Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, this event can no longer go ahead. We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Karl Marx was one of the most influential and revolutionary thinkers of modern history; yet he is rarely thought of as a Jewish thinker. His Jewish background is either overlooked or misrepresented and his attitude towards Judaism and Jews was highly complex.

Shlomo Avineri, in this revelatory work, argues that Marx’s Jewish origins were integral to his work, placing his Jewish background in its proper and balanced perspective. The results are sometimes surprising.

Shlomo Avineri is professor emeritus of political science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a member of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. He is the author of The Social and Political Thought of Karl Marx.

David Pryce-Jones was born in Vienna. He is the author of many fiction and non-fiction books. He is a Senior Editor of National Review.

In Association with the Anglo-Israel Association.
