«Si ese periódico capitalista de Nueva York lo hubiera tratado mejor, si Marx hubiera seguido siendo solo un corresponsal de prensa extranjero, l. a. historia habría podido ser diferente.» J. F. Kennedy
Los artículos periodísticos de Marx constituyen un testimonio clave para comprender el curso social, político y económico del siglo XIX y su legado histórico.
Estos escritos son también fundamentales para aproximarse al pensamiento del filósofo alemán y al paisaje vivo de su época de un modo más didáctico y rítmico, apoyado en los angeles inmediatez de l. a. noticia, l. a. sátira y los angeles crítica más que en l. a. gravedad del tratado. No obstante, los artículos de Marx, por su talento como historiador y economista, distan mucho de ser piezas al uso de un periodista corriente: su conocido rigor y voluntad revolucionaria están siempre presentes.
Es en los periódicos, y no en sus tratados filosóficos, donde Marx se enfrenta de manera directa al presente, a los angeles desigualdad, los angeles violencia y l. a. explotación, y lo hace con inigualable destreza.

En su vasta e influyente obra, se adentró en los campos de los angeles filosofía, l. a. historia, los angeles ciencia política, l. a. sociología y los angeles economía; aunque no restrictó su trabajo solamente al área intelectual, pues además trabajó en el campo del periodismo y l. a. política proponiendo en su pensamiento los angeles unión de los angeles teoría y l. a. práctica. Junto a Friedrich Engels, es el padre del socialismo científico, del comunismo moderno y del marxismo.
Sus escritos más conocidos son el Manifiesto del Partido Comunista (en coautoría con Engels) y El Capital.
