Published by South End Press

In this witty ad brilliant Play on History, renowned historian Howard Zinn brings Karl Marx to life to defend his ideas and comment on the world today

Howard Zinn, author of the best-selling A People's History of the United States and respected veteran of the civil rights and anti-war movements, brings the ideas of Karl Marx to life in this witty and brilliant Play on History

Combining his vast knowledge of political philosophy and history with a vibrant sense of humor and irony, Zinn vividly explores the relevance of Marx's ideas for contemporary society

Through Marx's own voice, Zinn brings this larger-than-life personality down to earth, imaginatively recounting the important influences on his thinking, crafting a moving portrait of his family life in London, and providing a provocative and practical exposition of his ideas, still urgently vital today

Marx in Soho deserves to be widely read, both for its ideas and for the sheer pleasure of its style. Truly a match made in political heaven, Zinn's creative collaboration with Marx's thought will thoroughly engage its readers' minds and passions

The book includes an afterword by Zinn and an annotated bibliography for those interested in finding out more about Marx's life, ideas, and influence
