Frank Edward Manuel (1910-2000), a former member of the Brandeis History faculty, was a specialist in European utopian philosophy, awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1957, and won the National Book Award for his Utopian Thought in the Western World. This book takes a contrastive stand, comparing Karl Marx, the person, to his socialist beliefs, with some uneven effort to relate his biography to his beliefs. This is certainly not a hagiography.
