The declarations of Hugo Chavez in favour of socialism have provoked an important debate in Venezuela and internationally. However some have concluded that the 'old' ideas of Marxism are no longer valid and that it is necessary to invent a completely new and original theory of Socialism of the 21st century. This book is a reply to that view - expressed by Heinz Dieterich among others - and a defence of the fundamental ideas of Marxism and scientific socialism against these revisionist arguments.
Together with Reason In Revolt (also available from Wellred) this book is essential reading for all those who wish to understand Marxism and its relevance to today's world.
