Overview

Capital Volume One is essential reading on many undergraduate courses, but the structure and style of the book can be confusing for students and general readers leading them to abandon the text. This book is a clear guide to reading Marx's classic text, which explains the reasoning behind the book's structure and provides help with the more technical aspects that non-economists may find taxing.

Readers are urged to think for themselves even as they are shown how to engage with Marx's powerful methods of argument and explanation. Shapiro shows that Capital is key to understanding critical theory and modern culture. This highly focused book will prove invaluable to students of politics, cultural studies and literary theory.
