> A  COMPANION TO MARX’S CAPITAL
>
> by DAVID HARVEY
>
> Published 12th April 2010
>
> A guided tour through Marx’s classic text of political economy –  
> arguably the most visionary and controversial book since the Bible –  
> by the esteemed radical geographer and social theorist, David  
> Harvey. A COMPANION TO MARX’S CAPITAL is the perfect accompaniment  
> for students to Marx’s economic writings.
>
> David Harvey has been writing and lecturing on CAPITAL for nearly  
> forty years and is one of the world’s foremost and bestselling Marx  
> scholars. The book is based on his recent lectures on CAPITAL and  
> aims to bring this depth of learning to a broader audience, guiding  
> first-time readers through a fascinating and deeply rewarding text.  
> The series of 13 video lectures are available online at www.davidharvey.org 
>  and, together with the book, make a unique resource for  
> understanding the essential but often challenging CAPITAL. The book  
> was created from the lectures after a huge demand on the website,  
> which has now had over a million hits.
>
> Since the start of the financial meltdown of 2008 there has been a  
> huge resurgence of interest in Karl Marx. With millions now losing  
> their jobs and an approaching election defined by public service  
> cuts, CAPITAL has more relevance than ever: CAPITAL reading groups  
> are multiplying and book sales continue to soar. As the GUARDIAN  
> said: “Karl Marx is back”, while the TIMES wrote “the prophet of  
> revolutionaries everywhere, the scourge of capitalism, is enjoying a  
> comeback.” A COMPANION TO MARX’S CAPITAL offers fresh, original and  
> sometimes critical interpretations of a book that changed the course  
> of history and can, more than any other, help us understand the  
> roots of the current crisis.
