This is the only guide to Marx that the student and scholar will need. This is an excellent introduction to Marx's thought from a major French philosopher. Providing a lucid, succinct, and accessible introduction to Marx and his key followers, complete with pedagogical information for the student, Balibar makes the most difficult areas of theory easy to understand. Balibar examines all the key areas of Marx's writings in their wider historical and theoretical context including the concepts of class struggle, ideology, humanism, progress, determinism, commodity fetishism, and the state. Suitable for the student and scholar in the humanities and social sciences, this will become the standard guide to Marx.

Etienne Balibar is currently Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris-X. He is the author of Reading Capital (with Louis Althusser), Race Nation Class (with Immanuel Wallerstein), Spinoza and Politics, Masses, Classes and Ideas and Politics and the Other Scene.
