Hitchens on Marx as a Journalist.


I would recommend a first rate article by Christopher Hitchens which was recently published in the Guardian, entitled ‘The Grub Street Years’ it looks at Karl Marx’s work as a journalist. Whilst like many others on the left, I was appalled at Hitchens stance over the US/UK invasion and occupation of Iraq, he still has a very fine pen. The piece can be found here,

    Yep, I’d still rate Hitchens as a writer and as a thinker, despite Iraq.
