"A cleverly imagined call to reconsider socialist theory... Zinn's point is well made; his passion for history melds with his political vigor to make this a memorable effort and a lucid primer for readers desiring a succinct, dramatized review of Marxism."-Publishers Weekly
"Even in heaven it seems, Karl Marx is a troublemaker. But in the deft and loving hands of activist/author/historian Howard Zinn, the historical figure... is also a father, a husband and a futurist possessing a grand sense of humor."-ForeWord
"A witty delight that will engage both new and old acquaintances of the Marxian corpus.... Even conservatives will find Zinn's [book]... an intelligent and diverting read. Recommended for academic and public libraries alike."-Library Journal

Marx in SoHo is a great introduction to Marxism and who Marx was. Zinn's portrayal of the often criticized figure is suberb, and he brings life to Marx's past and what his true philosophy of Communism was. It dispels many ideas that people have, for example, thinking that there ever was a truly Communist country. This book is filled with wonderful, almost lyrical writing and has an amazing point to our overall lives. Brilliant.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
