Chapter Summary

'Hegel's logic is the algebra of the revolution'. A book that is the product of an interest in Hegel on the one hand and participation in a miner's strike in West Virginia on the other promises to have unusual qualities. It has three great merits. The first is that she has tried to write a history of Marxist theory in which the development of the theory is linked at every point to the corresponding developments both in society and in the political experience of socialists. The second is that she has utilised some of the source material of Marxism. The third merit is that it provides a framework for a revaluation of Lenin in which a change can be noted from an emphasis on the party as the revolutionary manipulator of a passive working class to emphasis on the potential revolutionary spontaneity of the working class.
