Abstract:

"In Marx and Capital, David Harvey introduces and explains the architecture of capital as expounded by Marx in the three volumes of Capital, published between 1867 and 1883. He places Marx's observations and arguments in the context of capitalism in the second half of the nineteenth century and considers the degree to which technological, economic and industrial change during the last 150 years means the analysis and its application need to be modified. The books contain the core of Marx's thinking on the workings and history of capital and capitalism. From the time of publication of volume one, the work has had a profound effect on politics in theory and practice throughout the world. David Harvey demonstrates their lasting analytical power and writes in the clearest and simplest terms in a manner that, without compromising Capital's depth and complexity, will appeal to a wide range of readers, including those coming to the work for the first time."--Publisher's description.
