s one of the foremost Marxist political theorists of the twentieth century.=
 =0AHe became justly famous for his work on social classes and the state, a=
nd for his engagements and debates with a range of influential thinkers, fr=
om Althusser and Foucault to Miliband and Laclau. =0AThis volume presents a=
 selection of Poulantzas=E2=80=99 key writings in legal philosophy and poli=
tical sociology, some of which are translated here for the first time.  =0A=
These seminal texts address a range of issues including the theory of hegem=
ony, Sartrean existentialism, fascism, and the Greek military coup of 1967.=
  =0AAlso included is an interview with Poulantzas himself from 1979, and h=
is classic, frequently cited dispute with Ralph Miliband on the nature of t=
he capitalist state. =0APoulantzas provided a remarkably prescient analysis=
 of capitalist political economy, during the most turbulent years of its ev=
olution into the globalized system we live in today.  =0AHis writings prefi=
gured many of the central debates in contemporary Marxist theory, and these=
 articles, spanning the length of his career, offer an essential and compre=
hensive introduction to his thought.=0A         =0APraise for State, Power,=
 Socialism:=0A=E2=80=9CIt is Poulantzas=E2=80=99 great virtue to have seen =
so clearly that an adequate Marxist theory of politics must be able to deal=

utations of Marxism.=E2=80=9D=0ATimes Literary Supplement=0A=0APraise for P=
olitical Power and Social Classes:=0A=E2=80=9CThis is a book which deserves=
 a very wide audience. Of great interest for Americans is the fact that he =
