These notes deal particularly with the epochs of historic development and their evolutionary stages. which for some time has been a subject of controversy among Marxist historians. They are important for understanding the approach of historical materialism, and also as background for further development of the Marxist study of history. Dr. Eric J. Hobsbawm provides a full explanatory introduction, and additional texts are included from German Ideology and the Correspondence. 160 pages.
