Publisher Comments:

This second edition of McLellan's comprehensive selection of Marx's writings includes carefully selected extracts from the whole range of Marx's political, philosophical, and economic thought. Each section of the book deals with a different period of Marx's life, allowing readers to trace the development of his thought from his early years as a student and political journalist in Germany up through the final letters he wrote in the early 1880s. A fully updated editorial introduction and bibliography has been included for each extract in this new edition.

About the Author

David McLellan is Professor of Political Theory at the University of Kent. He has written and edited numerous works on Marx and Marxism, including Marxism: Essential Writings, also published by Oxford University Press.
