Edited by Samuel H. Beer, with key selections from Capital and "The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte", this volume features an especially helpful introduction that serves as a guide to Marxist political and economic theory and to placing the specific writings in their contemporary setting. Included are a bibliography and list of important dates in the life of Karl Marx.

"75% Marx, 25% implying he is wrong"
It is a pretty powerful book, but that power is undercut by the hour long (a literal quarter of the audiobook) explanation of why Communism does not work. I'm fine with that, but put it after the book when I actually have time to form my own opinion about the arguments. I would be fine with it if they actually advertised that there would be that much commentary.
The performance was WAY to quiet. I had to turn any speaker all the way up and mute any other noise to make out the sound.
"This is not the Communist Manifesto"
If I wanted a capitalist commenting on Marxs I would have looked for that in the title. waste of my money!
"Not at all what I wanted."
The actual words of Karl Marx instead of an interpretation of his writings.
A better description of the book content.
I needed to brush up on Marx after I was assigned to teach Western Civ Since 1660. I thought this recording was very well done. Love Marx or hate him, his writings were significant to history.
Yeah the Communist manifesto is a great pamphlet. The instruction condescended it as a curious bit of history but completely irrelevant and wrong. Now at the end of Capitalism I hope my fellow readers might realize the introducer to be exemplary of a curious bit of history but irrelevant and wrong.
"The narrator is horrible"
So many words said wrong, horrid inflection and some things misspoken so badly I actually had to guess at what the reader was saying. That being said I am not commenting on the content from the book, only the horrific job done by Joe Geoffery. I can't sate this enough get another copy this one was a very poor choice.
NO! again cant stress this enough.
"How Production Works"
It is a book that condensed many years of reading and analysis the economy. The tendency of this masterpiece is to balance the division of labor.
