This is an auction for MARX FOR BEGINNERS by Rius.

[LENIN FOR BEGINNERS is in a separate auction.]

"A superb little book in a most improbable format….I recommend it unreservedly for anyone who wants the rudiments of Marx from an engaging mentor….Rius on Marx is magnificent. He shows that pictures can amplify ideas, and that simplicity need not forgo subtlety."
- New York Times Book Review

Amazon.com reviews:

"A cartoon book about Marx? Are you sure it’s Karl, not Groucho? How can you summarize the work of Karl Marx in cartoons? It took Rius to do it. He’s put it all in: the origins of Marxist philosophy, history, economics; of capital, labour, the class struggle, socialism. And there’s a biography of "Charlie" Marx besides. Marx for Beginners is accurate, understandable, and very, very funny."

"FIVE STARS!! This book was one of several required readings in a college course I took on the history of socialism. I had to laugh when I first saw the actual book as it looks like a book of cartoons. Don't let the seeming simplicity of the book fool you, though. Rius uses cartoons and tiny bits of comedy in order to make one's introduction to the subject as interesting as possible, and he covers the basics quite well indeed: Marx's philosophy, his economic doctrine, and his concept of historical materialism."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: RIUS is the pseudonym of Eduardo del Rio, the Mexican caricaturist and editorial cartoonist whose innovative work established a new field in comic strips: the political and documentary cartoon-book. He was chosen Best Editorial Cartoonist in Mexico in 1959, and in 1968 he received the Grand Prize of the International Salon of Caricature in Montreal. He currently lives and works in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
