I would say that this is an intermediate level book about Marxism in general, but a beginner level book in the field of Marxist political economy. Joseph Choonara here introduces readers to some crucial Marxist approaches – as developed above all in the three volumes of Capital. I found the level of discussion to be not too difficult, although there were some areas that I had to read more than once to get my head around, specifically those found in the chapter on Prices and the general rate of profit.
He gives numerous useful pointers to further reading. Concepts like surplus value, living and dead labour, variable capital, constant capital, the organic composition of capital and the tendency for the rate of profit to fall are all introduced and explained fairly well.
I usually like short-and-to-the-point reads but Choonara was a bit too concise for me, and I’m assuming a bit too concise for any reader who is a complete economy dummy. Hestmord rated it really liked it Feb 22, The Puzzle of Modern Economics.
