I thought Collier's books on socialist reasoning and critical realism
were excellent; haven't read this one yet.

"Andrew Collier's text not only introduces the reader to Marx the
revolutionary, but also redefines him as one of the first truly
democratic thinkers. Collier covers all the elements of Marxist
thought, from the early writings to such major texts as Capital and
the key themes of labour and society. Punctuating his study with a
wide range of examples, from Aristotelian thought to Thatcherite
policy, he explores the traditional notion of Marx the activist,
while probing the apparent inconsistencies in his work and reclaiming
him as a philosopher and political theorist." Concluding with an
assessment of Marx's pervasive influence on the political landscape
of the twenty-first century, Collier's study highlights our own
global inequalities and will be welcomed by students, scholars and
activists from a variety of backgrounds.
