I do not have the copy of Capital with me. Therefore, I am relying on my
memory. I think it is in the preface to the first German edition. If not
there, then, it is in the afterword to the second German edition.

Hi Dogan:

I also don't have a copy of _Capital_ with me, but I can say
categorically that Marx _NEVER_ recommended IN _Capital_ skipping the
first chapter.  Indeed, I think he makes precisely the _OPPOSITE_ point
in his "Preface to the French Edition" of Volume One in his remarks
about how a "beginning is difficult in all sciences".

In solidarity, Jerry

Marx suggests skiping the first chapter, too, if it is difficult to
understand. But he does not say we can put it aside. I think it is the key
chapter to understand Capital.
