Description

"This book makes clear that Marx's ideas, going on two centuries old, still have meaning in the present. Outstanding. [A book] to turn to for reference and deeper insight."
--Kirkus (starred review)

"Neoliberalism is increasingly exposed as a failed experiment and many people are now exploring the tradition of radical politics for solutions to the challenges we now face. This book brings to life the early history of the socialist tradition."
--John McDonnell, MP Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer

"A World to Win is an illuminating investigation into the multiple personalities of this infinitely fascinating figure. There's a strong case to be made that Marx was neither a philosopher nor a scientist. He discovered his own 'ways of seeing' that defied and continue to defy easy categorization."
--Jason Barker, Los Angeles Review of Books
"A lucid, scholarly guide ... Those searching for a truly detailed discussion of Marx should turn here."
--Andrew Stuttaford, Wall Street Journal

"Liedman is convinced that we live in a period of striking similarity to Marx's own, and therefore his analysis of society and history are still appropriate. Unlike many other biographies of Marx, the present volume combines in-depth personality narrative and significant comments on Marx's own works. This analysis not only looks at the social and political context of the early industrial revolution Europe, but also takes into consideration the intellectual environment of the time, German philosophy, and socialist and liberal ideas. Highly recommended."
