A Very Comprehensive Introduction,
This review is from: The Marx-Engels Reader (Second Edition) (Paperback)
I highly recommend this for anyone, although it should prove especially invaluable to students of many disciplines. Marx's work continues to be a great resource for political economists, literary theorists, men and women all over the world who want to better understand their lives and how to change them. The previous reviewer appears to have never read, or even opened, this book. Not to say everyone will agree with Marx, but it's important to engage with his ideas, to challenge them; instead, the reviewer makes ill-founded judgments based on a poor historical understanding of the socialist states. I highly suggest this book as an introduction to a key figure in the motivating forces of the twentieth century, and in the future.
