Tracing the influences of Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Kant and Hegel that gave rise to Marx's thought, Kain presents the development of, and tension between, concepts such as freedom and community, and sovereignty and rights.

Clearly and precisely written, Marx and Modern Political Theory is a welcome addition to Marxian scholarship. In the post-communist age and in the search for the social and political soul of Eastern Europe, this book will help us return to the foundational principles and key concepts of Marx.--George McCarthy, Kenyon College
