1.0 out of 5 stars Total absence of structure!, 26 Aug 2004
This book contains 300 pages of very loosely connected argumentation on the inconistencies and flaws in marxism, both moral issues and other problems. Instead of first presenting the author's interpretation of marxist moral (or rival interpretations as a consequence of the ambiguities in Marx works) and then discuss its problems, he writes about a moral statement and then criticizes it, then move on to the next statement, and so on. The result is fragmented discussions, totally impossible to grasp as a whole. The disposition hardly help the reader. the book contain 10 chapters (a 30 pages), and with no sub-sections.
I am not that well-read in marxism, but even I found at least one mis-quotation (page 13).
It's a shame, since I get the impression (hard to falsify, though...) that the author is very knowledgable on the subject. It is just a matter of writing more clearly...
