"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.

This is a careful and patient guide through Marx's Capital for any level of reader. Be warned, however, that the author wants you to read on Marx's terms, which means that there's very little commentary on how valid or invalid Marx's model of political economy happens to be.

Invaluable during my reading of Capital, Volume I. I wouldn't have understood Capital, Volume I nearly as much without having this book by its side. I definitely recommend it for anyone that's thinking of tackling Marx's first volume of Capital. Consulter l'avis complet
