Why Read Marx Today?

Jonathan Wolff

  • This fresh, provocative, and hugely enjoyable book explains why, for all his shortcomings, his critique of modern society remains forcefully relevant even in the twenty-first century. Francis Wheen, author of Karl Marx
  • Connects Marx's main ideas with wider concerns about culture and society
  • Guides the reader accessibly through Marx's notoriously difficult writings
  • Reinstates Marx as an important critic of current society, and not just a figure of historical interest
