The Class Structure of a Post-Communist Social Formation

Reflections on Fordulat 26.

This issue is the outcome of a collective work of young scholars working together in the so-called Situation Workshop (Helyzet Műhely). Th e review is limited to the first two chapters analyzing the Hungarian social formation and its class structure from a world-system perspective. It praises the theoretical coherence of the work and welcomes the emphasis on class. It expresses doubts about the Soviet Marxist distinction between “socialism” and “communism”, and claims that Marxist class analysis cannot be based on the concept of division of labor, as Marx defi ned classes on the grounds of relations of production.
