This selection of Alasdair MacIntyre’s early writings on Marxism and ethics aims both to fill a gap in the academic literature on MacIntyre’s ethical theory, and to offer a contribution to more recent debates on the ethics of revolution.

From the Back Cover:

Although Alasdair MacIntyre is best known today as the author of "After Virtue" (1981), he was, in the 1950s and 1960s, one of the most erudite members of Britaina (TM)s Marxist Left: being a militant within, first, the Communist Party, then the New Left, and finally the heterodox Trotskyist International Socialism group. This selection of his essays on Marxism from that period aims to show that his youthful thought profoundly informed his mature ethics, and that, in the wake of the collapse of the state-capitalist regimes in Russia and Eastern Europe, the powerful and optimistic revolutionary Marxist ethics of liberation he articulated in that period is arguably as salient to anti-capitalist activists today as it was half a century ago.
