Sven-Eric Liedman joins us to discuss his new book, A World to Win: The Life and Works of Karl Marx, published on the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birth. In this essential new biography — the first to give equal weight to both the work and life of Karl Marx — Liedman expertly navigates the imposing, complex personality of his subject through the turbulent passages of global history. A World to Win follows Marx through childhood and student days, a difficult and sometimes tragic family life, his far-sighted journalism, and his enduring friendship and intellectual partnership with Friedrich Engels.
Following the discussion, copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
