An excellent introduction to Marx

A solid primer for Marx's later works. It's important to see how his ideas began and then evolved over time. For me, this was far more readable than Kapital in either print or audio. The narration was excellent, and I suspect that is why it was so digestible. The narrator for the main 3 volumes of Das Kapital on Audible makes the text even more of dense, turgid slog than it already is.
