About the Author

Described as one of the most influential figures in human history, Karl Marx was a German philosopher and economist who wrote extensively on the benefits of socialism and the flaws of free-market capitalism. His most notable works, Das Kapital and The Communist Manifesto (the latter of which was co-authored by his collaborator Friedrich Engels), have since become two of history s most important political and economic works. Marxismthe term that has come to define the philosophical school of thought encompassing Marx s ideas about society, politics and economicswas the foundation for the socialist movements of the twentieth century, including Leninism, Stalinism, Trotskyism, and Maoism. Despite the negative reputation associated with some of these movements and with Communism in general, Marx s view of a classless socialist society was a utopian one which did not include the possibility of dictatorship. Greatly influenced by the philosopher G. W. F. Hegel, Marx wrote in radical newspapers from his young adulthood, and can also be credited with founding the philosophy of dialectical materialism. Marx died in London in 1883 at the age of 64.

Friedrich Engels was born in 1820, in the German city of Barmen. He died in London in 1895 while editing the fourth volume of Capital.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not going to review the book as a document. What I am doing here is reviewing this particular edition of the book as a material object. Be advised that this review which could wind up anywhere is of the 300 page Windham Press English Language edition of (June 6, 2013) with ISBN-10: 1628450347. As a material object this book doesn't even deserve one star! This edition is an absolute rip-off. It is nothing more than a photocopied version of what appears to be a much used library book. There are numerous pages with underlining and notes as well as Xs in the columns and starred passages including pages and passages marked on both sides of a single page squiggles through the page numbers and other notations too numerous too mention or describe. These occur throughout leading me to believe that this book was not simply the property of one person but was marked by numerous readers. There are numerous underlined passages consisting of whole sentences and whole paragraphs on pages 21, 29, 30, 33, 38, 40, 41, 73, 74, 77, 111, 112, 114, 213, 214, 268, 270, 272, 274, and 278. If I were to list all the other various marks and their frequency this would simply turn into a list of most pages in the book. It would perhaps be far less laborious to list those few pages where there are absolutely no marks but I will refrain. Obviously, I returned my copy without reading it so I still can't describe it or review the book itself.
