More About Marx's Das Kapital by Francis Wheen
 
 
 
Overview
In vivid detail, Francis Wheen tells the story of "Das Kapital" and Karl Marx s twenty-year struggle to complete his unfinished masterpiece. Born in a two-room flat in London s Soho amid political squabbles and personal tragedy, the first volume of "Das Kapital" was published in 1867, to muted praise. But after Marx s death, the book went on to influence thinkers, writers, and revolutionaries, from George Bernard Shaw to V. I. Lenin, changing the direction of twentieth-century history. Wheen s captivating, accessible book shows that, far from being a dry economic treatise, "Das Kapital" is like a vast Gothic novel whose heroes are enslaved by the monster they created: capitalism. Furthermore, Wheen argues, as long as capitalism endures, "Das Kapital" demands to be read and understood."
