Understanding the decline of a mode of production (I)

An editor’s note

This is the first part of Link’s response to the extensive reply “In Defense of Historical Materialism” by C.Mcl., More specifically, it replies on questions treated in the latter’s Chapters 1-5, that are currently available in English here:

Part I (Preface by the author; Chapters 1 – 4) 

Part II (Chapter 5) 

The response has been proofread and corrected with the author.
