Book Description

This book examines the main areas of interest in Marxian economics, paying particular attention to class conflict, analytical Marxism and game theory. Very few books can claim to cover the areas that this book does with such clarity, academic rigour and originality. Its study of game theory and Marxism makes it a particularly unique book that will interest a wider variety of economists and social scientists than would normally be the case.
