Summary
In his classic of early modernism, Marx combines vivid historical detail with economic analysis to produce a bitter denunciation of mid-Victorian capitalist society. This is the only abridged edition to take into account the whole of Capital. It offers virtually all of Volume 1, which Marx himself published in 1867; excerpts from a new translation of "The Result of the Immediate Process Production"; and a selection of key chapters from Volume 3, which Engels published in 1895
