Marx's groundbreaking analysis of capitalism retains its relevance today. This book guides readers as they grapple with Marx's masterpiece, Capital.
Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in Marx's Capital inspired, in particular, by the crisis of 2008-9 and the period of slow growth that has followed. Marx was capitalism's greatest critic and his work retains its relevance 150 years after its initial publication. Here, Choonara breaks down the thousand page text, making it inviting and accessible for the reader. A Reader's Guide to Capital is an essential tool for students, activists, and others looking to read this classic text today.
'Marx hoped that he would gain a readership among a working-class audience for his book. There have been a few attempts at producing guides for readers to promote the object: Choonara's is by far the best' — Michael Roberts, author of The Long Depression
