Generally speaking, I do not re-read books I have written, but to prepare me for upcoming meetings of my UNC course on Marx I have been re-reading Understanding Marx, the first 88 pages of which are assigned for February 3rd. I warned the students the first day that this would be a really hard course, but I had forgotten how compressed and difficult that book is. Chapters One and Two are pretty easy. The long third chapter on the political economy of David Ricardo is very, very demanding. Well, they were warned.
Oh yes, I have found three typos, the first of which matters, although not seriously, the second of which has necessitated an entire substitute page of mathematics to clear up, and the third of which is a trivial “in” for “it.”
I have to admit, this is much more fun than obsessing about Alan Dershowitz’s underwear.
