This is lacking a little in depth, with most of the selections coming in under a page or two, but, still, this makes for a very fast read and the breadth and quantity of selections from across Marx's work makes this a very accessible and comprehensive (if a bit bullet-point-y) introduction to his thought.

The Introduction was quite good. Its odd reading though. Short Selections from across a range of texts wherever Marx touches on particular topics, grouped by topic area.

It serves well as a means of comparing what Marx wrote on say "Alienation" in the German Ideology versus Capital Vol I or other texts. But otherwise I"m not sure its a worthwhile place to start with Marx or of much purpose.

In 1818, Karl Marx, descended from a long line of rabbis, was born in Prussian Rhineland. Marx's' father converted to Protestantism shortly before Karl's birth.
