Karl Marx was commissioned by the Communist League along with Friederich Engels to write The Communist Manifesto. The manifesto is considered to be one of the world's most influential political tracts. In 1859 Marx published A Contribution To The Critique Of Political Economy, which was his first serious economic work.

  • This 1859 book was the first serious economic work of Karl Marx (1818-1888), and expounds ideas which were later developed in much greater detail in his magnum opus, Capital: A Critique of Political Economy. Modern Library Giant G-26.

    Hie Preface gives an excellent brief summary of his position, observing that men "enter into ... relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production... The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life. It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness... but the productive forces developing within bourgeois society create also the material conditions for a solution of this antagonism." (Pg. 20-22)

    He asserts that every commodity has a twofold aspect: "use-value," and "exchange-value" (pg. 27), and that quantitative differences of the commodities as exchange values are "merely the quantitative differences of the labor embodied in them." (Pg. 30)

    He states that "Bourgeois society is the most advanced and complex hsitorical organization of production." (Pg. 210)

    This book will be of signficiant interest to those studying the development of Marx's economic ideas.

  • This edition is only a poorly xeroxed copy of the original text. The resolution is bad and the page diagram is terrible. The format is broken, you can only see the page sideways and half of the text per page. I do not recommend the download.

  • Can't pinch page larger, can't look up a word, page rotation a mess. Amazon refunded me. I'm supposed to be notified when all issues are fixed, but until then, STAY AWAY !!!

  • I have only just now started reading the book.

  • Another five star book, by Marx? Who would have thought!?

    There's a lot of good information in this book, and it also serves as great source for watching Marx develop his devastating critique of Political Economy. This book is most famous for the preface, where Marx re-introduces the world to his theory of Historical Materialism, and he develops this cogent theory in roughly 250 words. Marx was a true master of saying a whole lot, with very little. But, as anyone whose read his larger works knows, he also can say very little, with a whole lot.

    If one actually reads the preface in its entirety, there's no mistaking Historical Materialism for the neo-deterministic theory many liberals, and totalitarian Marxists think it is. Marx is very careful and deliberate with his wordings, about conditioning, and influence, not determination, and necessity.

    The rest of this book serves as a fantastic introduction to the first three chapters of Capital. Moreover, he develops his theory of money in this book in a way that makes it completely compatible with a non-gold standard system, to the chagrin of Austrian economist!

    If you're a bit scared to enter the dialectical waters of Capital Volume I, this is a great place to start. Abstract labor, and value, are explained with analytic clarity, not dialectical profundity. Although it needs to be pointed out that this book still isn't his complete theory of exploitation, labor, labor power, and socially necessary labor time. This cannot serve as a replacement to Capital, merely a good introduction.
