Why Marxism? The Continuing Success of a Failed Theory
Why Marxism? The Continuing Success of a Failed Theory
By Robert G. Wesson
Basic Books, 1976, 281 pp

Why, the author asks, despite its many failures in prediction and practice, does Marxism have such a worldwide appeal? The reason, he suggests, is that it can be made to serve the needs of diverse protest groups and radical movements. A well-written book.
