Description


Karl Marx's Capital is one of the most important texts written in the modern era. Since 1867, when the first of its three volumes was published, it has had a profound effect on politics and economics in theory and practice throughout the world. But Marx wrote in the context of capitalism in
the second half of the nineteenth century, and his assumptions and analysis need to be updated in order to address to the technological, economic, and industrial change that has followed Capital's initial publication. In Marx, Capital, and the Madness of Economic Reason, David Harvey not only
provides a concise distillation of his famous course on Capital, but also makes the text relevant to the twenty-first century's continuing processes of globalization. This book serves as an accessible window into Harvey's unique approach to Marxism and takes readers on a riveting roller coaster ride
through recent global history. It demonstrates how and why Capital remains a living, breathing document with an outsized influence on contemporary social thought.
