Below is a major new (1999) introduction to Marx's political economy,
coming out of Hyderabad, India.  The writing style is very much intended
to be written for WORKERS and, from what I have read, is indeed very
clear.  Below are the tables of contents for the three volumes.  The
pricing of $35 for all three volumes cannot be beat (and they are
well-done hardbacks), including air mail shipping.
