9781462874316: Karl Marx Prince of Darkness

If Marx in his famous quip called religion the opium of the people, opium was the religion of Marx (see page 28 of the book).

Amid some 20,000 titles on Marx, this ranks as one of the most comprehensive and subversive studies of him. The reader learns for the first time here that:

*This father of communism, idolized today as a beacon of light, was in truth a drug addict intent on stripping us all of civic freedoms and, still worse, corralling us into labor camps as “superficial bourgeois riff-raff”.

*In contrast, his close friend Friedrich Engels imagined communism as a higher stage of civilization, and his views have mistakenly become associated with Marx. 

*Behind the façade of unity, Marx and Engels feuded over the goals, strategy, and tactics of communism.  This conflict marred The Communist Manifesto and Capital, warranting their fundamental reinterpretation.

*Engels initiated an astonishing image makeover that eventually transformed Marx the self-appointed gravedigger of civil society into its savior.

Apart from challenges to serious students of Marx and Marxism, the book also offers intersecting human-touch stories of his dark self, his family, friends and contemporaries.

About the Author:

George Fabian is an investigative historian, lecturer, and writer.  A graduate cum laude of Charles University in Prague, he received multidisciplinary instruction that included all facets of Marxism and the art of critical reading and interpretation of documents. Subsequently he pursued advanced education and research in Germany, the United States, and Canada. Coming of age, he has honed his analytical skills as military intelligence specialist, archivist, crusading journalist, businessman, commodity trader, and university professor lecturing in modern European history. Karl Marx Prince of Darkness is his first book in English, the product of nine years of research and writing. His current projects include a study on the life and work of Franz Kafka as well as a sequel to Marx, on Lenin and the infancy of 20th century communism.
