The first volume of a political treatise that changed the world
One of the most notorious works of modern times, as well as one of the most influential, Capitalis an incisive critique of private property and the social relations it generates. 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 and create fresh insights. 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.Capitalrapidly acquired readership among the leaders of social democratic parties, particularly in Russia in Germany, and ultimately throughout the world, to become a work described by Marx friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels as the Bible of the working class.

   If you havent had an Economics course
If you don't speak French or German, you' ll find yourself reaching for a translator if you use the Penguin version. A member of my family teaches Economics and says the Penguin version of Marx is easier to comprehend than the original. The genius isn't hidden.
   Great abridged version.
The Oxford classics version has a great over view of Marx's Capital, but the author could have provided a summary of the excluded sections. The book is a good introduction to Marxism.
