The paper examines the book "Karl Marx", a comprehensive study of Marx's life and the creation of Marxist thought. The paper discusses the author's belief that Marx was one of the nineteenth century's greatest philosophers. The paper concludes that Marx was a revolutionary of his time and his ideas, although often dismissed, are still controversial and thought-provoking today.
From the Paper:"The biographical information on Marx' life is a very small percentage of this volume, but it does give the reader a good idea of his background and early education that led to the development of his ideas and philosophies. His expulsion from both Paris and Germany led to his settlement in London, where he did the bulk of his work."
"Marx helped found the International Working Men's Association in 1864, which helped spread the ideals of socialism and anti-capitalism. Eventually these ideas spread around the world and led to the formation of labor unions in many areas, including the United States. They also led to the rise of socialist mentality in Russia, leading eventually to the formation of the Soviet Union and the overthrow of the royal family."
