A man or woman who is obliged to toil long hours in work, who has not had the benefit of a decent education and consequently lacks the habit of reading, finds great difficulty in absorbing some of the more complex ideas, especially at the outset.

Yet it was for workers that Marx and Engels wrote, and not for "clever" academics.

Once the basic concepts of Marxism are conquered, they open up a whole new outlook on politics, the class struggle, and every aspect of life.

However, every serious worker and student knows that nothing is worthwhile if attained without a degree of struggle and sacrifice.

"Every beginning is difficult" no matter what science we are talking about.

To the class conscious worker who is prepared to persevere, one promise can be made: once the initial effort is made to come to grips with unfamiliar and new ideas, the theories of Marxism will be found to be basically straight-forward and simple.

We are publishing the first of what will be a series of Marxist study guides.

The purpose is to provide a basic explanation of the fundamental ideas of Marxism with a guide to further reading and points to help organise discussion groups around these ideas.
