Derek Howl: The legacy of Hal Draper (nr.52, efterår 1991, s.137-149)

Steve Wright: Hal Draper’s Marxism (nr.47, sommer 1990, s.157-189)
“It is certain that Hal Draper would have liked to be remebered for having helped build a succesful revolutionary party. Objective circumstances made this tremendously difficult. The books Draper has written on Marx’s ideas will long outlive him. They are vastly superior to the academic alternatives. But the exegesis contained in them cannot remain unflawd by the theoretical standpoint of the author.”
