    Review quote
    "In a field not noted for lucid exposition, John Seed brings Marx's thought to life in a beautifully written text which puts us back in touch with one of the formative thinkers of the modern world. It is not only a guide for the perplexed, but a significant contribution to the study of Marx." - John Tosh, Roehampton University, UK
