Cohen begins with a discussion and defense of historical materialism before expressing his own reservations about the theory, arguing that the truth of historical materialism is far more open than many Marxists believe. He then addresses some of the principal difficulties under which workers labor in contemporary capitalist class society, offering important new insights for all students of politics, political theory, and Marxism.
