Product description

The biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression shows no sign of coming to a close and Marx's work remains key in understanding the cycles that lead to recession. For nearly forty years, David Harvey has written and lectured on "Capital," becoming one of the world's most foremost Marx scholars.Based on his recent lectures, and following the success of his companion to the first volume of "Capital," Harvey turns his attention to Volume 2, aiming to bring his depth of learning to a broader audience, guiding first-time readers through a fascinating and hitherto neglected text. Whereas Volume 1 focuses on production, Volume 2 looks at how the circuits of capital, the buying and selling of goods, realize value.This is a must-read for everyone concerned to acquire a fuller understanding of Marx's political economy.
