The "germ" of Das Kapital, introduced by Maurice DobbFirst edition, first printing, edited and introduced by Maurice Herbert Dobb, the founder of Marxist academia in Britain. This is the second English translation of Marx's Zur Kritik der politischen Oekonomie (1859), the "germ" of Das Kapital. The Kritik was Marx's first attempt at a general statement of his theories, written following several years' research in the British Museum. Marx had initially planned a multi-volume work, but he was dissatisfied with it, and no further parts were written or published. It represents Marx's early attempts at the formulation of his economic theories and contains his treatment of the history of value and monetary theory. The preface outlines his classic formulation of historical materialism, and as such is the major Marxist contribution to the interpretation of history and political economy.
