Late Marx and the Russian Road addresses in a new way Marxs attitudes to societies we describe today as developing or peripheral and to social and socialist theories which originated in them and which reflect their particularities. It argues that the intensive research coupled with public silence during the last decade of Marxs life represented a new, theoretical, postCapital threshold. This phase correspondednot accidentallywith intensive studies of Russia and contacts with its theorists and revolutionaries. Russia was the first developing society in the sense accepted today, and its social and intellectual context were to produce by the turn of the century the first wave of modernization theories and strategies, as well as Leninism. Included in this work are the translations of Marxs notes from the late 1880s, hailed as one of the most important finds of the last century.
