Marx, Marginalism and Modern Sociology: From Adam Smith to Max Weber by Simon Clarke hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
Macmillan, 1982, Paperback.
From the cover: Develops an analysis of Marxs work as the basis of a critique of both orthodox Marxism and of both modern economics and sociology. The core of this book is an analysis of Marxs theory of alienated labour as the basis of Marxs evaluation of liberal social theory. This leads to both an original interpretation of Marxs work and to the liberal foundations of the subjects of economics and sociology. This evaluation is developed through an account of revolution, and of the parallel revolution in sociology carried through by Max Weber. The conclusion relates the critique to the subsequent developments in both Marxism and sociology.
