I have read that book. The most interesting parts of the book are those that 
discuss Marx's Jewish background. Avineri does provide interesting information 
concerning the Jewish community in Trier. The weakest aspect of the book, is 
that Avineri, much like in his earlier book, from a half century ago, The 
Social & Political Thought of Karl Marx, insists on presenting Marx as being 
much like a contemporary European social democrat. In contrast with the 
revisionist, Eduard Bernstein (who had been a protege of Friedrich Engels),  
Avineri has never seemed to grasp that Marx had a Bolshevik streak to him, as 
Bernstein once confessed to Sidney Hook.
