DescriptionPeter Singer identifies the central vision that unifies Marx's thought, enabling us to grasp Marx's views as a whole. He sees him as a philosopher primarily concerned with human freedom, rather than as an economist or a social scientist. He explains alienation, historical materialism, the economic theory of Capital, and Marx's ideas of communism, in plain English, and concludes with an assessment of Marx's legacy.

Reviews for Marx: A Very Short Introduction
It is what it says it is.
It is indeed a very short introduction, but nonetheless is a good read. If you are like me and have had trouble deciphering the somewhat elusive and esoteric language of Karl Marx you will find this book to be of great help. It is worth remembering that the book is scarcely over a hundred post card sized pages, and it is not intended to be a comprehensive guide. It explains the ideas of Marx as they emerged and changed throughout the course of his lifetime and also passes comment on how his views have come to manifest in the twentieth century. by Henry Wagner
