"Peter Singer has succeeded in identifying the central vision that unifies Marx's thought. He thus makes it possible, in remarkably few pages, for us to grasp Marx's views as a whole, rather than as an economist or a social scientist. He explains alienation, historical materialism, the economic theory of Capital, and Marx's ideas of communism, in plain English, and concludes with an assessment of Marx's legacy."--BOOK JACKET.
