“If Marx in his famous quip called religion the opium of the people, opium was the religion of Marx” (see page XXX inside). This fact-driven, iconoclastic biography identifies Marx as an archetypal Romantic ensnared by drugs and examines the impact of his addiction on his life and work. Apart from startling findings about Marx’s private affairs, the reader is offered a substantially revised and streamlined interpretation of the core issues of his ideology, politics and economics culminating in Capital. Posting challenges for serious students of Marx and Marxism to reckon with, the book also proffers authentic, compelling human stories of interest to any history buff.
