Description

This new Che Guevara book makes an insightful contribution to the revival of interest in Marxism.

Commenting on Marx’s humanism, Che writes: “Such a humane man, whose capacity for affection extended to all those suffering throughout the world, offering a message of committed struggle and indomitable optimism, has been distorted by history and turned into a stone idol.”

A thoughtful and provocative introduction to the lives and work of Marx and Engels by a famous revolutionary practitioner of Marxism, this book includes Che’s recommended reading list of essential Marxist classics, making it a popular choice for students and political activists.
