really liked it

marx is like a god in the world of sociology. He was really brilliant and had beautiful ideas, too bad most people are selfish and his ideas have never been put into practice in a positive way. I mean, to go from Marx to Stalin in like 50 years, scary scary!!

Gordon The thing about Marx - from an economic perspective - is that his model of 'economic crises' is still as relevant today as it was in the 1850s. Beauty in simplicity. The communist manifesto is unfairly criticised in some quarters for its absence of detail and intellectual rigour. However, this book was intended as a 'call to arms' and fully embodies the spirits of those times.
