MARX'S DAS KAPITAL Books That Changed the World

by | Read by Simon Vance

History • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1867

The titles that make up the Books That Changed the World series might be called "librographies," since they tell the life story of history's most influential tomes. Karl Marx's DAS KAPITAL, like other books in the series, may have been read by relatively few, but many of its disciples have had wide influence. British narrator Simon Vance has an appropriately erudite tone for this material. It says something about the impenetrability of Marx's masterwork that even the brief summary is boring, but the later sections on how the book influenced revolutionaries (especially in Russia) is far more interesting and relevant for modern listeners. Vance's warm voice and steady pacing help listeners follow what can be a difficult text. D.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
