Product description

Review

Exhaustive and staggeringly well-researched (Oliver Bullough The Observer)

Vast, dense and intellectually formidable (Dominic Sandbrook The Sunday Times)

Rich and deeply researched (John Gray Literary Review)

Superb ... so long as we persist in our tendency to hive off the study of economics from politics, philosophy and journalism, Marx will remain the outstanding example of how to overcome the fragmentation of modern social thought and think about the world as a whole for the sake of its betterment. And this book will be an admirable guide to how he did it. (Financial Times)

An intellectual history of impeccable scholarship... the book is superb... for those interested in Marx's thinking, Stedman Jones's book is a treat (The Telegraph)

There is no better guide to Marx than Gareth Stedman Jones (Economist)

'A deeply original and illuminating account of Marx's journey through the intellectual history of the nineteenth century. Stedman Jones explores the friendships, affinities, rivalries and hatreds that shaped Marx's life with elegance and analytical brilliance. He anchors his narrative in a startlingly textured account of the society and politics of Marx's era.

Most important of all, he brings to life the thoughts of a plethora of other writers, showing how Marx's engagements with the thoughts of others enabled him to navigate a course that often had little or nothing to do with the Marxism of the twentieth century. A profound reappraisal and a gripping read.'

(Christopher Clark (author of The Sleepwalkers))
