If you live in Sheffield (once known as the Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire), please do consider coming along to my Capital Study Group. This is a revolving reading group, i.e., once a complete round of sessions are complete, a new round begins. We will be reading Karl Marx’s Capital (Volume One) – I recommend the abridged version of Capital edited by David McLellan and published by Oxford University Press.

Alongside your reading of Capital, you may want to take up one or more of the following supplements:
