Ends in Sight
Gregory Elliott argues that Marx is central to all three accounts and that, along with the Manifesto, they form a quartet of analyses of the results and prospects of capitalism and socialism, which are of enduring significance for the Left.
This book provides a readable survey of key historical and political thinkers that will appeal to anyone interested in modern political thought.
Gregory Elliott is a Visiting Fellow at Newcastle University. His books include Hobsbawm: History and Politics (Pluto, 2010), Ends in Sight (Pluto, 2008), Perry Anderson: The Merciless Laboratory of History (1998) and Althusser: The Detour of Theory (2006).
