Max Shachtman


Under the Banner of Marxism

(January 1949)

Extract from Max Shachtman, Under the Banner of Marxism, Bulletin of the Workers Party, Vol. IV No. 1 (Part II), 14 January 1949, pp. 62–108.
These 6 extracts are included in the Workers’ Liberty book The Fate of the Russian Revolution: Lost Texts of Critical Marxism, Vol. 1.
Additional transcription by Einde O’Callaghan (indicated by square brackets).
The complete 120-page document is Shachtman’s response to a document written by his long-time collaborator, Ernest Erber, to explain his decision to resign from the Workers Party.
The chapter titles come from the Workers Liberty book as the extracts have no titles in the original.
Marked up by A. Forse & Einde O’Callaghan for the Marxists’ Internet Archive.
