Abstract

Capital & Class Nationalism and Marxism, then, is stronger on Marxist debates of national- ism than it is on Marxian concepts of class, productive forces, relations of production and so on . What proves a real stumbling block to an original Marxist treatment of nationalism is the failure to recognise that such concepts need to be concretised in the same way that Munck tries to concret- ise the concept of nationalism . Neverthe- less, the book is not without merit . For the reader or student in search of an intro- Richard Sennett ductory summary of the numerous Marxist The Fall of Public Man arguments on the theme of nationalism, London : Faber and Faber, 1986 0 571 13968 X Marxism and Nationalism offers a useful 373pp, £6 .95 (p/b), ISBN guided tour of the multi-faceted debate which has raged for over a century . It has Reviewed by Bob Lumley the advantage, too, of going beyond the 1917 limit of Horace Davis's influential WE LIVE at a time when all that is public is tome, Socialism and Nationalism to incor- being downgraded, while the private is identified with good quality, fast delivery porate many contemporary and Third .
