Millions have heard of Karl Marx. But how many really know what he stood for?
To his enemies he was a monster, responsible for ideas that led to Stalin's dictatorship in Russia. Even for some of his friends who know this is a lie, he is often seen as a philosopher, most at home in the British Library.
But he was much more than this. Above all else, he was a revolutionary.
Mike Gonzalez's excellent little introduction reveals how Marx's ideas developed out of the great struggles of the nineteenth century for deomcracy and working class liberation. Along the way, Mike suggests Marx still has much to offer our century.
