    DescriptionIn this combative, controversial book, Terry Eagleton takes issue with the prejudice that Marxism is dead and done with. Taking ten of the most common objections to Marxism - that it leads to political tyranny, that it reduces everything to the economic, that it is a form of historical determinism, and so on - he demonstrates in each case what a woeful travesty of Marx's own thought these assumptions are. In a world in which capitalism has been shaken to its roots by some major crises, "Why Marx Was Right" is as urgent and timely as it is brave and candid. Written with Eagleton's familiar wit, humour and clarity, it will attract an audience far beyond the confines of academia.

    Review quote
    "An excellent book" (Owen Hatherley, The Guardian) "A short, witty, and highly accessible jaunt through Marx's thought in preparation for the second coming." (Frank Barry, Irish Times) "Not so much a good read as a romp, this is an irresistibly lively, and thought-provoking essay." (Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman) "Why Marx Was Right is no abstract argumentation but an eloquent, fact-based rebuttal of the usual criticisms of Marxism." (John Green, Morning Star) "This is a wonderful book that every socialist should have on their bookshelves." (Gareth Jenkins, Socialist Worker)"
