Publisher's Summary

Written to commemorate the centenary of Karl Marx’s birth, Max Beer, an Austrian historian of the socialist and Marxist movements, presents a clear, detailed and highly accessible work: the first half comprises a biography, full of fascinating quotations and insightful observations whilst the second analyses many aspects of Marx’s historical and economic teachings, with useful exemplars. Furthermore, Beer gives a comprehensive description of Hegel’s dialectical method, vital to an understanding of Marxism, and explores Marx’s attitudes to the ‘Dictatorship of the Proletariat’ and Bolshevism in action. The Life and Teaching of Karl Marx was translated by T.C. Partington and H.J. Stenning. It is read by Greg Wagland.

Mechanical narration

The narrator was not really engaging, the reading sounded quite like a, slightly boring, school book.
