Marxism is a term that many people freely use, but few seem to grasp its implications. Sowell’s book is the antidote to this problem. He writes in a fluid and easy-to-follow manner, leading the listener through the Marxian scheme of ideas. Along the way, he shatters some existing interpretations of Marx-interpretations that have developed through repetition rather than through scholarship.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bur | 3/2/2017

    " This erudite book is a detailed presentation of Marxism. The economic and political roots of Marxist theory are explored and attempts to make them work in reality. If you are looking for a book to provide more than surface definition of Marxism, this is it. Sowell's reputation precedes itself and I knew before I listened that it would be well done. Highly recommended. "
