By Michael Heinrich; translated by Alexander Locascio

Reviewed for Counterpunch by Louis Proyect

“The first installment of Michael Heinrich’s three-volume biography of Karl Marx is now available from Monthly Review Press. In keeping with MR’s long-time tradition as a movement rather than an academic press, the cloth edition is $34.95 and the eBook is only $19.95. Given the renewed attention to Karl Marx since the financial crisis of 2008, it will help us understand how his life and thought evolved…. ¶ Reading this makes me hunger for volume two of Heinrich’s biography. ”
