Informative but short and not really suitable as the introduction it sells itself as. Refers to criticisms and perspectives as though the reader knows them without introduction or anything and the topics it does introduce are sometimes really hurried. As an obvious consequence of its length, it doesn't cover a huge amount of stuff. Not *bad*, but disappointing in that respect.

Minor problems are the constant use of brackets and whole page information boxes that break up the flow of the text. Not a big deal, but makes reading it tougher.… (more)

It is what is says: a book about the philosophy of Marx, which means only specific aspects of Marx. But pretty good considering the time and place it was written.
