This is an open ended question in that it doesn't require you to refer to particular sources or concepts.

If you Google something like "marxism academic journal" you will probably be presented with a lot of academic texts that you can refer to. You could also Google something like "marxism dissertation" and look at some reference lists to get you started with.

To get an overall understanding of Marxist theory first use Haralambos & Holborn (but dont use it in your essay; it's an A level text). Then read the concepts in more detail (Marx's original writing should be in your library e.g. The Communist Manifesto). Perhaps cover capitalism vs communism, bourgeoisie vs proletariat, exploitation, false class consciousness, polarisation and social change as a basis plus anything else you find.
Best of luck!
