An Unfinished Revolution reviewed in Against the Current

Rebecca Nathanson20 July 2012

Derrick Morrison reviewed An Unfinished Revolution, Robin Blackburn's latest book on the Civil War's impact on Marx and Marx's impact on America, in Solidarity's Against the Current. Calling the book "a good read and an extraordinary handbook on the Civil War," Morrison analyzes Blackburn's account of the relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Karl Marx and of how "a war to 'preserve the Union,' a war to defend the Constitution, became a war for revolutionary democracy, a war to overturn the system of chattel slavery."
