5.0 out of 5 stars Gem of a Book, Author’s Synthesis is Priceless, March 6, 2015
I picked this up at Powell’s Bookstore in Portland (10 times bigger than Tattered Cover in Denver, both worth going out of your way to visit) and it is a GEM of a book in two ways: the author provides a summary overview of Marxism that is hugely beneficial to anyone looking for a sound critique of capitalism as we know it today; and the author has selected a few pieces by Marx to be read in the original.
Peter Linebaugh’s Stop, Thief!: The Commons, Enclosures, and Resistance (Spectre) is what forced me to reconsider Marx’s critique of capitalism and I recommend that 2014 publication to anyone who wishes to think critically about capitalism today, with this book as a very fine follow-on.
