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.

Forthcoming dates from 10th April to 12th June 2018: Tuesdays 5pm-6pm in The Workspace @ University of Sheffield Students’ Union (please email milbassi76@gmail.com to register your interest)
