This copy was owned and signed by Graeme Shankland (1917–1984), an architect, town planner, and Communist who didn't care too much for the old Victorian townscapes, but created enormous programmes of renewal in ‘outworn’ Victorian city centres (his plan for Liverpool was apparently incredibly brutal, earning him the sobriquet 'the Butcher of Liverpool' from fellow architects and conservationists. He also drew up plans for Hook in Hampshire, but local opposition successfully thwarted these plans.
First published in 1908, Plekhanov's purpose was to elaborate historical materialism in the context of the general philosophical outlook of Marxism.
Fair condition. The covers are tanned to the edges and bumped to the spine. There is some creasing to the the pages but it remains in good readable condition.
