5.0 out of 5 stars A Humanising look at Charlie Marx, 11 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Karl Marx (Paperback)
Karl Marx has often been described as one of the most evil men ever to have lived. Indeed, there is a book listed on amazon entitled "Was Karl Marx a Satanist?" Responsible for Stalin? For North Korea? This book paints a different picture. What Wheen has done here is to reveal the man behind the monster. From his yearly days at university filled with drinking and youthful discussion on philosophy in smoke filled rooms, to social agitator and someone disgusting by the inhumanity of capitalism and Prussian state dictatorship, and to a loving and doting father and husband in his mature years, Marx Comes across as throughly likable. Whether you are a fascist, a communist, a liberal, a socialist, a conservative or whatever label you attach to yourself, you will love this book. When I first read it, I wished that he were still alive so that we could go for a pint. Oh well, I still have this magnificent biography.
