The Right to be Lazy and Other Studies by Paul Lafargue

This week’s book is a translation of some essays by Paul Lafargue, whose work prompted Karl Marx to write to a friend, “I am not a Marxist”. Lafargue was also Marx’s son-in-law, and the essay “The Right to be Lazy” is probably the work he is best known for today.
