It is a crime that no matter how hard one searches there is NO hardcover edition of this book available, but only these very flimsy editions that turn yellow and brittle in no time. I need a copy of this book that I can use heavily without it falling apart as all penguins and vintage pb's do. Help anybody?

I give this book 3 stars - 5 stars for the original author's book, but 1 star for this typo-filled, poor translation with a long Trotskyite introduction. They should have spent more time on typos and translation than interpretation. For example, look on page 511
Mr. Baynes, of Blackburn, in a lecture published in 1858, estimates that "each real mechanical horse-power [25] will drive 450 self-acting mule spindles, with preparation, or 220 throstle spindles, or 15 looms for 40 inch cloth with the appliances for warping, sizing, &c."
Every other translation of Capital says 200 throstle spindles, not 220. And 220 throstle spindles doesn't even make any sense. This particular version of Capital is full of errors and typos like that.

Reading through my review of Capital vol 1 I don't think there's much else to be said about Capital vol 2. The books are atrociously bad to read. Compared to the previous one the gratuitous uses of ... Read full review

Volume II of Capital is a slog. I am not sure it's a worthwhile slog. A lot of it is Marx' tedious and rather unedifying algebra, attempting to illustrate the theories of capital reproduction ... Read full review

Lost my notes on this book unfortunately, but loved his wit and sense of humor. I was also shocked to see, from his comments on slaves resisting by working slowly and 'accidentally' destroying farm ... Read full review
