Capitalism, Socialism, and the Transition from One to the Other

Socialism and Commodity Production: Essay in Marx Revival by Paresh Chattopadhyay, Leiden, and Boston: Brill, 2018; pp xiii + 300, 8,175 (hardcover).


The subtitle of this book is unduly modest: it is not really an “essay” but a substantial and extremely scholarly exploration of what Marx, Engels, and others have written about socialism in several different languages. Above all, it is an extremely timely critique of Marx’s followers who use the term “socialism” and “socialist revolution” in a very different and even opposite sense to what Marx means by these.
