Teaching Marxism

Teaching Marxism Neera Chandhoke Marxism: An Uncommon Introduction by Bertell Oilman; Sterling, New Delhi, 1990; pp xv + 116. THIS small, simple and rather sweet book actually consists of three texts:the preface is by Randhir Singh; the introduction to Marxist categories by Oilman comprises the second section; and the author devotes the third section to recounting the experiences faced by a Marxist scholar in teaching Marxism in an American university, The second text is frankly meant for the uninitiated and I will not comment on this, I will however comment on the third and the first section in that order since they are the most important parts of the book and merit attention.
