Marxism and the Interpretation of Culture

"The publication of Marxism and the Interpretation of Culture is a major event in the discourse of cultural criticism of our time. In both the scope of the issues addressed and in the depth with which each issue is examined, this collection of essays demonstrates that dialectical materialism remains the intellectual strategy with which any socially engaged critical practice, Right, Left, or Center, must come to terms. This book is indispensable for any intellectual who wishes to comprehend the current condition, not only of Marxian theory, but of social and cultural criticism in general."--Hayden White, author of Metahistory and Tropics of Discourse

"With contributions from so many of the most important cultural theorists and new theoretical perspectives of the Left in the 1980s, Marxism and the Interpretation of Culture will stand as an intellectual monument to its times and be referred to for years to come."--William Leon McBride, author of The Philosophy of Marx
