Book Review: ALR 52


Pete Beilharz


Everyone knows Ernest Mandel, either as marxist' scholar or as trotskyite activist. Those familiar with the former will know him through the mammoth Marxist Economic Theory (1962), Europe Versus America (1970) and Formation of the Economic Thought of Karl Marx (1971). Those who know Mandel in the latter form will associate him with the International Majority Tendency of the Fourth International, and remember him as skilful propagandist and persuasive orator.
