Description

Karl Marx's greatest work, his magnum opus, with an exquisitely designed, modernist cover, now in paperback.

Engels once described Karl Marx's opus as "the Bible of the working class."

Nearly a hundred and fifty years after the first publication of Volume 1 (1867), Capital "retains all its freshness and is more relevant and actual than ever" (Althusser). Especially after the recent financial meltdown and continuing crisis of the capitalist system, the insights provided by this magisterial text seem more vital than ever.

Volume 1 (1867) was the only one published in Marx's lifetime, and is dedicated to Wilhelm Wolf. This volume is a critical analysis of political economy, meant to reveal the contradictions of the capitalist mode of production, how it was the precursor of the socialist mode of production, and of the class struggle rooted in the capitalist social relations of production.

Volume 2 subtitled The Process of Circulation of Capital, was prepared by Friedrich Engels from notes left by Karl Marx and published in 1885. This volume deals with how value and surplus value are realised.

Volume 3, subtitled The Process of Capitalist Production as a Whole, was prepared by Friedrich Engels from notes left by Karl Marx and published in 1894. This volume contains the famous section on the law of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall.

The present three-volume edition is a facsimile reprint of the Progress Publishers' edition, translated by Samuel Moore and Edward Aveling. The cover, a minimalist avant grade modernist masterpiece, makes this edition a bibliophile's delight.
