Karl Marx wrote his huge three-volume study Capital a century and a half ago. It remains the single most influential study of the economic laws of motion of capital, of how capital is deployed in an endless quest for continued accumulation, and of how the labour power of the working class is exploited to produce surplus value for the profit of the owners of the means of production
The Communist Party of Australia (Marxist-Leninist) has commissioned this outline of Marx’s Capital from renowned Australian Marxist historian Humphrey McQueen whose pioneering study A New Britannia (Penguin, 1970) opened a new page in approaches to Australian History.
