Overview

This brilliantly concise book is a classic introduction to Marx’s key work, Capital. In print now for over a quarter of a century, and previously translated into many languages, the new edition has been fully revised and updated, making it an ideal modern introduction to one of the most important texts in political economy. The authors cover all central aspects of Marx’s economics. They explain the structure of Marx’s analysis and the meaning of the key categories in Capital, showing the internal coherence of Marx’s approach. Marx’s method and terminology are explored in detail, with supporting examples. Short chapters enable the meaning and significance of Marx’s main concepts to be grasped rapidly, making it a practical text for all students of social science. Discussing Capital’s relevance today, the authors consider Marx’s impact on economics, philosophy, history, politics and other social sciences. Keeping abstract theorizing to a minimum, this readable introduction highlights the continuing relevance of Marx’s ideas in the light of the problems of contemporary capitalism.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This expert guide to the political economy of Marx's Capital has always been the very best available. The fourth edition, welcome in its own right, updates the text in the light of recent scholarship. It is thoroughly recommended not only for beginners but to anyone interested in the applicability of Marxian theory to the parlous condition of contemporary capitalism." —David Harvey, author of Limits to Capital and The Condition of Postmodernity

"For almost thirty years, Marx’s Capital has provided an invaluable introduction to Marx's great work. This fourth edition is much more than an updating of its predecessors: its coverage is more comprehensive and sophisticated and the book provides very useful guides to key debates and further reading. The book is not only of interest to students of Marx — it should be compulsory reading for all serious students of economics." —Professor Simon Clarke, University of Warwick

"Marx's Capital is an admirably clear explanation of complex ideas, which has the rare virtue of saying something important to economists while being accessible to non-specialist readers. It also does a very good job of showing the urgent relevance of Marx's Capital today." —Ellen Meiksins Wood, author of The Empire of Capital (2003) and The Origin of Capitalism (2002)

"The new edition of "Marx's Capital" is definitely the best edition yet. It reflects both current discussions among Marxist economists and developments in the world economy and has no equal as an introduction to Capital for undergraduate students." —Professor Michael A. Lebowitz, Simon Fraser University, Canada
