"Marx hoped that he would gain a readership among a working-class audience for his book. There have been a few past attempts at producing guides for readers to promote that objective: Choonara’s is by far the best." —Michael Roberts, author of The Long Depression "This book stands out as an accessible and lucid guide to Marx’s Capital.
