Hello,

Can someone explain me what "under the rubric" means here? Thanks!

England, Italy, and Spain present a similar picture, indicating that the pre-capitalist world of the village, which Marx dismissed under the rubric of "rural isolation,"could produce as high a level of struggle as any the industrial proletariat has waged.

    Hello.

    At one time, Marx dismissed "the pre-capitalist world of the village" with a convenient term, "rural isolation". "Rubric" should mean something like "classification". Marx classified or labeled this "world" as an example of "rural isolation."

    Does this answer make sense to you?
