"This book is intended for the general reader, who may not possess any specialised knowledge of political economy. Some people are accustomed to think of political economy as a dry and boring subject. Yet the economic structure of society contains no fewer fascinating problems and secrets than nature... Scientific socialism is based on the economic theories of Marxism-Leninism. The explanation of the origins and roots of these theories is of great importance if they are to be fully understood and creatively developed." -- From the introduction.
