Description

"My aim is to get you to read a book by Karl Marx called Capital, Volume 1, and to read it on Marx's own terms..." The biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression has generated a surge of interest in Marx's work in the effort to understand the origins of our current predicament. 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, this current volume aims to bring this depth of learning to a broader audience, guiding first-time readers through a fascinating and deeply rewarding text. A Companion to Marx's Capital offers fresh, original and sometimes critical interpretations of a book that changed the course of history and, as Harvey intimates, may do so again.

Review quote

A Companion to Marx's Capital is at once sleeker and more lucid, communicating the theoretical nuances of dialectical thought and the history of struggles over the length of the working day with marvelous grace. It is without a doubt one of the two best companions to Marx's pivotal work. "Harvey is a scholarly radical; his writing is free of journalistic cliches, full of facts and carefully thought-through ideas."--Richard Sennett Harvey is a scholarly radical; his writing is free of journalistic cliches, full of facts and carefully thought-through ideas. --Richard Sennett
