At the very outset of his learned and lively book about the life, theories, and influence of Karl Marx, the intellectual historian Frank Manuel grants that his initial presumption may be false: the subject of his autopsy may not be dead. Nevertheless, it seems clear that, in the wake of the collapse of Communist regimes in Eastern and Central Europe, Marxism has lost much of its appeal either as substitute religion or as utopian romance.

Karl Marx - Para otros usos del apellido Marx, véase Marx (desambiguación). Karl Amadeus Hartmann - (August 2, 1905 Munich ndash; December 5, 1963 Munich) was a German composer. Some have lauded him as the greatest German symphonist of the 20th century, although he is now largely overlooked, particularly in English speaking countries.
Manuel gives us a psychological portrait rendered with sympathy and critical detachment, a probing look at the connections between the private drama of Marx's life and his revolutionary ideas. Manuel's erudition as an intellectual historian and his self-confessed attitude as a 'skeptical utopian' justify the publication of another book on Marx.

A Requiem for Karl Marx book. Frank Edward Manuel (1910-2000), a former member of the Brandeis History faculty, was a specialist in European utopian philosophy, awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1957, and won the National Book Award for his Utopian Thought in the Western World. This book takes a contrastive stand, comparing Karl Marx, the person, to his socialist beliefs, with some uneven effort to relate his biography to his beliefs. This is certainly not a hagiography.

David Warsh Boston Sunday Globe). provides a searing, genuinely fresh biographical sketch of Marx, the man, the theorist, and the political activist.
As Karl Marx the icon has fallen along with so many communist regimes, we are left with the mystery of Karl Marx the man, the complexities of a life that has profoundly affected millions. A Requiem for Karl Marx is Frank Manuel's searching meditation on that life, a learned and elegantly written engagement with the man and his work.
Manuel gives us a psychological portrait rendered with sympathy and critical detachment, a probing look at the connections between the private drama of Marx's life and his revolutionary ideas. Manuel pursues these connections from Marx's adolescence and education in Trier through his university studies, marriage to a German baroness, and early affiliation with French and German radical groups. Here we see Marx in moments of youthful rapture, in periods of despair, in maneuvers of blatant hypocrisy, in outbursts of self-mockery. We follow his involuted response to his status as a converted Jew, observe the psychic toll of debilitating bouts of illness, and witness the shattering effects of his aggressive, often brutal conduct toward friend and foe alike. Manuel analyzes in intricate detail the central role of Marx's enduring relationship with Friedrich Engels, which appears to transcend the bounds of friendship, and his changing behavior toward his wife, Jenny, the neurotic and tragic figure who shared his dismal London exile.
What becomes clear in this narrative is the link between Marx's personal life and his ideas about class struggle, revolutionary strategy, and utopia--as well as the impact of his personal vision and political tactics on the movements that followed him, down to our day.
