A Break-through in Marxian Economic Theory

Clearly this was in part a comment on the relative stagnation in Marxian economic theory in many years (let alone the sorry spectacle of cliches and shibboleths that pass for Marxian economics in many circle').

After a brief exposition of the main ideas in the book I shall offer some general critical comments.
