This essay, originally published in 1844 as Zur Judenfrage, must be one of Karl Marx's most ignored and suppressed works. Marx, himself of Jewish descent, while answering an essay by fellow Hegelist philosopher Bruno Bauer on the topic of the emancipation of Jews in Prussia, raged polemically against Jewish behavior and culture, asking and answering his own questions this way: "What is the secular basis of Judaism? Practical need, self-interest. What is the worldly cult of the Jews? Huckstering. What is his worldly god? Money! ... What is contained abstractly in the Jewish religion - contempt for theory, for art, for history, for man as an end in himself." This new edition has been completely reset and contains an introduction by Arthur Kemp which outlines Bauer's initial works that sparked Marx's writings, and some further evidence of Marx's racist sentiments toward African people. From the introduction: Given that Jewish Communists went on to establish Communism as an openly-declared world ideology which captured Russia and Eastern Europe for nearly eighty years, and, in the West, as an undeclared form of "socialism" which has now permeated America and Western Europe, Marx's pronouncements on Jewish behavior and race seem out of place-until the staggering hypocrisy of contemporary Jewish behavior is considered. In the USA, for example, organized Jewry in the form of the Anti-Defamation League and other Jewish extremist pressure groups continuously agitate for what they call "civil rights" and open borders for America-but at the same time, fanatically support the Jews-only state of Israel which actively discriminates against Palestinians and has a racially-based immigration policy designed to keep Israel as ethnically pure as possible. This pattern of outright hypocrisy is repeated in all other European nations as well-while taking extensive measures to protect their own identity and actively opposing intermarriage with non-Jews-Jewish organizations and "anti-racist" front organizations lead the way in opposing any European attempts to preserve their identity, even if those Europeans are merely trying to do what the Jews themselves do. It is this hypocrisy and double-standard-of one rule for Jews, another rule for non-Jews-which has been the hallmark of Marxism, dating from the father of Communism himself, Karl Marx. This will become clear as the reader delves into this work.

In the last decades, previously secret documents on Jewish issues emerged from the newly opened Communist archives. Even though current scholarship treats the Shoa frequently as the end of Jewish history in the region, these documents make clear that the communist parties never stopped to be preoccupied with the Jewish question. A selection of these papers sheds new light on the background of the Jewish policy of the Communist bloc countries."

In his most recent philosophical work, one of the modern world’s pre-eminent thinkers offers a summation of his views on a wide range of topics of first and last importance, beginning with abstract art and ending with Zionism. Culled from years of patient research and fruitful introspection, his observations are bound to stimulate, challenge, and at times force upon the reader a shock of recognition grounded on timeless but at times obscured universal truths. Dr. Runes’ word magic, now aphoristic, now cadenced and metaphorical, creates countless gems of wisdom, frequently poetic, often irresistibly quotable, always profoundly moving. A humanitarian theme evolved partly from personal tragedies permeates his lifelong search for “a life of God the Spirit and the Giver/(Of) God unbound and unencumbered/By hate or prejudice/A god to love by Deeds/Not hollow hymns and vows.”
