    I was recommended to read this by a friend here on goodreads There is an online video course thing that Harvey does too he has been teaching his course on Capital for 40 years or something and when he put the course online as a series of video lectures he was asked if he would also write a companion book this book to those lectures The course is available here ve written my review of Capit...

    Rather than watching hours of the videos of David Harvey s class on Capital online, we can now pick up this book Harvey is a great guide though Marx, especially through the very rough first sections Reading this book without reading Capital itself is better than not reading either, but I endorse Harvey s request that you really do read Marx in his own words Yes, that damned coat gets on the nerves, but Marx s writings are literature just irreducible to any interpretation.I love that Harvey Rather than watching hours of the videos of David Harvey s...

    Even though I m a radical leftist, the economic determinism of historical materialism had always made me want to distance myself from Marx especially after reading Karl Popper s scathing critique of it Now, though, thanks to David Harvey, I realize that historical materialism can be interpreted in a non causal sense In fact, Marx never or rarely thinks in causal terms To him everything has a dialectical relationship with its surrounding and is influenced by it and co evolve with it and ther Even though I m a radical leftist, the economic determinism of historical material...

    Before digging into David Harvey s Companion to Marx s Capital, I wondered what insight Marx might have into the functioning of the economy I was pleasantly surprised to discover, at least on Harvey s account, what a seminal and important work Marx s Capital is, up there with Adam Smith s Wealth of Nations And in many respects,...

    You should read Marx s Capital it s easier, funnier, and smarter than you think it will be, and you can gloss over some of the hard parts the first time through and still get the jist Harvey s companion is another route to go its based on his youtube able lecture series, and it works hard to explain some of Marx sarcane arguments, point out areas where he s unclear or incorrect, and tells you which parts you can skim if you just want to understand the arguments Harvey s tone is convers You should read Marx s Capital it s easier, funnier, and smarter than you think it will be, and yo...

    A great recapitulation of the first volume of Capital for modern readers, written by a professor who taught the book for thirty years and who has his own intriguing ideas to add.

    wish I had gotten the complete edition with all three volumes

    David Harvey says early in the book that his understanding of Marx s Capital has developed over the course of many years of teaching the book He has taught it to economists, philosophers, English students, and even a group of Derrideans, who insisted on checking translations and examining Marx s language so much that the group barely got past the first chapter What came to fascinate me, Harvey says, was that each group saw different things in Capital I found myself learningand David Harvey says early in the boo...
