In this combative, controversial book, Terry Eagleton takes issue with the prejudice that Marxism is dead and done with. Taking ten of the most common objections to Marxism - that it leads to political tyranny, that it reduces everything to the economic, that it is a form of historical determinism, and so on - he demonstrates in each case what a woeful travesty of Marx's own thought these assumptions are. In a world in which capitalism has been shaken to its roots by some major crises, "Why Marx Was Right" is as urgent and timely as it is brave and candid. Written with Eagleton's familiar wit, humour and clarity, it will attract an audience far beyond the confines of academia. (Verlagstext)
"[...] For Marx this meant workers organizing into a mass movement based on their interests and building a powerful revolutionary workers’ party. Only by overthrowing the current late, decadent state of capitalism can humanity hope to find a way out of our current impasse. With capitalism’s hunger for exponential growth and unlimited profits realized through the exploitation of Earth’s finite resources, the need for a revolutionary course of action is essential. Eagleton’s book provides a wonderful primer on the thought of Karl Marx. Eagleton encourages us to read Marx in light of this brilliant man’s deeply held humanism while providing hints at a way forward." (Quelle: ; die vollständie Rezension finden Sie ).
"Reading a book by Terry Eagleton is like watching fireworks. . . . The list of Marxism's shortcomings is common coinage, and Eagleton offers convincing counterarguments."—Dennis O'Brien, Christian Century (Dennis O'Brien The Christian Century )
"A lively defense. . . . Eagleton offers a richer, more complex and nuanced picture of the father of modern socialism. . . . Throughout, the author is witty, entertaining, and incisive."—Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly )
"Professor Eagleton covers the spectrum of critiques of Marxian ideas like only an actual critic of Marx could. As such, most of the rebuttals to these critiques are well contrived and incredibly sharp."—Greg Linster, Bookslut (Greg Linster Bookslut )
