A nice introduction to Marx's thought that helped me to understand how some of his different works related to each other. Dennison stayed true to his goal of laying out Marx's understanding of history as found in the sources (at least as far as I could tell) before coming to his critical chapter at the end. I also got a deeper understanding of Marx's idea of the alienation of the product of labor from the laborer, and like Dennison I don't see what guarantee Marx could make that alienation wouldn't happen all over again even once history reached the ideal communist stage.
