Abstract:

In the most complete, accurate and accessible presentation of Karl Marx's theory of capitalism to date, Johan Fornäs presents a guide for anyone who wants to understand how today's crisis-ridden society has emerged and is able to sustain and intensify its own deep inner contradictions. Capitalism clearly explains these contradictions, which are so relevant again today in the wake of the financial crisis. This clear and engaging guide explains capitalism for absolute beginners. Fornäs situates Marx's ideas in context, remaining faithful to the concepts and structure of hi.
