If you're studying Marx as an undergraduate, I think this is a really good edition to have. All the important bits are in here, with useful contextual notes; perhaps most importantly, it's not cumbersome or daunting.

I urge every one to read Karl Marx; even if you don't subscribe to his views. Well, I urge every one to at least read a little bit. He just might change your perspective on life.

Maybe we should just save time and assign it to every precocious college freshman. And print the thing in a better font while we're at it.

Thorough but sometimes turgid sampling by honest Marxist Scholar Robert Tucker.

I rate the book this highly, not because I agree with Marx, which on the whole I do not, but because I think tUcker as editor has done a good job of introducing and selecting passahes from marx. Tucker certainly explained Marx's relationshjip

Read it for the philosophical manuscripts, for the young Marx.
