Books review of a postmodern biography of Karl Marx. A distinguished
panel of scholars, including Martin Sklar (Bucknell University), Mark Tushnet
(Georgetown Law School), Michael Ledeen (American Enterprise Institute)

thought, which Skidelsky recently described as "the most powerful, coherent
and influential secular system of ideas ever devised to explain man's past,
analyze his present and predict his future."
