In these seven notebooks on capital and on money, drafted during the winter of 1857-8, he first explored the themes and theses that dominate all his later writings. It is here that Marx set out his mature views on labour, surplus value and profit and offered many fresh insights into alienation, automation, the restrictions of personality and recurrent economic crises produced by capitalism. Yet although the book sketches in most of the theories that were to be elaborated in detail in Capital, it also ranges far more widely, providing "the only outline of the full political-economic project" Marx never lived to complete. This major translation allows readers to assess an extraordinarily fruitful and stimulating text for themselves.
