Mandel, Ernest, and George Novack. The Marxist Theory of Alienation. New York: Pathfinder, 1970.

An original introd. and rpts. of three essays by EM and GN. Note the cover of TMTA: "Detail of a fresco by Diego Rivera. This panel . . . was inspired by an actual punch press which was operated by manacled workers whose hands were automatically pulled back by the handcuffs each time the press descended" (cover note on copyright page). The essays develop systematically the causes of alienation symbolized by the picture on the cover.
