This audiobook contains all 3 volumes of Capital, a compendium that Marx's collaborator Friedrich Engels described as 'the Bible of the working class'.

One of the most notorious and influential works of modern times, Capital is an incisive critique of private property and the social relations it generates.

Volume 1: Living in exile in England, where this work was largely written, Marx drew on a wide-ranging knowledge of its society to support his analysis. Arguing that capitalism would cause an ever-increasing division in wealth and welfare, he predicted its abolition and replacement by a system with common ownership of the means of production.

Volume 2: The 'forgotten' second volume of Capital, Marx's world-shaking analysis of economics, politics, and history. This volume also contains the vital discussion of commodity - the cornerstone to Marx's theories.

Volume 3: Unfinished at the time of Marx's death in 1883 and first published with a preface by Frederick Engels in 1894. Here, Marx asserts that - regardless of the efforts of individual capitalists, public authorities or even generous philanthropists - any market economy is inevitably doomed to endure a series of worsening, explosive crises leading finally to complete collapse. But he also offers an inspirational and compelling prediction: that the end of capitalism will culminate, ultimately, in the birth of a far greater form of society.
