The Political Activism of Karl Marx
By Bob Patenaude

Mention the name Karl Marx and most people will conjure an imagine a
gray long-haired, bearded man hunched over piles of books and papers in
the London Library. This is, of course, an accurate image of much of
what occupied Karl Marx’s life, not only the writing of his masterwork
“Capital” but a body of work which was to become the basis for a global
movement for socialism. Yet Marx was more than just a specter haunting
the reading rooms of the London library. He was also actively engaged in
many of the earliest struggles of the communist movement in which he
played such a vital role.
