Toward a Marxist Theory of International Law: An Introductory Bibliography

Patrick S. O’Donnell (2018)

Not all of the titles here are by avowed Marxists; those that are not were included for their
possible implications for a Marxist Theory of International Law. As with most of my
bibliographies, two constraints are conspicuous: books only, in English. This compilation
should be viewed in conjunction with the following bibliographies:

(i) Beyond Capitalist Agribusiness: Toward Agroecology & Food Justice; (ii) Democratic Theory;
(iii) Global Distributive Justice; (iv) Human Rights; (v) International Law; (vi) Marx and
Marxism; (vii) Philosophy of Law & Legal Theory; and (viii) Workers, the World of Work, and
Labor Law.
