9781107617308: Friedrich Engels and Marxian Political Economy (Historical Perspectives on Modern Economics)

This book rejects the commonly encountered perception of Friedrich Engels as perpetuator of a "tragic deception" of Marx, and the equally persistent body of opinion treating him as "his master's voice". Engels's claim to recognition is reinforced by an exceptional contribution in the 1840s to the very foundations of the Marxian enterprise, a contribution entailing not only the "vision" but some of the building blocks in the working out of that vision. Subsequently, he proved himself to be a sophisticated interpreter of the doctrine of historical materialism and an important contributor in his own right. This volume serves as a companion to Samuel Hollander's The Economics of Karl Marx (Cambridge University Press, 2008).

Book Description:

This book perceives Engels's early contribution to Marxian economic analysis as providing the vision and several of the processes at play in the working out of that vision. It justifies his defense of Marx against charges of plagiarism regarding surplus-value doctrine; rationalizes his objection that the "utopian" socialists ignored the price mechanism while he himself proposed a central-control system; and analyzes his so-called revisionism in the light of constitutional and welfare reform within capitalism.

About the Author:

Samuel Hollander is University Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto, Canada, where he served on the faculty from 1963 to 1998, and is currently affiliated with the Department of Economics at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel.
