        This paper discusses the writings of Marx on peasants, and argues that the characterisation of him as ‘against’ the peasant overlooks the central ambivalence in his theory. It considers Marx's relevant writings on Asia, Ancient Greece and Rome, European feudalism, and, more specifically, England, France and Russia, and attempts to account. Downloadable! The whole social and economic life is based on some form of association. People live in societies, so the idea association appeared in the most natural way, at first in an unconscious form, moving later towards the conscious and organized association. Seeing that through the association they were able to defend their professional interests, fulfil their economic goals and meet.
