    One thought on “New Left Review 74”

    1. Good issue. Best bit was Watson's reply to Clark--although I find it problematic that she berates Bernstein's ideas based on how the SPD turned out. A Marxist should know better, methinks

    2. Long overdue attention is paid to the longer term social structures of Russia and some fascinating book reviews.
