Synopsis

I feel like I’m one of those people that you talk about whose lives have been adventures in Marxism. I’m fifty years old, and since I spent my life as a construction worker raising a family, I’m at this stage still in college ... Your book was inspiring to me because it reminded me why I made the sacrifices I did to get an education ... the sheer joy of learning about ideas and the hope that education can make some kind of difference. He great thing about your approach to Marx is that you show that theory and the world of ideas can be exciting and intellectually rich, but also relevant to all workers, blue collar or otherwise.—Personal letter to the Author from Scott Smith, construction worker and student (Pittsburgh)
