In his controversial, candid and witty book Why Marx was Right, Marxist critic and literary theorist Terry Eagleton takes issue with the prejudice that Marxism is dead and buried. This month sees the paperback publication of Why Marx was Right, so we took the opportunity to speak to Terry about his engaging book.
