Promotional Information

An account and technical assessment of Marx's economic analysis in Capital and other documents.


'This is vintage Hollander: beautifully written, highly opinionated and extremely well researched. It is the culmination of decades of scholarship on classical and post-classical political economy. Many readers will question Hollander's interpretation of Marx as an unsuccessful predecessor of Walras, but few will fail to be stimulated, or provoked, by this book.' John King, La Trobe University 'For those hoping for an understanding of Marx and Marx's economics, the long wait is over. Samuel Hollander has delivered a masterpiece. All of the old disturbing puzzles are revealed and resolved: from value and distribution, to the falling rate of profit, growth and cycle and the thorny and infamous transformation problem itself. From cover-to-cover, the care and breadth of exposition, the insight and the scholarship are nothing short of breathtaking. This is truly a major event for economists, social and political scientists and intellectual historians, and no less a landmark achievement in the history of economic thought. All those interested not only in the historical Marx, but also in the true nature and significance of his work to modern economics and present-day concerns (including Marx on equity, the role of the entrepreneur and the process of social reform) will relish at the turn of every page of this wonderful book.' Tom Kompas, The Australian National University
