Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“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.

Synopsis:

The radical geographer guides us through the classic text of political economy.

Synopsis:

David Harvey, the renowned lecturer and commentator on Marx, has finally collected his most recent lectures on Marx"s Capitalhere in one volume. Guiding the reader through the dense, complex and difficult text, Harvey elucidates its various theses and nuances for a broader audience, encompassing both the lay reader and the graduate student, who will surely benefit from Harvey"s original and sometimes critical interpretations of Marx. Where Capitalwas written in reaction to 19th industrialization, Harvey"s insights update the text for the modern reader, for whom the perils of contemporary capitalism continue to rage strong.
