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'.

A classic of early modernism, Capital combines vivid historical detail with economic analysis to produce a bitter denunciation of mid-Victorian capitalist society. It has also proved to be the most influential work in social science in the twentieth century; Marx did for social science what Darwin had done for biology. Millions of readers this century have treated Capital as a sacred text, subjecting it to as many different interpretations as the Bible itself. No mere work of dry economics, Marx's great work depicts the unfolding of industrial capitalism as a tragic drama - with a message which has lost none of its relevance today. This is the only abridged edition to take account of the whole of Capital. It offers virtually all of Volume 1, which Marx himself published in 1867, excerpts from a new translation of 'The Result of the Immediate Process of Production', and a selection of key chapters from Volume 3, which Engels published in 1895.

Capital, Volume I (1867) 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. The first of three volumes of Das Kapital, Kritik der politischen Ökonomie (Capital: Critique of Political Economy) was published on 14 September 1867, dedicated to Wilhelm Wolff and was the sole volume published in Marx’s lifetime.

Hailed by Friedrich Engels as "the bible of the working class," this 1867 classic of political economics changed the course of history. Thirty years in the making, Capital, Volume I was the first installment of Karl Marx's three-part Das Kapital and the only volume published during his lifetime. Marx declared that society is evolving from crude, unbalanced economic systems toward a utopian state — specifically, communism. His critiques of private property and class struggles aroused tremendous interest and exercised an influence that resonates to this day. Marx offers a penetrating analysis of capitalism's inner workings, examining commodities, value, money, and other factors related to the system's historic origins and contemporary functions. These considerations form the framework for his conclusion: the system cannot be reformed and must be overthrown by a revolution, resulting in a socialist society in which production serves the needs of every individual rather than generating profits for the few.

Written during the winter of 1857-8, the Grundrisse was considered by Marx to be the first scientific elaboration of communist theory. A collection of seven notebooks on capital and money, it both develops the arguments outlined in the Communist Manifesto (1848) and explores the themes and theses that were to dominate his great later work Capital. Here, for the first time, Marx set out his own version of Hegel's dialectics and developed his mature views on labour, surplus value and profit, offering many fresh insights into alienation, automation and the dangers of capitalist society. Yet while the theories in Grundrisse make it a vital precursor to Capital, it also provides invaluable descriptions of Marx's wider-ranging philosophy, making it a unique insight into his beliefs and hopes for the foundation of a communist state.

Globalisierung, Finanzcrash, Klima, Armutsrevolten, Wachstumsschwäche – die multiple Krise, die die westlichen Gesellschaften durchlebt, nimmt kein Ende. Ist der Kapitalismus am Ende? Diese Frage wird inzwischen auch unter den Eliten der Weltwirtschaftsgipfel diskutiert. Grund genug, das Kapital noch einmal zu lesen. Das Buch, das die Bewegungsgesetze kapitalistischer Gesellschaften enthüllt, die weißen Flecken der ökonomischen Wissenschaften kritisiert, die Begriffe geschärft hat, mit denen wir die Welt, in der wir leben, begreifen können. Die Phänomene unserer Gegenwart scheinen weit entfernt von der Welt, in der Karl Marx sein Buch schrieb. Aber das Kapital erklärt nicht nur die Keimformen, aus denen diese Welt entstand, sondern identifiziert in der Entstehungsgeschichte und der Dynamik der kapitalistischen Produktionsweise, die den Wohlstand der Welt in unvorstellbarer Weise gemehrt hat, zugleich die Mechanismen seiner Zerstörung, seiner Endlichkeit – und die Kräfte zu seiner Überwindung. Gilt das noch im Zeitalter des Turbokapitalismus? Soziologen, Publizisten, Politiker, Philosophen und Wirtschaftswissenschaftler haben das Kapital noch einmal gelesen. Ausgehend von jeweils einem Kapitel des Werkes ziehen sie die Linien zur Gegenwart und denken über die Aktualität und die Grenzen der Marxschen Theorie nach, subjektiv, essayistisch und mit dem Blick auf die politischen Möglichkeiten heute. Denn darauf, so Marx, kommt es an: Die Welt nicht nur zu interpretieren, sondern sie zu verändern.

Karl Marx s Grundrisse

Genre: Philosophy

Written between 1857 and 1858, the Grundrisse is the first draft of Marx’s critique of political economy and, thus, also the initial preparatory work on Capital. Despite its editorial vicissitudes and late publication, Grundrisse contains numerous reflections on matters that Marx did not develop elsewhere in his oeuvre and is therefore extremely important for an overall interpretation of his thought. In this collection, various international experts in the field, analysing the Grundrisse on the 150th anniversary of its composition, present a Marx in many ways radically different from the one who figures in the dominant currents of twentieth-century Marxism. The book demonstrates the relevance of the Grundrisse to an understanding of Capital and of Marx’s theoretical project as a whole, which, as is well known, remained uncompleted. It also highlights the continuing explanatory power of Marxian categories for contemporary society and its present contradictions. With contributions from such scholars as Eric Hobsbawm and Terrell Carver, and covering subject areas such as political economy, philosophy and Marxism, this book is likely to become required reading for serious scholars of Marx across the world.
