Marx's Capital Illustrated

Marx's Capital Illustrated Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine Karl Marx as a cartoonist, ready to set the record straight about his much maligned classic, Das Kapital. Impossibly difficult? Not in the least. Hopelessly outdated? Far from it. Though first published in 1867, Capital remains keenly relevant. Society continues to run on investment and profit, labor and technology. And predictions that once might have seemed rash—global economic crisis, societies nearing bankruptcy—are now simply facts. Capital remains the fullest attempt to explain these facts, and Marx's Capital Illustrated brings this attempt to vibrant life, proceeding all the way from the ABCs to the pertinence of Marx's theory of crisis for today's global woes.

Fresh, funny, and copiously illustrated, this book is for everyone who wants better insight into Capital and capitalism. Readers of Marx, unite! You have found your starting point.

Synopsis:

This beginners guide to Capital illustrates the key concepts, humour, and immense vitality to be enjoyed in Marx's great work.

Synopsis:

"Valuable...in some respects more so than all the interpretations and popularizations I have read." –– C.L.R. James

"[iMarx's Capital Illustratedi] is very, very good, a brilliant exposition and a really creative relationship between image and explanation." –– John Berger

Richly illustrated, strikingly accessible, and surprisingly comprehensive, David N. Smith and Phil Evans present Karl Marx's Capital as it was meant to be: in graphic novel form.
