Example text

That is reason enough for reissuing a book like Karl Marx at the beginning of the twenty-first century. xxxiv BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH Karl Heinrich Marx was born on May 5, 1818, in the Rhenish city of Trier. His father was a successful Jewish lawyer of conservative political sentiments who converted to Christianity in 1824. Although there was a Rabbinic background in his family, Marx was not brought up as a Jew. Probably the deepest influence on Marx in his early youth was his neighbor, Baron Ludwig von Westphalen, a cultured nobleman, a political progressive, and Marx’s future father-in-law.

The first years in England were a time of bitter, brutal poverty for the Marx family. Three of the six children died of want before 1856, and Marx’s own health suffered a decline from which it perhaps never fully recovered. Throughout most of the 1850s, Marx wrote for the New York Tribune at £1 per article. By the end of the decade, inheritances to Jenny Marx and financial help from Engels had relieved the family’s hardships somewhat. The American Civil War brought an end to Marx’s writing for the Tribune and also somewhat curtailed the income from Engels’ textile mills.

Multinational corporations, supported by a system of international treaties designed to promote ‘free trade’ increasingly operate beyond any constraints that could be imposed by even the most formally democratic institutions. The propaganda put out by each side in the Cold War was headlined by the claim that if the other side ever won final victory, the result would be a world historical calamity for the human race. The West won the Cold War chiefly because its claim on this score eventually – and with good reason – came to be almost universally believed.
