Title Beyond capital : Marx's political economy of the working class / Michael A. Lebowitz
Published Basingstoke, Hampshire : Macmillan, 1992


Location Call no. Vol. Availability
Description xii, 187 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm
Summary Marxism has long been accused of economic determinism, reductionism and a silence on human experience. Beyond Capital argues that these problems can be traced back to Marx's failure to write his planned book on Wage-Labor. Added to the subsequent ignorance of Marx's method, the result has been a one-sided presentation of Marxism. By considering workers and their needs, Beyond Capital demonstrates the one-sidedness of such concepts as the value of labor-power and the theoretical inferences drawn from Capital. However, rather than rejecting Marx, Beyond Capital argues that his "political economy of the working class" and the process of struggle are central for going beyond capitalism
