Ever since the discovery of Marx's Early Writings, most of the literature concerned with Marx's intellectual development has centred around the so-called gap between the 'young' Marx, who was considered to be a humanist thinker, and the 'older' Marx, who was held to be a determinist with little concern for anything outside his narrow theory of historical materialism. Dr Avineri claims that such a gap between the 'young' and 'older' Marx did not exist. He supports his claim by a detailed study of the whole corpus of Marx's writing on social and political thought.

Industry Reviews

'A work of intense lucidity and concision, the offspring of an effortless command of English and superb analytical skill.' Tribune 'His brilliant book is essential reading.' Alasdair MacIntyre, The Guardian 'Avineri's talent for clear and objective commentary, his effective use of textual citations and an order of treatment well suited to the complexity of doctrine in question help make this a work which deserves to be listed among the very best studies on Marx in any language.'
