I would have enjoyed this title if it had actually contained at least a few hours of the original text of the book it purports to be. Unfortunately its almost entirely commentary and spends more time refuting Marx than letting the reader hear his thoughts. The voice actors with foreign accents were also in my opinion unnecessary. A shortened version of this title would be great as an introduction to the actual work. Audible really needs to find some better recordings for the works of Marx.

Not that I should be surprised at the anti-Marx sentiment given that this was produced in 1988, but this was more about Marx and his ideas, some of which were central to Das Kapital. I was more of an apologists response to Capitalism. Having recently, finished listening to Marx' Capital, I decided to give this a chance. It seems that the primary motivation was to discredit certain aspects of Marx' thought and without always providing appropriate context. At least the closing statement was that the "Communists in Russia had little to do with Marxism."

WHEN I PURCHASED THIS WELL READ AUDIO BOOK , I THOUGHT IT WAS (AN ABRIDGED VERSION) OF DAS KAPITAL!
HOWEVER IT WAS AN OVERVIEW BY DAVID STEELE OF KARL MARX:; ALTHOUGH VERY INFORMATIVE ONE COULD BE FORGIVEN INTO THINKING THE AUTHOR HAD HIS OWN PRECONCIEVED UNDERSTANDING OF "MARXISM" AND IT'S SUBSEQUENT INFLUENCE ON WORLD HISTORY BOTH PAST AND TO COME.
I ENJOYED LISTENING AND THOUGHT THE "BOOK" WORTH THE £5-00.
I CONTINUE TO SEARCH FOR A COPY OF DAS KAPITAL (PREFERABLY IN AN AUDI0 FORMAT)

Unless I am very much mistaken this IS NOT das kapital. I would not have bought this if I knew it was someone's opinion of das kapital.
This is terrible DO NOT BUY.
