This book is devoted to the formulation of the subject-matter of political economy, the pre-capitalist modes of production and the general principles of the capitalist mode of production, covering the stages of the development of capitalism, capital and surplus value, the circuit and turnover of capital, rent and reproduction of social capital.

Imperialism, as the highest stage of capitalism, is analysed. Evidence is given of the concentration of production and capital and the formation of finance capital and the financial oligarchy; the export of capital and the territorial and economic division of the world are studied. The crisis of world capitalism, its essence, the development of state-monopoly capitalism, the crisis and collapse of imperalism’s colonial system, the special features of the reproduction of capital under contemporary conditions, the increasing oppression by monopoly capital and the aggravation of the social contradictions in imperialist countries at the present stage are all studied in particular.

A separate chapter is devoted to critique of bourgeois and reformist theories.
