4.0 out of 5 stars A political tretise which everyone interested in the subject should read., 4 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Das Kapital: A Critique of Political Economy (Skeptical Reader Series) (Paperback)
To understand the modern world I think that everyone should at least read Das Kapital, the Koran, the Bible and Mein Kampf. We can only comment upon the state we find the world in by understanding how it got there the, ideas that formed and the minds that shaped it. The book does not disappoint, although the ideas are now dated. The world that Marx inhabited was very different to the one we now live in.

Much of what Marx says is still very relevant today and certainly provides an insight to issues of power and class struggle. Much has changed but the underlying issues remain the same. I would however disagree with the other books that are recommended. The bible and the Koran are sexist and out of date and due to the way that they are collated ( collections of contradictory stories) they are interpreted to mean different things to different people. Hitler died anyway and happily his influence with it. Who really wants to waste their time with the anti Semitic nonsense of a genocidal dictator? All of these books are written by men and confined to particular geographical locations whose cultural and political influences they reflect. Time would be much better spent reading something by Bell Hooks, for example.
