The Mismeasure of Wealth
Essays on Marx and Social Form
A wide-ranging collection of essays dealing with Marx's key insights in political economy and the historical materialist method
Murray's essays concentrate on Marx the historical materialist, the investigator of historically specific social forms of wealth and labour. In probing Marx's dialectical accounts of the commodity, value, money, surplus value, wage labour and capital, The Mismeasure of Wealth establishes Marx's singular relevance for critical social theory today.
