Karl Marx's Capital is the classic text of Marxism for economists, social scientists, philosophers, students and political activists alike. But the sheer extent of Marx's great work of political economy has often daunted readers, and hampered their understanding of his ideas. Chris Arthur has substantially edited and abridged Marx's monumental work, eliminating the more arcane polemics, the scholarly footnotes, statistical data and mathematical formulae. He leaves intact and clarified Marx's main theoretical arguments and the historical information which supports them. 'Chris Arthur has solved the problem of slimming down Capital with exceptional success' EJ Hobsbawm 'A skilful abridgement...approachable and readable' Sean Sayers, Political Studies
