    In his monumental work, Das Kapital, Karl Marx (1818-1883) tried to show that capitalism was both inefficient and immoral. His key to explaining capitalism is his labor theory of value, which he developed from ideas of Adam Smith and David Ricardo.

    Jeff says: "Should Rename As Das Kapital Cliffnotes Unabridged"
    "Too much editorial"

    What would have made Karl Marx better?

    Author of the collected excerpts should not have included such copious and obvious negative opinions and points about the work. Historical context and some opinion is appreciated, but this goes way over the top. I wish it focused more on citing the text, and explaining the issues without being so pushy trying to de-legitimate the ideas- They speak for themselves.


    Has Karl Marx turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes, if the genre is "extreme editorial of major texts"


    What three words best describe Louis Rukeyser’s voice?

    clear, authoritative, direct


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Karl Marx?

    well, actually, i was trying to find the original work unabridged, so i would have cut everything the author added.


    Any additional comments?

    this is a terrible version to buy if you are not already familiar with the original text.. also it is worthless if you already are familiar. overall, do not buy.
