Book Synopsis



In this stunning book, the first comprehensive biography of Marx since the end of the Cold War, Francis Wheen gives us not a socialist ogre but a fascinating, ultimately humane man, while still examining the criticisms of his detractors. A study in contradictions, Karl Marx was at once a reserved scholar, a fiery agitator, and a gregarious socialite, while his intellect and ideology were once described as Rousseau, Voltaire, and Hegel fused into one person. He lived both at the center and on the fringes of his age, and his oratory and writing continue to change the contemporary world. In his entertaining, offbeat style, Wheen offers an eminently readable biography of one of history's most unforgettable figures. Wheen's portrait of Marx's life is artfully shaped and makes delectable reading.--New York Times A magnificent portrait of Marx.... Bravo!--A. N. Wilson [E]xpertly researched, admirably objective, eminently humane, and plenty entertaining.--Boston Book Review
