KIRKUS REVIEW

Eastman, thoroughly qualified to appraise the basic principles and values of Marxism, as it has been evidenced in the tests of recent years, here presents a scholarly analysis, based on historical proof and evidence, and comes to the conclusion, on all fronts, that what passes for social science is virtually a disguised religious belief. He stands as an independent, is objectively critical in presentation of Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, and the attempts to identify the scientific pragmatism of John Dewey with the Marxian philosophy -- the so called ""Americanization"" of Marx. A book that will appeal to thoughtful students, rather than complete neophytes, in spite of Eastman's aim to that end.
