    This brilliant analysis demonstrates what may still come of a careful reading of Marx and how important it is not to put aside works of genius in the illusion that we already know what they have to offer. Desmond McNeill's lucid and compelling exploration of Marx's idea of value demands to be read not only by economists, but by sociologists and anthropologists, because it makes possible a new understanding of fetishism, and in so doing opens fascinating new pathways to social analysis. Christina Toren, Professor of Social Anthropology, University of St Andrews

    This is an important contribution to an understanding of Marx's theory of commodity fetishism.

    I wish I had McNeill's lucid text at hand when I first read Capital I. Though I thought then that I had grasped the concept of fetishism, it turns out that I hadn't! Now, thanks to the analytical care, clarity, and intellectual breadth of McNeill's contribution to political economy and philosophy in the classic, synthetic tradition, I understand commodity fetishism and the mystification of liberal economics. For me, reading this volume was a bracing and necessary re-education. James C. Scott Professor of Political Science and Anthropology Yale University
