Summary of the Book
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 create fresh insights.
Arguing that capitalism would cause 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 in Germany, and ultimately throughout the world, to become a work described by Marx friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels as “the Bible of the working class.”
Reviews of Capital Volume I: The Process of Production of Capital
Great unfinished work of Karl Marx, Capital is the bible of the socialist and communist ideology. Long, sometimes perilous, with some touches of redundancy in the way, the book nevertheless offers a vision of the still nascent industrial society in the West. The alienation, labor exploitation, inhuman and devastating. The theory of surplus value, the origin of the money and exchange, division of labor and the conflict between the owners of Labour and those of Capital, Karl Marx gives us the perspective of the economic universe and according to him its time.
