Marx, Engels, and Marxisms,

1. Introduction -- 2. The European Spring, 1848-1851: Marx and Engels versus Tocqueville -- 3. The United States Civil War: Marx versus Mill -- 4. Two Takes on the Russian Revolution of 1905: Lenin versus Weber -- 5. The October Revolution and End of the 'Great War': Lenin versus Wilson -- 6. Conclusion.

Performing a comparative real-time political analysis, Marxism versus Liberalism presents convincing evidence to sustain two similarly audacious claims: firstly, that Karl Marx and Frederick Engels collectively had better democratic credentials than Alexis de Tocqueville and John Stuart Mill; and secondly, that Vladimir Lenin had better democratic credentials than Max Weber and Woodrow Wilson. When the two sets of protagonists are compared and contrasted in how they read and responded to big political events in motion, this book contends that these Marxists proved to be better democrats than the history's most prominent Liberals. Exploring the historical scenarios of The European Spring of 1848, the United States Civil War, the 1905 Russian Revolution, the 1917 Russian Revolution, and the end of World War I, Marxism versus Liberalism carefully tests each claim in order to challenge assumed political wisdom.
