Without this book, KARL MARX: SELECTED WRITINGS, there is no way of understanding Marx in this age of propaganda coming from both sides of the political spectrum.

Karl Marx (German: ; 5 May 1818 – 14 March 1883) was a German philosopher, economist, historian, sociologist, political theorist, journalist and socialist revolutionary. Born in Trier, Germany, Marx studied law and philosophy at university. He married Jenny von Westphalen in 1843.

Selected Writings book. Selected Writings ~ Karl Marx (On the Jewish Question, Alienation of Labor, The German Ideology) A philosophical inversion of Hegel, very interesting and also depressing: I am a wage-slave, a cog in the wheel of society. There is still much that is true here. As I read this time around, I reflected on how the historical conditions at the time that Marx was writing were such that, had there been no Marx, the subsequent clash was nevertheless inevitable.

Karl Heinrich Marx was one of nine children born to Heinrich and Henrietta Marx in Trier, Prussia. His father was a successful lawyer who revered Kant and Voltaire, and was a passionate activist for Prussian reform. Although both parents were Jewish with rabbinical ancestry, Karl’s father converted to Christianity in 1816 at the age of 35. This was likely a professional concession in response to an 1815 law banning Jews from high society. Later that year, Marx moved to Belgium after being expelled from France while writing for another radical newspaper, Vorwärts!, which had strong ties to an organization that would later become the Communist League.

The other reviews posted here appear to be reviews of an anthology of Marx, perhaps having the same name. This book is a reissue of 'The Living Thoughts of Karl Marx' first published in 1939. It is not an anthology, but is an abridgement of Capital: Volume 1: A Critique of Political Economy (Penguin Classics), introduced by Leon Trotsky, with most of the editing done by Otto Ruehle.

Ruehle was a biographer of Marx and a former member of the German Reichstag who, along with Karl Liebknecht voted against war in 1914-15. He was a member of the "Dewey Commission" which found Trotsky not guilty of the charges leveled against him in the Moscow Trial.

I recommend this as the best introduction to Capital, or as a good refresher course if you've already read it. Another useful book is An Introduction to Marxist Economic Theory. Other essential reading by Marx (with Engels) is The Communist Manifesto, this edition having an introduction by Trotsky. One should be sure to read Marx and Engels writings on the American Civil War: The Civil War in the United States. And don't miss The Civil War in France.

The most important books by Trotsky are History of the Russian Revolution,The Revolution Betrayed, and My Life: An Attempt at an Autobiography.
It's great reading for those wishing to know more about Marx. Please note that my review has more to do with the selection of Marx's work, rather than the content of the ideology. This is perfect for anyone wanting to know more about a huge historical figure, or any student doing a body of research.
Leon Trotsky's review made Marx a lot more readable because I understood going in what Marx was elucidating. I'd recommend that ANYONE who wants to get a grasp on today's economics read at least the Trotsky review. Written in the late 30's but as relevant today as if if had been penned yesterday.
Some reviews on here refer to this book, "Selected Essays" as a collection of essays from Marx's Capital, with an intro by Trotsky. The free Kindle edition is however a collection of Marx's early essays: A Criticism of the Hegelian Philosophy of Right; On the Jewish Question; On the King of Prussia and Social Reform; Moralising Criticism and Critical Morality: Against Karl Heinzen; Proudhon; French Materialism; The English Revolution.
Bought it for school. Actually really enjoyed it
Just thought I would post a much-needed table of contents to inform those curious. This e-volume contains:

Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right
On the Jewish Question
On the King of Prussia and Social Reform
Moralizing Criticism and Critical Morality: A Polemic Against Karl Heinzen
French Materialism
The English Revolution

The translation is not good at all, but at least it has a linkable ToC
An extremely useful way to begin your journey into the immense body of Marx's work.
