About This Item

London England: Fourth Estate, 1999. Hardback. First Edition. Karl Marx. Only a dozen mourners attended Karl Marx's funeral in Highgate cemetry, but within a hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism as their guiding faith. Not since Jesus Christ has an obscure pauper achieved such astonishing global influence. It is easy to forget that Marx was also human. Neither his enemies nor his disciples have been willing to admit as much. Karl Marx emerges here as a flamboyantly unmistable individual, not the stony head of a monolithic, faceless organisation. Indeed, rather like Groucho, Karl could hardl bear to be a member of any club that would accept him: he memorably dismissed a new French party that claimed to be Marxist, replying that, in that case, 'I', at least, am not a Marxist'. 431 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books ,and all types of Academic Literature.). First Edition. Cloth. Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo. Hardback.
