A personal narrative (the first 43 pages) combined with an analysis of Marx's economic and social theory with a view to its possible future application.

Eduard Heinmann, the noted German economist and critic of capitalism, said of Shirley Weston's book, "The author claims to have a new key to the understanding of Marxian economics, which would pull the rug from under the dictatorial meaning attributed to it by friend and foe and would establish it as a genuinely democratic system of workers' cooperatives ... it is interesting to see the author produce a very large number of Marx quotations which show that Marx had in mind a truly governing rule in his ... system for his law of value."
