    Lefebvre s oeuvre never fails to astound me, and coming back to this 15 years after I first read it was a welcome reminder of his versatility, the power of his thought, and that amid all the circuitousness of some of his work such as The Production of Space and parts of the first volume of Critique of Everyday Life there are times where he is direct and brilliantly clear One of the many things I like about this book is that he sets out not to trace the shape of a Marxist sociology but to outline how a sociological reading of work by Marx can inform sociological thinking and study More importantly, however, Lefebvre challenges the now all to common simplistic notion that Marxist sociological thinking is all about class he does this by putting Marx s work on alienation at the core of the book Alienation has become a problematic term woven through functionalist social policy and over written by a medicalised and individualising set of psychological approaches for Marx alienation is a collective and social condition where under capitalism workers individually and as a class are separated from what Marx calls their species being This approach is fundamentally at odds with the crudely functionalist forms of psychology and social policy that currently determine the meaning of the term The second key aspect to the argument is Marx s sociology is grounded in praxis it is not abstract theorising or thought experiments but based in actually existing social practice This means that although, for Lefebvre, Marxian thought and analysis requires a dialectical approach, its distinctive characteristic is its historical analytical form which allows it to challenge ideologies It is only after exploring these issues that Lefebvre gets on to class and the state.The really unsettling thing about re reading this in 2011 is that so much of his analysis of the contemporary remains current, even though the book was written in 1966 and published in English in 1968.

    Although there is a lot of interesting source material quoted in this book, there is also an equal amount of academic babble which limits the usefulness of the book to anyone who actually wants to know about the relationship between sociology and Marxism If I didn t already know this jargon I d have been completely lost.
