One of the most notorious works of modern times, as well as one of the most influential, "Capital" is an incisive critique of private property and the social relations it generates. Living in exile in England, where this work was largely written, Marx drew on a wide-ranging knowledge of its society to support his analysis and generate fresh insights. Arguing that capitalism would create an ever-increasing division in wealth and welfare, he predicted its abolition and replacement by a system with common ownership of the means of production. "Capital" rapidly acquired readership among the leaders of social democratic parties, particularly in Russia and Germany, and ultimately throughout the world, to become a work described by Marx's friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels as 'the Bible of the Working Class'.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Karl Marx was born in 1818 in Trier, Germany and studied in Bonn and Berlin. Influenced by Hegel, he later reacted against idealist philosophy and began to develop his own theory of historical materialism. He related the state of society to its economic foundations and mode of production, and recommended armed revolution on the part of the proletariat. Together with Engels, who he met in Paris, he wrote the Manifesto of the Communist Party. He lived in England as a refugee until his death in 1888, after participating in an unsuccessful revolution in Germany.Ernst Mandel was a member of the Belgian TUV from 1954 to 1963 and was chosen for the annual Alfred Marshall Lectures by Cambridge University in 1978. He died in 1995 and the Guardian described him as 'one of the most creative and independent-minded revolutionary Marxist thinkers of the post-war world.'

The wealth of societies in which the capitalist mode of production prevails appears as an 'immense collection of commodities'; the individual commodity appears as its elementary form. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Format: Taschenbuch
This book was the bible of the recently collapsed east-European communist dictatorships - as few read there as the real bible is by the majority of Christians. But the main point, that the reviewers who refer to the millions of victims of communism are missing, is: "Capital" is not a book about how to mechanically accomplish communism, it is a book about capitalism. Marx was a philosopher and an eminent historical thinker, not a cynical practitioner of power like Lenin.
"Capital" brings a lot of strictly formal logic (Marx knew his Aristotle quite well), but the larger part of the first volume - the only one edited by Marx himself - is a vivid and compassionate description of early capitalist world as it were: A world in which slavery in America, serfdom in eastern Europe and 12-hours labour (without interruption for food or rest) for nine year old children in England coexisted as integrated parts of the emerging world market. A world in which millions of Irish and Indians starved to death due to economic changes imposed to them by their colonial masters. A world in which the English made the Chinese buy opium by military force. And a world whose leading economists argued that things were all right as they were - Marx's quotations are a rich source for the cynicism of the better off. All this makes me wonder if the reviewers who mutter about alleged flaws in Marx's Value Theory have ever read more than the first few chapters of "Capital". Certainly academic economic theories have changed a lot since Marx's days, but their baseline remains: things are ok as they are - and if they are not this is only due to the fact that there are still too many market barriers and obstacles for the free flow of investment. Here is the point where critique comes into play. Enter Marx.
"Capital" is by no means an outdated book - it is a book about the economic system we live in and about how this economic system came into being.

Format: Taschenbuch
Marx was not attempting to contribute to economic theory. His book was a *critique* of political economy (as economics was called back then).
Marx shows that politics--struggles over power, oppression and resistance--is the real substance of economics. In the 3 volumes of Capital, and the notebooks of the Grundrisse, Marx shows the categories of economic analysis for what they are: relations of force. Capitalism is a system of antagonism. In 'Marx Beyond Marx: Lessons on the Grundrisse', the Italian theorist Toni Negri states: "There is not a single category of capital that can be taken out of this antagonism, out of this perpetually fissioning flux."
For instance, the central concept of Marx's 'Capital', surplus-value, both conceals and points to this antagonistic tension. The very duality of the term testifies to this. As does the meaning of the term. Buy 'Capital', then read it as a critique of economic categories, and you may see this. For help, consult Marx's 'Grundrisse', the writings of Antonio Negri and Louis Althusser--and check out the exciting new journal, 'Rethinking Marxism'.
Marxism has gained a fresh life, free from the dogma of socialist states, infused with the insights of post-structuralism. Read Marx anew. And work for a better world. The revolution is here and now, here and there. Communism is not a utopia of the future; it is found in creative resistance and radical alternatives to capitalism today. Eventually perhaps, the communist efforts--the efforts which express the values of communism, as described by Marx and by writers like Negri and Derrida--may just gain hegemony in the world.
Marx's 'Capital' is no historical artifact; it is a great resource in the ongoing struggle under capitalism--a struggle inherent in capitalism. And what is this struggle over, exactly? It is a struggle to diminish the suffering in the world, the suffering of the world.

Format: Taschenbuch
For all those proponents of capitalism, this book will not interest you much. Marx writes to expose capital (money, interest, profit, value, etc) as a relation between people, as a relation of domination and exploitation. The central defense of capital by political economy meant a critique of political economy as the rational expression of a mad world.
What does it mean to try to give a rational explanation of a mad world, a world built upon exploitation/domination and the insubordination of that exploitation/domination (good, old class struggle, like in that bastion of U.S. power, South Korea)? Certainly not a text book on how it works, but a critique of the madness of calling exploitation/domination 'rational', 'moral', 'free', etc. Marx exposes the inherent fragility of capital's power because capital only exists as alienated labor power, the creativity of workers turned against themselves. All the wealth of all the rich and powerful is the product of the labor power of the workers.
Marx's ultimate message is that the capitalist needs the worker, but the worker's only need is the overthrow of capital and the establishment of a humane society: "The free development of all depends on the free development of each." (Marx, 1844 Manuscripts)
As for 'empirical' matters, capitalism has impoverished the vast mass of human beings for the vast wealth of a few. To see the misery, hunger, disease, and human debasement created by capital's thirst for profit and then to say 'capital has nothing to do with this' is to tell lies. To say that capital does not give rise to all the dictatorships of the world is telling lies. To say "Let the market sort it out." is to say "Let things stay as they are.
