Shortly before he was assassinated in 1940, Leon Trotsky – one of Marx’s most devoted converts and a key figure in the Russian Revolution – wrote a lengthy and insightful introduction to Otto Rühle’s selection from Capital. Compact and fascinating, this invaluable work not only presents Marx’s thoughts in his own words but also places them in the swirling context of the twentieth century.

A critical analysis of ideas that have influenced millions of lives for over a century, this book will be an important addition to the libraries of students and instructors of economics, history, government and Communist thought.
