This fresh and timely book argues that we can detach Marx the critic of current society from Marx the prophet of future society, and that he remains the most impressive critic we have of liberal, capitalist, bourgeois society. Wolff connects Marx's main ideas with wider concerns about culture and society while guiding the reader accessibly through Marx's notoriously difficult writings, and reinstates Marx as an important critic of current society, and not just a figure of historical interest. For these reasons, and more, Wolff shows us why Marx still richly deserves to be read.
