Chapter Summary

Marx's writings on Spain, most of them correspondence and feature-articles for the New York Daily Tribune, were compiled by David Riazanov in his 1917 Stuttgart edition of the Gesammelte Schriften von Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels 1852 bis 1862, with a brief editor's commentary. In 1960, Barcelona publishing house Ariel produced a new translation of the 1939 US edition, adding a foreword that, while initially published without a name, took the signature of its editor Manuel Sacristan from the 1970 third edition onwards. This foreword featured a number of penetrating insights concerning the manner in which Marx addressed the problems of the Spanish Revolution and the history of the country-coinciding with the analytical perspective adopted-and which were again reprised by Michael Lowy. Sacristán stresses that Marx's analysis of Spanish particularity operated largely at the superstructural level of institutions, culture, politics and the public psyche.
