Marx in Context
Since their first collaborative appearance in the mid-1840s, Marx and Engles have become central players in the western intellectual tradition. They have inspired two significant Communist revolutions of the 20th century-the Russian and Chinese.Marx in Context delineates the principal ideas of Marx and Engels as it pertains to such subjects as human exploitation, alienation, the sufferings of the 19 century working class in England and their human condition, imperialism, the women's question and religion.Marx's ideas are discussed in precise detail with other socialist and conservative thinkers, including classical English economist Adam Smith, Thomas Robert Malthus, David Ricardo; anarchists Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Michael Bakunin and Peter Kropotkin; also included are Max Weber, V.I. Lenin, Thorstein Veblen, Vilfredo Pareto, William Graham Sumner, Jean Paul Sartre, Simone Weil, Paul Tillich, Carl Barth, Walter Rauchenbusch, Gustavo Gutierriez, Harry Braverman and other significant thinkers who together help produce the necessary contrast that brings the ideas of Marx and Engels alive.Being the first work to depict the similarities and differences of Marx and Engles with other prominent thinkers, Marx in Contex seeks to reaffirm the purpose behind their vision.
