This concise book is an introduction to Marx's key work, "Capital". This new edition has been fully revised and updated, making it a suitable 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 the relevance of "Capital" 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.
