Summary

This volume assesses the validity, through current economic developments, of different historical interpretations linking capitalism, unfreedom, and primitive accumulation. Conventional wisdom holds that Marxism takes its lead from Smith and others in viewing capitalism as based on free labor. Challenging this, it is argued that Marxism fully accepts the need, in certain contexts, for capital to exploit unfree labor.
