A must read!
Ms. Gabriel's lively writing style, despite the erudition and vast amounts of research involved, makes for a compelling read unmatched by other biographies of Marx. One is transported into the passionate lives of the Marx family, set against the backdrop of 19th century political upheaval. One of the things I was struck by was how the iconic figure of Marx was actually someone who cared deeply for the welfare of children and working people, and his philosophy, although arcane and at times impenetrable, was a direct result of these concerns. This is really a must read for those of us trying to understand the root causes of our current economic turmoil and the implacable greed that capitalism fosters.
