' ... a remarkable book ... Ollman has discovered a kind of Ariadne's thread through the maze of Marxian linguistic problems ... brilliant and illuminating.' New York Review of Books 'Ollman's book distinguishes itself from the rest by virtue of its scholarly concentration, readability, sobriety and above all relevance to issues which are central, not only to an understanding of marx, but also (even more importantly) to an understanding of the complex world which Marx himself endeavored to comprehend and describe.' Political Studies ' ... as authoritative and comprehensive a study as any I have read. But the striking originality of the book lies in its method, in the preliminary alanysis which Ollman undertakes to study Marx's 'peculiar' use of terms.' Science and Society
