p>The West has a lot to learn from Japanese Marxist economics, which brings concepts like surplus value, class, the exploitation of labour and commodification to neoclassical economics. This classic work, following in the footsteps of Nobuo Okishio, Michio Morishima and Kozo Uno, provides a historical perspective on political economy and labour exploitation using extensive mathematical modelling.

Suitable for students of economics, this is a new way to approach mainstream economics from a Marxist angle, and a fresh perspective on historical materialism.

Industry Reviews

'The contribution of Japanese writers to the study of Marxist Political Economy remains underestimated in the Anglophone world ... Among the important achievements of Japanese writers is the capacity to shed original light not only on the 'pure economics' of Marx's thinking but on his Political Economy in the broadest sense. Hiroshi Onishi's book is an invaluable addition to the canon which the late Makoto Itoh helped establish. It serves both as a textbook and as a historical introduction to the entire development of modern capitalist society from its pre-capitalist origins to the present day from a Historical Materialist perspective, which all scholars and researchers will welcome. An indispensable read.'

-- Alan Freeman, University of Manitoba
