Hi folks,
         If you are thinking about buying the new ('improved')  edition of 
Beyond CAPITAL, you may want to know that there seems to be quite a bit of 
variation in prices for the paperback edition. Price listed on the UK 
Palgrave site (blurb below) is L19 while the US Palgrave site is 
$23USD;  Amazon, on the other hand, lists it at $25USD, but I see that 
Barnes & Noble is taking orders for $18.36 USD---- it's just out and is 
already in the remainder bins!
         cheers,
         michael

>Reviews:
>
>'Lebowitz's argument about the inadequacy of Marx's formulation of 
>relative surplus value is a major contribution to Marxian thought.' - Tony 
>Smith, Philosophy, Iowa State
>
>'This book offers an outstanding contribution to Marxist theory. It is 
>innovative, clear-sighted and thought-provoking. Lebowitz is one of the 
>most original thinkers of our age. Beyond Capital should be read by all 
>those with an interest in Marx's analysis of capitalism.' - Alfredo 
>Saad-Filho, Political Economy, School of Oriental and Asian Studies, London
>
>Reviews of the first edition:
>
>'...a rigourous, insightful and pleasantly readable book on the theme of 
>class subjectivity, and this should give to any Marxist - especially any 
>Marxist 'political economist' - sufficient reason for reading it.' - 
>Massimo de Angelis, Capital & Class
>
>'If understanding anything involves understanding its limits, then anyone 
>who wants to understand Marxism in general and Capital in particular 
>should read Lebowitz's book.' - James Devine, Monthly Review
>
>'The major theoretical achievement of the book is the construction and 
>analysis of [Marx's] missing book on wage labour.' - David Houston, Review 
>of Radical Political Economics
>
>Description:
>In a completely reworked edition of his classic (1991) volume, Michael A. 
>Lebowitz explores the implications of the book on wage-labour that Marx 
>originally intended to write. Focusing upon critical assumptions in 
>Capital that were to be removed in Wage-Labour and upon Marx's 
>methodology, Lebowitz stresses the one-sidedness of Marx's Capital and 
>argues that the side of the workers, their goals and their struggles in 
>capitalism have been ignored by a monolithic Marxism characterized by 
>determinism, reductionism and a silence on human experience.
