This first book-length study devoted to Marx's perspectives on gender and the family offers a fresh look at this topic in light of 21st century concerns. Although Marx's writings sometimes exhibit sexism, his work often transcends it. Brown studies those writings on gender, as well as his 1879-1882 notebooks on precapitalist societies and gender, some of them still unpublished in any language. This study attempts to fill a significant gap in the literature on Marx and offer some general insights into the intersectionality of gender and class.
