Once the revolution has taken place, the final stage of human history leads to socialism. This idea of social creation based on class conflict, economic repression, and the series of epochs creates the overarching theory of Marxism. The emphasis on the economic relationship in regards to human philosophy becomes the fundamental differing shift in historical approaches. The focus on the laboring class, a subject often left out of past historical dialogues makes Marxism an important school of theory in historical writing. By creating the stages of societal development that each eventually end in its collapse, Marx in such creates his
The treatises of imperialism, like other social subjects, have caused many controversies among those who are deeply interested despite their diverse national backgrounds. Nonetheless, no matter how heated debates the subject has raised, it is essential to fully deal with it based on historical sources. This paper will decode imperialism from the following primary sources to help people better understand the impacts of imperialism on the world’s politics, economies and cultures: John A.

(Klingender, 1943) To be more specific, the relationship between materialist art history and Marxist art history is demonstrated with the practice of artwork in relation to society, economy or politics, with detailed and specific analysis in the context of social cultures and the idea of class in the capitalist society. (D’Alleva, 2005) In a particular cultural environment, we can realize the outgrowth of the interactions between patrons and artists in a more complicated way.

The little that Gramsci did mention regarded his perception of International Relations as a direct subset of social relations, and so any developments in social structure would naturally impact the nature of relations amongst states.1 Neo-Gramscian theory places particular emphasis on the historical contextualization of events, in contrast to the traditional IR paradigm that modern events are capable of being analyzed in isolation from their historical elements. The key unit of analysis in neo-Gramscian terms is that of the “historic bloc”, a grouping cemented by a particular ideology perpetuated by the dominant class to
Marxists had undervalued the vital importance of nationalism, the state and war, and the implication of the balance of power, international law and diplomacy for the structure of world politics. Marx and Engels, perceptive nevertheless they were about the march of capitalist globalization and growing economic disparities, could not have predicted.
