Gareth’s new book, KARL MARX: GREATNESS AND ILLUSION will be a seminal biography of the most important figure of nineteenth century politics. This remarkable new book allows the reader to understand the development of Marx like no other work before it. It is an intellectual biography which makes sense of the devastating impact of the new ways of seeing the world conjured up by Kant, Hegel, Feuerbach, Saint-Simon and others, and how these were adapted and transformed by Marx. Moreover, this biography will place Marx firmly in the context of the period and explain how the ideas of one man came to transform the political landscape of both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
