Reception


The political scientist David McLellan writes that Karl Marx: The Story of His Life is the "classical biography of Marx", adding that it is now "slightly hagiographical" and out of date.[2] In 1953 Louis Althusser wrote that it is the "most comprehensive and interesting historical study of Marx".[4]
