He only mentions T-B once (I far as I see) among a list of 'legal
Marxists', while mentioning Struve much more often, whom he says was for
the average Russian intellectual (the non-revolutionary) the founder of
Marxism in Russia, not Plekhanov (p. 436).

I wouldn't be prepared yet to say whether or not Sieber has a mechanical
point of view, but you are correct about Marx, if I remember correctly.
