This book rethinks Marx's sociology as a form of realist social theory, extending Roy Bhaskar's philosophical realism into the social sciences. It argues that social systems are best grasped as being shaped in the interface between specific kinds of structural and interactional mechanisms, namely between the forces and relations of production, base and superstructure, and social labour and class struggle.
