First American edition of economist A. Leontiev's authoritative introduction to Marxist economics.
Leontiev provides a complete yet understandable textbook for Marxist-Leninist political economy. Leontiev covers everything from commodty production and value to the role of money and wages. His concern for the fate of the working class is ever-present and his faith in the rightness of Marxist ideology is equally so. This is, without question, one of the best primers to Marxist ideology in its undiluted, untarnished state. Preceded the same year by the first edition in English, printed in Moscow by the Co-operative Publ. Soc. of Foreign Workers in the U.S.S.R., and also published the same year as the first British edition.
Book fine, dust jacket near-fine with slightest soiling and mild toning to extremities. A handsome copy.
