The social and political thought of Karl Marx by Shlomo Avineri( Book )

73 editions published between 1967 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since the discovery of Marx's Early Writings, most of the literature concerned with Marx's intellectual development has centred around the so-called gap between the 'young' Marx, who was considered to be a humanist thinker, and the 'older' Marx, who was held to be a determinist with little concern for anything outside his narrow theory of historical materialism. Dr Avineri claims that such a gap between the 'young' and 'older' Marx did not exist. He supports his claim by a detailed study of the whole corpus of Marx's writing on social and political thought
Hegel's theory of the modern state by Shlomo Avineri( Book )

60 editions published between 1972 and 2003 in 6 languages and held by 1,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In order to present an overall view of the development of Hegel's political thinking the author has drawn on Hegel's philosophical works, his political tracts and his personal correspondence. Professor Avineri shows that although Hegel is primarily thought of as a philosopher of the state, he was much concerned with social problems and his concept of the state must be understood in this context."--Back cover

Varieties of Marxism by Shlomo Avineri( Book )

17 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays included in this volume are based on papers delivered at the International Symposium on Varieties of Marxism, held at the Van Leer Jerusalem Foundation on June 16-19,1974, and dedicated to the memory of George Lichtheim. When the idea of such a symposium was first raised, the organizers planned to have George Lichtheim as one of the main speakers at the event. In our last and brief meeting in London, I suggested this to him and Lichtheim gave his consent to attend the symposium, though at that time no date was yet fixed. His tragic death a few months later left a gap not only in the program of the symposium but in Marxist studies generally; it was felt that per haps one way of paying tribute to his contribution to the study of a subject so near to his mind would be to name the symposium in his memory and devote an introductory paper to an attempt at an intel lectual portrait of George Lichtheim as an historian of ideas. The volume as published includes all papers delivered at the sym posium, with the excep, tion of the papers of J.L. Talmon (Jerusalem) on 'Marxism and Nationalism' and Gajo Petrovic (Zagreb) on 'Yugo slav Marxism'. Appended is also a short obituary written by me on Lichtheim for the journal Political Science published by the American Political Science Association
Herzl's vision : Theodor Herzl and the foundation of the Jewish state by Shlomo Avineri( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theodor Herzl, a successful Viennese journalist, and Paris correspondent, followed the Dreyfus Affair, a notorious anti-Semitic incident in which a French Jewish army captain was falsely convicted of spying for Germany, which caused him to reject his early ideas regarding Jewish emancipation and assimilation, and to believe that the Jews must remove themselves from Europe and create their own state. In 1896, he published Der Judenstaat [The Jewish State], attracting international attention. Transforming himself into a political leader, he convened a Zionist Congress in Basel and founded a Zionist Organization. He met the Ottoman sultan, Kaiser Wilhelm II on several occasions, the pope, and secured an offer from the British government to facilitate a large Jewish settlement in East Africa. By the time of his death at age forty-four, he had made the idea of a Return to Zion into a reality, albeit only a weak one"--
The holy history of mankind and other writings by Moses Hess( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moses Hess is a major figure in the development of both early communist and Zionist thought. The Holy History of Mankind appeared in 1837, and was the first book-length socialist tract to appear in Germany, representing an unusual synthesis of Judaism and Christianity that showed the considerable influence upon Hess of Spinoza, Herder and Hegel. In due course many of Hess's ideas would find their way into the work of Karl Marx, and into subsequent socialist thought. The distinguished political scientist Shlomo Avineri provides the first full English translation of this text, along with new renditions of Socialism and Communism, A Communist Credo; and The Consequences of a Future Revolution of the Proletariat. All of the usual reader-friendly series features are provided, including a chronology, concise introduction and notes for further reading, in a work of special relevance to students of politics, modern European history, and the history of Zionism
