Elster's book serves as a poor introduction to Marx's thought for several reasons. First, Elster doesn't lay out Marx's specific doctrines in much detail, leaving the reader with a mere impression instead of an understanding of the theories involved. But Elster right from the start lays out his point of view (methodological individualism, rational choice theory et., and I find no claim to dispassionate objectivity. It has the necessary caveats, and it is an erudite analysis.
An Introduction to Karl Marx is a 1986 book about Karl Marx by the social and political theorist Jon Elster. It is a much shorter version (about one-fourth in length) of Elster's Making Sense of Marx, published a year earlier.
A concise and comprehensive introduction to Marx's social, political and economic thought for the beginning student. Jon Elster surveys in turn each of the main themes of marxist thought: methodology, alienation, economics, exploitation, historical materialism, classes, politics, and ideology; in a final chapter he assesses 'what is living and what is dead in the philosophy of Marx'. The emphasis throughout is on the analytical structure of Marx's arguments and the approach is at once sympathetic, undogmatic, and rigorous.

Feb 15, 2016 Dawn Matarese rated it it was ok. I'll admit I didn't finish reading this book. This book is pretty good for someone who want to learn about Marx theories.

He is also a notable proponent of analytical Marxism, and a critic of neoclassical economics and public choice theory, largely on behavioral and psychological grounds.
