Editorial Reviews


'David McLellan's Karl Marx has been the standard English biography of Marx since its publication. The reappearance of this admirably balanced work in a new and updated edition is to be warmly welcomed.' - Eric Hobsbawm, FBA, Emeritus Professor, Birkbeck, University of London, UK

Reviews of the previous edition:

'An authoritative and thorough re-creation of Marx's life and thought - and the interaction between the two...undoubtedly the best one-volume biography of the great man in existence.' - Sunday Times

'It could be said that the biographers have only changed Marx in various ways; the point is to interpret him - and McLellan has filled a very real gap in doing this as fairly as he can...he has produced the most up-to-date, well-informed, reliable and sensible biography so far.' - New Society

About the Author

DAVID MCLELLAN is Professor of Political Theory at Goldsmiths College, London, UK. He has written over 20 books on Marx and Marxism, many of which have been translated into foreign languages. His most recent publications are Simone Weil: Utopian Pessimist and Unto Caesar: The Political Relevance of Christianity.
