On Clemens Palme Dutt’s Book

Book Review by Ramkrishna Bhattacharya

Clemens Palme Dutt (1893 1975) is a name that every student of Marxism is acquainted with. He translated no fewer than 44 pieces.

Actually public sphere is not confined to India even when it affects India’s domiciles. For the time being, I keep it limited to India.
