Karl Marx set about to analyze the development pf capital, the componets of capital and the modern day application of capital. As a political economy scientist he outlined the key human ingredient; the concept of the 'surplus value of labor'. This concept is the most difficult to understand of the three essential elements of what we now call Marxism, but it is the most important. As well, this work is the most important contribution of Marx to the world of political economy. Regardless of one's political and economic views it is necessary to comprehend what is put forward by Karl Marx's Das Kapital in order to have knowledge of how capital is created and used in the production of all goods and services. Of the 50 books I have published to date, Das Kapital is the best seller in the USA and the UK. A Collector's Edition.

More About Karl Marx
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.'

Reviews - What do customers think about Das Kapital?
Not the real deal May 16, 2008
Das Kapital is essential reading for any educated person. Unfortunately, this hardcover "collector's edition" is not the real deal. It's photocopied from an ancient English translation. It's also abridged. The publisher supplies no information about the translator(s). He also eliminates Marx's notes as well as the prefaces Marx and later Engels wrote for nineteenth century translations. Better to get the Penguin Classics edition published in association with New Left Review (Capital: Volume 1: A Critique of Political Economy (Penguin Classics)). It's the complete text, well translated by Ben Fowles, and contains Marx's notes along with the original prefaces.
