About This Item

New York & London: W. W. Norton & Company, Incorporated, 2000 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 9 1/2 h x 6 1/2w. A real nice clean unmarked (except for a couple library stamps) 431 page first edition hardcover with "1" present in number line. Has a photo section in center and protected with a mylar cover. Paradox and passion were the animating spirits of Karl Marx's life, which often reads like a novel by Laurence Sterne or George Eliot. "Imagine Rousseau, Voltaire, and Hegel fused into one person," said a contemporary, "and you have Dr. Marx." In this stunning book, the first major biography of Marx since the end of the Cold War, Francis Wheen gives us not a socialist ogre but a fascinating, ultimately humane man. Marx's marriage to Jenny von Westphalen, whose devotion was tested by decades of poverty and exile, is as affecting a love story offered by history, while his friendship with Friedrich Engels is by turns hilarious and inspiring. Wheen does not, however, shy away from Marx's work. Was he, as his detractors have claimed, a self-hating Jew?.
