A collection of essays by Bertell Ollman. Ollman tackles issues such as Karl Marx's concepts of class, class consciousness, and communism; he argues for the absorption of Wilhelm Reich's insights about the social function of sexual repression in maintaining capitalist relations; and he dicusses the various problems involved in trying to teach 'Marxism' in an academic context without destroying its central purpose as an instrument of class struggle.
