Michael Wayne. Illustrated by Sungyoon Choi.
Marx’s ‘Das Kapital’ cannot be put into a box
marked “economics.” It is a work of politics, history,
economics, philosophy, and even literature. Marx’s
‘Das Kapital’ For Beginners is an introduction to
the Marxist critique of capitalist production and its
consequences for a whole range of social activities
such as politics, media, education and religion.
The book offers an accessible path through Marx’s
arguments and his key questions. Marx’s work has
taken on a fresh urgency as questions about the
sustainability of the capitalist system in today’s
global economy intensify.
