Publisher Description

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.

    " 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. "

    " A thoughtful and concise overview of Marxist thought. If you'd like to learn about Marxism, don't start with Das Kapital or Theories of Surplus Value, start here. "
