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.

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.
