The book

The portrait of the modern world’s most influential political philosopher that emerges in this book is very different from the granitic, sphinx-like image memorialized in public squares during the 20th century. After spending some desperately poor years in Britain, in the mid-1870s Marx started traveling again. Travels with Marx tells the stories of those travels, peregrinations, encounters, conversations, and reflections. Bringing readers closer to the man who was Karl Marx is also an invitation to revisit his philosophical ideas.


Praise

“Musto showcases Marx’s revolutionary ‘political talent’ and activity in a refreshing and enjoyable way.”—Paul Elias, marxandphilosophy.org
