Review of the hardback: '... a kaleidoscopic introduction to nine different approaches to the issue of 'Marxist legacies', held together by a skilful preamble setting out the general conceptual framework. ... the aim to unmask the law's ostensible neutrality is one of the recurring themes of the book ... should undergraduates born at the twilight of the Soviet regime be bothered at all with Marxism and international law? The book provides nine different reasons why they might, ranging from the most iconoclastic opinions against the rule of law to the more positive faith in the emancipatory power of the law.' The Cambridge Law Journal
Review of the hardback: 'Those who contributed to this book must be congratulated for this work. Their research is detailed and comprehensive and their analysis is innovative.' Commonwealth Law Bulletin
Review of the hardback: '... this book is certainly a must-read for anyone with an interest in 'what international lawyers can learn from Karl Marx'.' German Yearbook of International Law
