This collection of classic articles affirms Marx's continuing relevance to modern debates on the role of law. The issues addressed include the implications of Marx's analysis of law for understanding the form and functions of law, justice and injustice, the critique of liberal legalism, the ideological nature of law, international human rights law, crime and punishment.

The legacy of Marx's work is reassessed in the context of recent historical changes.
