Why Marx was Right

Terry Eagleton.

Once the darling of the intelligentsia, Marxism has been out of fashion for at least a couple of decades. In his new book "Why Marx was Right", philosopher and critic Terry Eagleton makes the case for Marx's resurrection, challenging objections and explaining why his thought remains as relevant as ever.
