This volume includes essential texts--many available here in English for the first time; some available for the first time in any language--by the influential Austrian Marxist Henryk Grossman. This collection pulls from monographs, articles, essays, letters, and manuscript material to assemble Grossman's most important contributions on economic theory. The first in four volumes of Grossman's works, this collection provides the basis for a deeper understanding of his contribution to Marxist economic theory and the critique of bourgeois economics. Rick Kuhn's essential introduction explains the contexts in which the pieces were written and establishes their contemporary relevance.
