It combines readability with intellectual rigour and distils more than a quarter of a century of Thomas Sowells research and thought on the philosophical and economic doctrines of Karl Marx.Its central theme is that Marxian philosophy must be understood before Marxian economics can be defined. The book discusses Marxs ideas, including his philosophy of history, concept of capitalist exploitation, morality and business cycle theory. The authors treatment is balanced, though often critical and displays a mastery of Marxs own writings which are liberally extracted throughout the text.
