Summary

In Marx: A Very Short Introduction, Peter Singer identifies the central vision that unifies Marx's thought, enabling us to grasp Marx's views as a whole. He sees him as a philosopher primarily concerned with human freedom, rather than as an economist or a social scientist. In plain English, he explains alienation, historical materialism, the economic theory of Capital, and Marx's ideas of communism, and concludes with an assessment of Marx's legacy.

Cogent introduction

Singer writes clearly. Biographical sketch, then influences and metaphysical framework (Hegelianism, materialism via Feuerbach) and describes Marx's alienation, then the history and economic theory. Singer squints at the Hegelian stuff, moans over the lack of concrete and actionable descriptions of communism, and dismisses the materialism as hopelessly vague and overstated, but ultimately praises Marx's criticism of capitalism. Some references to subsequent manifestations of communism.

A perfect summary and great collaboration of Marxs life and work, and application to real life societies.
