Karl Marx-Selected Writings in Sociology and Social Philosophy, Editors: Bottomore, T.B./Rubel, Maximilien.
1 Editors: Bottomore, T.B./Rubel, Maximilien. Karl Marx-Selected Writings in Sociology and Social Philosophy
U.K. Penguin (Pelican) Books. 1969 #A563. Fourth Penguin Books Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good Plus. Cover Design: Spain, Alan. 
       $1.15 is the original price. 272 pages which include a short Bibliography and an Index. Light beige paper turning darker. Tight binding.
Front Cover: An indent's where I removed a pricing sticker as it was redundant because the price was on the Back Cover.
In General: The inside of both Covers are turning a light beige, darker at the edges.
Story: Excerpts from Marx's writing. I glanced at some of it but while it might have applied to world conditions then because of the change from Imperialism to Capitalism with more emphasis being placed on the Proletariat I think that he wrote quite a bit which was based on a faulty premise. My opinion, of course. Lord knows that what he wrote caused a lot of harm in the world, much like some of the other ideological "isms" which were also being foisted off on people at the time. 004420

Front Cover: A few indents from holding the book and a slightly darkened area where the price sticker once was.
Spine: A very small tear's at the middle of the Spine. Nothing much.
Back Cover: Five or six small and light indents plus a couple of small brown spots at the bottom of the Cover.
Story: This is an Intellectual book written by a deep Thinker. The book deals with his reflections and thoughts about such mass movements as Isis (Isl), Religions, Political ideas Trump cynically wants to put forward, etc. If you're willing to think, then this is a good book for you. Otherwise, forget it. Don't forget that there has to be a foundation of many ideas in order to start the ideas moving. 004860
