This collection includes texts by Henryk Grossman that are primarily concerned with economic theory: monographs, articles, essays, letters and manuscript material. Many have never been published in English before, some in any language. The first in four volumes of Grossman’s works, it provides the basis for a deeper understanding of Grossman’s contributions to Marxist economic theory and critique of bourgeois economics. Rick Kuhn’s introduction explains the contexts in which the texts were written and establishes their contemporary relevance.
Henryk Grossman (1881–1950) was the preeminent Marxist economist of the twentieth century. He was the founding theoretician and secretary of the Jewish Social Democratic Party of Galicia, a Professor at the Free University of Warsaw later, as a member of the Institute for Social Research, at the University of Frankfurt, and then at the University of Leipzig.
