Editorial Reviews

Review

'A work of intense lucidity and concision, the offspring of an effortless command of English and superb analytical skill.' Tribune

'His brilliant book is essential reading.' Alasdair MacIntyre, The Guardian

'Avineri's talent for clear and objective commentary, his effective use of textual citations and an order of treatment well suited to the complexity of doctrine in question help make this a work which deserves to be listed among the very best studies on Marx in any language.' Review of Politics

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By John C. Landon on October 30, 2001
Format: Paperback
There are endless perspetives and their commentaries on Marx, but the extraordinary fact is that Marx is a moving target very difficult to understand. This classic text, also a handy companion and continuation to the author's work on Hegel, claims to rescue Marx from his friends and enemies, and is brave attempt at that, whatever a more radical view of the result might be. The author's doubloon of books, tracing the Hegelian sources of Marx, one on Hegel's theory of the modern state, and Marx's dialectical continuation, makes a useful exercise in reorienting one thinking on this forever important emergent critique of political economy and the basic 'crisis of 1848', which has never gone away.

If one wants to understand Marx's thinking, then this is a great first step in the long journey. This is not a book for a casual reader, nor is it a book for those who do not honestly seek the rigor of Marxism as more than a mere caricature that it has become over the decades; however, if you are not repelled by the previous clauses, buy this book. A great work of scholarship!

I have read some about Marx. This book was a little more understandable and enlightening about his thought. I found it a very good read, and recommend it highly.
