Introduction
The Marx–America dialectic
in Marxism and America
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Although America has had moments of sharp anti-communist hysteria, and although the pattern of American history has been declared “exceptional” in that its individualist culture and capitalist consensus resists the Marxian prognosis of class contestation and socialism, the United States of America has also had a vibrant Marxist tradition capable of great bursts of creativity and a certain degree of intellectual and political influence. Beginning by charting the writings of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels on the United States, this introduction to a book collection of eleven scholarly essays on Marxism and the United States posits a “Marx-America dialectic” generative both of frisson and productivity.
