Description

Essays by Paul Lafargue

By Paul Lafargue
Contributions by Fred Thompson and Kari Lydersen
AK Press & Charles H. Kerr Publishing

At once a masterpiece of critical theory and rip-roaring radical humor, this is one of the most spirited attacks on the notion of the “work ethic” ever to be published! Featuring a revised edition of the original English translation by Charles Hope Kerr, this collection also includes four of Paul Lafargue’s lesser-known critiques (including the “Cathecism for Investors”), as well as a biographical sketch by longtime Wobbly organizer Fred Thompson and a new introduction by Bay Area print activist Bernard Marszalek. Released in collaboration with Kerr Company to celebrate their 125th anniversary year, and including a tribute to Kerr by labor journalist Kari Lydersen.

Paul Lafargue (1842–1911) was a Cuban-born socialist revolutionary, perhaps most well-known as the charismatic son-in-law of Karl Marx.
