"Full of spirited and cogent arguments, prodigiously researched and vivaciously told, Marxism and America is tailor-made for activists and scholars of the present moment." Alan Wald, University of Michigan

"At last, a collection on Marxism in the United States that pays serious attention to women, sexuality and feminism." Nancy Holmstrom, Rutgers University
