50 THE MINNESOTA REVIEW DAVID PECK THE NEW MARXIST CRITICISM: A BIBLIOGRAPHY, III This is the third and probably the last installment of ''The New Marxist Criticism" bibliography. Since the second listingin 1976 (the first appeared in 1974), this whole field of the Marxist approach to literature and culture has grown immensely. New journals continue to appear, while olderjournals now carry Marxist analyses as a matter of course, or devote whole special issues to Marxist perspectives. (See sections D. and E. below.) As section A. indicates, we have even begun to spawn our own bibliographical guides, which makes the present one less necessary. This third installment again covers work available in English and is alphabetical within sections. I have cut out the "Sources of Marxist Criticism" section because we are today more and more applying Marxist theory rather than recovering it, but the other headings (B. 20th Century European, and C. Contemporary American Marxist Criticism) remain the same. As in the past, my standard for selection has mainly been self-definition, and I have included whatever criticism called itself Marxist along the everwidening spectrum of today's forms. I would here like to thank Roger Mitchell, the editor of TheMinnesotaReview (on leave in England), for his continuing support of this project. journal abbreviations CE (College English)NLR (New LeftReview) MR (The MinnesotaReview)RT(Radical Teacher) NGC(New German Critique) A.
