Marx: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Marx: A Very Short Introduction

In Marx: A Very Short Introduction, Peter Singer identifies the central vision that unifies Marx's thought, enabling us to grasp Marx's views as a whole. He sees him as a philosopher primarily concerned with human freedom, rather than as an economist or a social scientist. In plain English, he explains alienation, historical materialism, the economic theory of Capital, and Marx's ideas of communism, and concludes with an assessment of Marx's legacy.

    "Very critical"

    The information is there, but this guy obviously has a bone to pick with Marx. Maybe not the best choice for a simple introduction.

    "Dated & Droning"

    Information is presented by a droning narrator. Conclusions are no longer persuasive -- much has changed since this book was written.
