by Louis Althusser, Etienne Balibar, Roger Establet, Pierre Macherey, and Jacques Rancière

“A classic work of Marxist analysis, available unabridged for the first time Originally published in 1965, Reading Capital is a landmark of French thought and radical theory, which sought to reconstruct Western Marxism from its foundations. Previously only available in English in a highly abridged form, this fiftieth-anniversary edition restores original chapters by Roger Establet, Pierre Macherey and Jacques Rancière, accompanied by a major new introduction by Etienne Balibar on the book’s continued impact.”
