The most comprehensive one-volume collection in English of Marx's early writings from 1835-1847, Writings of the Young Marx on Philosophy and Society ranges broadly in subject, from the nature of religion to freedom of the press and to the relation of the state to democracy, from the humanistic critique of philosophical idealism to the 'alienation' of humanity and to the relation of communism to historical praxis. It features Easton and Guddat's own highly regarded translations (based on the best German editions and on the study of original manuscripts and first editions) and reveals differences as well as continuities between "young" and "old" Marx . A substantial introduction and detailed analytical headnotes indicate the significance and historical setting of each selection, as well as its relationship to Marx's other writings. With one exception (Defense of the Moselle Correspondent) each article, chapter, or book section is presented in its entirety, without internal deletions.
