7 Preface THERE are two substantial reasons why the study of religion should include some study of Marxism. One is that the work ofkarl Marx has had an important bearing on methods of study in history and sociology, two of the major disciplines employed in the study of religion. The other is that Marxism, whether rightly or wrongly, has been regarded by a considerable number of scholars as a religion; those who have characterised it in this way have included historians, philosophers, theologians and sociologists. One has, therefore, to make some attempt to decide how far, if at all, this view can be justified. This book is intended to serve as an introduction to these and other issues which arise when one juxtaposes the name of Karl Marx and the word 'religion'. The sources available to the student and general reader for the exploration of the area of interaction between these two are not very plentiful, however. There is the collection of extracts entitled Marx and Engels on Religion (1957). This contains most of the significant references to European religion (with the notable exception of Karl Marx's 'On the Jewish Question'). Beyond Europe, Marx's concern with religion was, understandably, very slight. He did, however, during the 1850s have occasion to concern himself with Indian religion, and the articles in which his references on this subject are to be found have been collected in Marx Engels on Colonialism (1968). They are also to be found ins. Avineri's Karl Marx on Colonialism and Modernisation (1968). What is still needed at the introductory level is a study which will fill in the background details, provide historical connecting links between the various references to religion made by Marx from time to time, and set both the European and the Indian references within a comparative framework. The present volume will, it is hoped, help to meet this need. On the way a little time will be spent here and there in exploring some related issues such as Max Weber's sociology of religion in relation to that of Marx, especially with regard to India, and in considering the significance, in relation to Marx, of one or two other notable figures such as Jakob Boehme, William Blake and Sri Aurobindo Ghose. Earlier versions of certain parts of this book have appeared in various journals, and acknowledgement is gratefully made of permission to use the material here in revised form. Chapter 3 originally appeared in New

8 Vlll Karl Marx and Religion Community (the Journal of the Community Relations Commission) vol. II, no. 2 (1973). Part of chapter 6 was published in The University of Leeds Review, vol.16, no.1 (May 1973), under the title 'Max Weberinlndia'. An earlier version of chapter 8 was delivered as one of a series of public lectures at the University oflancaster. Part of chapter 9 was presented as a paper to the British Sociological Association Study Group on Religion at Durham in 1975 and appeared subsequently in Religion, vol. 5, Part 2 (Autumn 1975). In connection with the typing of the present work I gladly acknowledge the swift and efficient help given by Mrs Jeanne Lockett of the Department of Comparative Religion, University of Manchester.
