Varieties of Marxist Humanism
Philosophical Revision in Postwar Eastern Europe
Satterwhite, James
Satterwhite analyzes the work of revisionist thinkers in four East European countries whose critique of the orthodox “official” Marxism laid the philosophical groundwork for the 1989-1990 upheavals in Eastern Europe and a reassessment of Marxist thought generally throughout the world.

James H. Satterwhite is emeritus professor of history and political science at Bluffton University.
“Varieties of Marxist Humanism offers a serious and well-balanced contribution to a deeper understanding of controversies in Marxism behind the so-called 'Iron Curtain.' . . .The book focuses on the activity of 'critical thinkers' in four countries: Poland, Hungary, former Czechoslovakia and former Yugoslavia [and] emphasizes the controversial nature of eastern European critical thought: it 'used the same vocabulary official Marxism used.'”—Slavic Review

“The achievement of this book is the new light it sheds on the years of [Eastern Europe's] de-Stalinization. The author accomplishes this not, as one might have expected, by rummaging through hitherto inaccessible archival materials, but by showcasing the corpus of published writings of a unique collection of Marxist thinkers.”—American Historical Review
