Item description for On Marx by Paula Allman...

On Marx introduces readers to the greatest intellect of the last millennium. Anyone who finds the 21st Century daunting, bewildering even frightening, or conversely, who has been too comfortable with the easy answers proffered by governments and the media, will discover that Marx provides unparalleled understanding and clarity as well as inspiration for engaging collectively in a type of praxis that holds the promise of both self and socio-economic transformation. We all live in the world of global capitalism, and no one has explained better than Marx how capitalism works, how it develops-now and in the future-and the consequences to be expected from the unfolding of its inner contradictions-from the growth of global poverty, the widening gap between the rich and the poor to the proliferation of endless war and environmental destruction. On Marx also enables readers to distinguish between the real genius of Marx 's thought and a range of ideas that have been erroneously attributed to him and which, unfortunately, have clouded many people's judgement of Marx. According to the author, if humanity is to have a chance for hope and ultimately peace and socio-economic justice, we need to open our minds to Marx-to give Marx a chance.

Reviews - What do customers think about On Marx?

Review of Paula Allan's "On Marx"  Jan 28, 2008
In simple and accessible prose, Allman outlines the contemporary importance of Marx in having given us the conceptual tools to understand global capitalism--and to understand its culpability in the production and sustenance of the major problems facing humanity today. Rendering visible the invisible interconnections between economics and politics, Allman forces to the surface the legacy of the relations capitalism has established between people; essentially a competitive and in many ways "feral" relationship where humans have reverted to treating each other as means rather than ends. As she so clearly shows, the logic of capitalism ("thinking") thus creates a specific type of "being" that in turn perpetuates further dehumanised thought and action.

I do not know of a better work--i.e., short, affordable, complex but readable--that captures the central importance of Marx's ideas to our world today. As Allman explains, without minds that can understand the rich legacy of Marx's insights, society will remain imprisoned by its own ignorance. That is why Marx's ideas are revolutionary she argues; they challenge our ideas of who we are.

This book will especially appeal to educators, given the consequences of an omission of these sorts of understandings from our present programmes of study. It could well be said that the future health of our society--if it is to remain truly democratic--depends on works such as this being bought and read.
