Summary "Christians and Marxists have cooperated in various forms of political work in recent decades, and - after earlier years of antagonism - thinkers on both sides have come to take each other seriously. Andrew Collier's ground-breaking book analyses how Christianity and Marxism can meet in terms of their philosophical positions, without watering either down, but at their full strength."
"Collier argues that Christianity and Marxism are, or can be brought, closer than is commonly thought. He concludes with a discussion of the ways in which both movements can be made truer to themselves by learning from each other, and how they can consequently be more effective in their projects of human liberation. This book is the first to consider the philosophical issues at stake in the Christian/Marxist dialogue for seventy years, and will be of great interest to all those involved in philosophy, theology, politics and Marxism, including the philosophy of politics, the philosophy of religion, and liberation theology."--BOOK JACKET
