Hi Bapuji and Ranganayakamma:

I look forward to reading it. What is the age group for "young child"? Other
than the basics concerning commodity, money, surplus value and exploitation,
and class are there any other topics discussed in _Capital_ which are explained?
Does graphic art or photography accompany the text?

In solidarity, Jerry_______________________________________________
