Criticism &c. is concerned with revolutionary ideas, specifically, the revolutionary humanism of Marx as he developed it from 1844 to his death in 1883. The medium of the book is the one we are chiefly concerned with, so most of the posts are about books, both new and old.

We try provide a link to OCLC’s WorldCat for each book mentioned, not because we endorse everything OCLC does, but because this is a reliable way to provide the reader with some basic bibliographic information, as well as a way to find the title in a library.

When possible, links to Open Library records will be provided as well.

We are also interested in mass book digitization efforts and will make attempts to link to full-text scans when possible.
