Summary: IN THIS stunning book, the first comprehensive biography of Marx since the end of the Cold War, Francis Wheen gives us not a socialist ogre but a fascinating, ultimately humane man, while still examining the criticisms of his detractors. A study in contradictions, Karl Marx was at once a reserved scholar, a fiery agitator, & a gregarious socialite, while his intellect & ideology were once described as ''Rousseau, Voltaire, & Hegel fused into one person.'' He lived both at the center
& on the fringes of his age, & his oratory & writing continue to change the contemporary world. In his entertaining, offbeat style, Wheen offers an eminently readable biography of one of history's most unforgettable figures. ''Wheen's portrait of Marx's life is artfully shaped & makes delectable reading.''--New York Times. ''A magnificent portrait of Marx.... Bravo!''--A. N. Wilson. ''Karl Marx: A Life is expertly researched, admirably objective, eminently humane, & plenty entertaining.''--Boston Book Review.
