Appearing quarterly since 1936, Science & Society is the longest continuously published Marxist scholarly journal in the world. Its intellectual coverage includes social and political theory, first-order historical research, economics, philosophy, theoretical foundations in the natural sciences, literature, and the arts. In both general issues, and special issues devoted to particular topics, the journal provides serious analysis of the contemporary human condition and visions of social alternatives, and contributes to the continuing critical redevelopment of the Marxist tradition.

"The Marxist intellectual tradition in American has been well represented by Science & Society for over seventy-five years. The journal never fails to enlighten and challenge its readers."

-Manning Marable

"Like a good wine, Science & Society seems to get better with age. For a journal that always sets the standard for excellence in serious Marxist scholarship, that is quite an achievement. Right now, the clarity, range and incisiveness of its articles and reviews are needed more than ever. Who dares miss a single issue? Not I."

-Bertell Ollman, New York University
