The book

Whether you’re an expert on the subject or eager to learn more about the modern world’s most influential political philosopher, you’ll be surprised and fascinated by Musto’s On the Moor’s Trail.

After being expelled by the governments of Germany, France, and Belgium, in 1849 Karl Marx was forced to move to London, where he lived in exile for the rest of his life as a stateless political refugee. After spending a few desperately poor years in Britain, in the mid-1870s Marx started traveling again. The reasons for his visits abroad varied: family matters; delivering the manuscript of Das Kapital to his editor; political meetings; and, to take various cures.

This book tells the stories of those travels, peregrinations, encounters, conversations, and reflections. The portrait of the great philosopher that emerges is very different from the granitic, sphinxlike image memorialized in public squares during the 20th century.
