First Russian edition of Theoretical Foundations of Marxism; a German edition, Theoretische Grundlagen der Marxismus, was published in the same year. In the present work Tugan-Baranovsky shows the influence of the revisionism present throughout the socialist movement at the turn of the century. He approaches Marxism from an anti-consumptionist, revisionist legal-Marxist perspective, declaring Marx’s theories to be ‘partially correct’. In three sections, the text looks at the founding ideas of a material understanding of history and its psychological impact, husbandry and general life, class war, and value and cost.
