Tacoma DSA Reading Group: Marx’s Capital Illustrated

August 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

Join the Tacoma DSA Reading Group for the second installment in our three-month series diving into “Marx’s Capital Illustrated” by David Smith and Phil Evans. Published more than a century and a half ago, “Capital” is Karl Marx’s seminal text detailing the inner workings, horrors, and contradictions of the capitalism system—and most importantly, a roadmap for overcoming it.

Given that the first volume alone is more than 1000 pages, a group reading of Capital is outside of the scope of our chapter at the moment. Luckily, David Smith’s illustrated version is a great way to dip your toes in the deep waters of historical materialism and class struggle.

One important note: unlike previous reading groups, the material for these three sessions will come entirely from the book. We will not have a handout or an online version. Please get into contact with me at education@tacomadsa.org if you want a copy for $5. First come, first serve since I’m only able to order a handful at a time. Or you can order directly from Haymarket, where it is currently only $9 (link below). We will be covering pages 65-142 at this meeting.
