Marxists are concerned with showing how networks of social relations, including international relations, are produced by underlying economic structures. In recent years, Soviet, Chinese, Yugoslav, dissident East European, Cuban and Vietnamese Marxists have adapted their doctrines to suit their active participation in the international system, whilst at the same time leaving on that system their own distinctive marks. This study reconstructs the theories on international relations put forth by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, and places them in the context of more recent theories advanced by Marxist diplomats and intellectuals. The text emphasizes significant developments which have taken place in the past five years.
