How an Idea Changed Everything

Christina Morina

  • The first comprehensive historical work on the origins of Marxism as a political movement
  • Makes a theoretical contribution to the origins and dynamics of political activism and radicalism
  • Grounds the history of Marxism and Marxist politics in a real-life perspective on its major protagonists
  • A fresh look at a topic that has long been overburdened with political and ideological agendas
  • Demonstrates how Marx - or rather a Marxian way to look at the world - remains relevant today
