Is the Grand Old Man re-emerging? More than twenty years after the collapse of Communism, and in the midst of the crisis of Capitalism, Karl Marx's ideas, at least in part, are back in vogue. He is often invoked, yet often misunderstood. In this award-winning biography Rolf Hosfeld oi--ers a new, transparent, and critical view of Marx's turbulent life. Linking the contradictory politician and revolutionary to his work-his errors and misjudgments as wellas his pioneering ideas-Hosfeld presents a vivid account of Marx's life between Trier and London. At the same time, he renders accessible Marx's complex work, one of the world's most important contributions to the history of ideas.

Recensioner i media

Praise for the German edition: "A brilliant work, part biography, part introduction, ideal for a wider readership: accessible and informed, intriguing and reflective." * Die Zeit "This wise Marx book is a fascinating biography of ideas that above all convinces through its insightful philosophical and historical contexts - an elegant volume." * Die Welt "Hosfeld offers a fresh view of Marx' theory, free of ideological or political blinders. A clear-sighted and well-informed account." * Frankfurter Rundschau "This book is a delightful gain: biography, theory, revolutionary history, modern history - altogether convincing and gripping. The lively portrait of a brilliant, eternally radical, and strictly speaking rather apolitical, philosopher is illustrated here by Rolf Hosfeld - A great achievement." * DeutschlandRadio
