Product description

This major new textbook from the premier Marxist political thinker guides us through the classic text of political economy. For nearly forty years, David Harvey has taught and lectured on Marx's "Capital". In this book he draws on his rich knowledge of the text to create a step-by-step guide to the most important and influential study of capitalism. Aimed to guide first-time readers through a dense and complicated as well as a rich and fascinating text, the book offers fresh, original and sometimes critical interpretations of Marx's most famous work. The contemporary relevance of "Capital" to understanding the state of contemporary capitalism shines through in every chapter, making this a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the world today and its crises.

Review quote

"Harvey is a scholarly radical; his writing is free of journalistic cliches, full of facts and carefully thought-through ideas." Richard Sennett "Navigating effortlessly between history, economics, geography and politics, with persuasive argument and lucid prose, David Harvey places today's headlines in context and makes sense of the early twenty-first-century maelstrom we're all caught up in." Susan George "A magisterial work." Fredric Jameson"
