshingly different approach to the subject. Judt emphasizes the complex and interwoven themes that unify the topics of his essays to construct a distinctive and original interpretation of French left-wing politics over the past 150 years. A well-informed and persuasive reinterpretation of the old French Left that is now receding beyond recall, except for historians. -Times Literary Supplement
