Marx and Marxism Web Guide What follows has been compiled by Ralph Dumain at http://www.autodidactproject.org/guidmarx.html and is used here with his kind permission.

Resources on the Web

Web resources on Marx and Marxism comprise too huge a category to document comprehensively. The focus here is Marxology and Marxist philosophy, theory, and history, primarily resources in the English language. While these links in turn lead to the widest variety of sources, the concentration here is on general sources and theoretical matters, implying, even with the coverage below, an inevitable slighting of: (1) specific thinkers, schools of thought, traditions, some of which I document separately (e.g. Soviet Philosophy, Frankfurt School); (2) organizations and political parties, political tendencies, journals, newspapers, and other periodicals, presses and publishers, archives, individuals, topical political issues, blogs, online discussion lists; (3) non-Marxist resources on socialism, communism, anarchism, the left, the general labor movement and social movements; (4) non-English-language sources.
