This major exploration of the Marxist theory of national struggle takes issue with various modern contributors, notably Hobsbawm and Nairn. Professor Blaut draws on his wide experience of the Third World to argue that Marxist theory can be a powerful weapon for liberation struggles against colonialism and neo-colonialism. He suggests ways to strengthen the theory, particularly when trying to understand minorities in Western and Third World societies.
