INGO ELBE TRANSLATION PROJECT

From Chris O’Kane:

Ingo Elbe’s Marx im Westen is the authoritative theoretical history of West German Marxist Theory providing a brilliant and lucid account of the intricacies of the debates over Marx’s theory of Value, the State Derivation debate and Revolutionary Theory. The work is therefore essential for understanding the work of German theorists who have been translated in the Anglophone world such as Michael Heinrich and Heide Gerstenberger as well as the influence these debates had on the Anglophone work of the CSE, Open Marxism, Value-Form Theory and Political Marxism.

Unfortunately, such authority also comes at a price: the book’s length has prohibited any press from being able to translate it. This is why I am soliciting volunteers to translate selections from Marx im Westen in order to make it available to the English reading public.

Those willing and able to contribute to such a project please contact:  theresonlyonechrisokane@gmail.com

Karl Marx

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE THREE VOLUMES OF KARL MARX’S ‘CAPITAL’

New from MR Press!

An Introduction to the Three Volumes of Karl Marx’s Capital
by Michael Heinrich 
translated by Alex Locascio 

“An excellent little introduction to Marx’s masterpiece.”
—Doug Henwood, editor, Left Business Observer
 
“A ‘must-read’ in our time of crisis.”
—Paul LeBlanc, La Roche College; author, From Marx to Gramsci 
 
“The best introduction to Capital I have read.”
—Michael Perelman, California State University, Chico; author, The Invisible Handcuffs of Capitalism 
 
“A brilliant presentation of Marx’s Capital.”
—Paddy Quick, St. Francis College; member, Union for Radical Political Economics
 
“Likely the best short introduction to Marx’s Capital to ever appear in English.”
—Riccardo Bellofiore, University of Bergamo, Italy; co-editor, Re-Reading Marx
 
“The best and most comprehensive introduction to Marx’s Capital there is.”
—Werner Bonefeld, Department of Politics, University of York
 
“A fundamental reinterpretation and understanding of Marx’s theory.”
—John Milios, National Technical University of Athens, Greece

Heinrich’s modern interpretation of Capital is now available to English-speaking readers for the first time. It has gone through nine editions in Germany, is the standard work for Marxist study groups, and is used widely in German universities. The author systematically covers all three volumes of Capital and explains all the basic aspects of Marx’s critique of capitalism in a way that is clear and concise. He provides background information on the intellectual and political milieu in which Marx worked, and looks at crucial issues beyond the scope of Capital, such as class struggle, the relationship between capital and the state, accusations of historical determinism, and Marx’s understanding of communism. Uniquely, Heinrich emphasizes the monetary character of Marx’s work, in addition to the traditional emphasis on the labor theory of value, thus highlighting the relevance of Capital to the age of financial explosions and implosions. 

Michael Heinrich teaches economics in Berlin and is managing editor of PROKLA: Journal for Critical Social Science. He is the author of The Science of Value: Marx’s Critique of Political Economy between Scientific Revolution and Classical Tradition, and editor, with Werner Bonefeld, of Capital and Critique: After the “New Reading” of Marx. Translator Alexander Locascio was previously active in the U.S. labor movement and now lives in Berlin, where he is a member of the party Die Linke and of ver.di, the German service workers union.

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE THREE VOLUMES OF KARL MARX’S CAPITAL

By Michael Heinrich translated by Alex Locascio

http://monthlyreview.org/press/books/pb2884/

The global economic crisis and recession that began in 2008 had at least one unexpected outcome: a surge in sales of Karl Marx’s Capital. Although mainstream economists and commentators once dismissed Marx’s work as outmoded and flawed, some are begrudgingly acknowledging an analysis that sees capitalism as inherently unstable. And of course, there are those, like Michael Heinrich, who have seen the value of Marx all along, and are in a unique position to explain the intricacies of Marx’s thought.

Heinrich’s modern interpretation of Capital is now available to English-speaking readers for the first time. It has gone through nine editions in Germany, is the standard work for Marxist study groups, and is used widely in German universities. The author systematically covers all three volumes of Capital and explains all the basic aspects of Marx’s critique of capitalism in a way that is clear and concise.  He provides background information on the intellectual and political milieu in which Marx worked, and looks at crucial issues beyond the scope of Capital, such as class struggle, the relationship between capital and the state, accusations of historical determinism, and Marx’s understanding of communism. Uniquely, Heinrich emphasizes the monetary character of Marx’s work, in addition to the traditional emphasis on the labor theory of value, thus highlighting the relevance of Capital to the age of financial explosions and implosions.

Michael Heinrich teaches economics in Berlin and is managing editor of PROKLA: Journal for Critical Social Science. He is the author of The Science of Value: Marx’s Critique of Political Economy between Scientific Revolution and Classical Tradition, and editor, with Werner Bonefeld, of Capital and Critique: After the “New Reading” of Marx.
